Paul Scholes - I don't see Manchester United challenging in Premier League

Van Gaal was blamed by Neville

According to L'Equipe, the 46-year-old is now keen to test his ability in the English top flight, and is especially interested in taking charge of Manchester United.

Last month, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was second favourite at 11/2, while Carlo Ancelotti, who has won the Champions League three times, is at 10/1.

Mourinho is under huge pressure win the Premier League this season after failing to win a trophy at Old Trafford last campaign.

The man accused of deliberately starting the fire appeared in court on Friday, but his arraignment was postponed. Meanwhile, the Ranch Fire continued its spread across another 13,000 acres leading into Monday morning.

However, should Zidane contact the United hierarchy about becoming their manager, they will need to make a quick decision or risk losing the Frenchman to another Premier League club.

Manchester United's lack of new signings combined with the uncertainty surrounding the team's strategies and form gives the club a very small chance of challenging for the Premier League title, former midfielder Paul Scholes has said.

He has previously played for Real Colorado as part of the US soccer development academy and was earmarked for a place in United's U18s squad this season after impressing on trial last season.

Asia shares dip as Turkey's lira tanks
A Financial Times report meanwhile suggests the European Central Bank does not yet view the situation in Turkey as critical. Many analysts have said the problem wouldn't be so out of hand if Turkey's central bank had been left to do its job.

Several factors, including the success of Txiki Begiristain at rivals Manchester City as well as a turbulent summer transfer window amid murmurings of discontent between chairman Ed Woodward and manager Jose Mourinho, are said to be reasons behind the move.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Anthony Martial was left on the bench in Manchester United's Premier League opener at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils forced into using other options.

Diego Godin was an alternative, but the move was never seen as viable, while Jerome Boateng was also linked with the club but the figures were not right for United given his recent injury record.

Messi becomes Barca's most decorated player with 33rd title
Sevilla qualified for the Supercopa as runners-up of the Copa del Rey following Barcelona's domestic double. In their last notice for the 18-19 season, only three were due to be permitted, without exception.

Do you think United would be a good fit for Zidane should Mourinho get sacked?
