Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata set for reunion with Mourinho

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

Manchester United have broken their record transfer fee twice in 2014, with vastly different levels of success. Juan Mata has rarely sparkled since his 37.1 million-pound move from Chelsea in January, but Angel Di Maria has been in impressive form, having been signed for 59.7 million pounds in the summer. Jose Mourinho, who visits Old Trafford with Chelsea this weekend, might have predicted how things would go.

Mourinho, of course, has coached both, and his perception of the duo tallies closely...

Manchester United can beat Chelsea if Van Gaal makes tough call

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea are off to their best start to the season since, well, Jose Mourinho's Chelsea in 2005. Manchester United, on the other hand, have made their slowest start since Russell Beardsmore roamed the right flank of Old Trafford and Mal Donaghy was the great hope from the summer transfers.

Chelsea are heavily favoured to win in Manchester on Sunday, but there is precedent for United beating the odds.

The situation was not dissimilar the day after Guy Fawkes Night in 2005. Mourinho's...

Man Utd's failure to land Fabregas signals shift in balance of power

Cesc Fabregas could have had a similar impact at Old Trafford, had he joined.

It was in the middle of July in 2013 and a flight was suddenly required to transport Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward back from Australia to England. "Urgent transfer business" was the designated reason and, a few days later, it became clear why, as Cesc Fabregas was duly announced as United's record signing.

Woodward and David Moyes had demonstrated that the club's pulling power remained intact despite the departures of David Gill and Sir Alex Ferguson. The new manager looked...

Man Utd or City? Dad auctions off baby son's club allegiance for charity

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

Originally hailing from Watford and a Hornets fan by trade, a new father from Manchester has accepted that he will probably be powerless to prevent his baby from growing up supporting one of the city's big two teams and, as such, is now auctioning off his seven-month-old son's club allegiance in the name of charity.

Ian Charters, 30, has posted the rather unusual listing on eBay, which will see the winning bidder allowed to choose which Manchester club, United or City, little Eddie will grow up to...

Man Utd fans wrong to write off Van Persie and Januzaj despite concerns

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal still thinks his team can win the Premier League despite being 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

When Manchester United were first linked with signing Robin van Persie from Arsenal in the summer of 2012, the fans were fairly dismissive.

United very rarely signed players who were already at their peak, so Van Persie -- having won the Golden Boot in the previous season as well as being named the PFA and FWA Player of the Year -- certainly wasn't their usual type.

Having just lost the title on goal difference to Manchester City, United were in need of something special, though, and the supporters...

Who deserves the blame for Manchester United's struggles?

ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not believe Alex Ferguson when he says David Moyes' failures were not his fault.

Manchester United are in decline, and Sir Alex Ferguson has used the publication of his new, updated autobiography to deny that he is to blame. David Moyes told the BBC last week that he thought the club were at fault because they failed to support him last season. You sense that Louis van Gaal couldn't care less who's to blame or what you think, but he definitely won't be accepting responsibility anytime soon either.

Never has it been more true that success has many fathers and failure is an orphan.

But...
