Manchester United manager José Mourinho has reached a deal with the Spanish state on a one-year suspended sentence in a long-running tax fraud case, Spain's El Mundo newspaper reports.

The question which arises now is, is it time for Mourinho to step down as the manager of Manchester United?

United, according to sources, are still relaxed about the situation, in part beacause they have a one-year option to fall back on which could keep Pogba at Old Trafford until the summer of 2022.

Mourinho has come under significant pressure in recent weeks after Manchester United lost two of their opening three Premier League games, including a shock 3-2 defeat to Brighton.

Special counsel Robert Mueller to accept some written answers from Trump

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has confirmed that the next few months will determine whether he will leave the Premier League club or stay in England.

Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Marcus Rashford are the players said to be involved, with Rashford showing his unhappiness when he kicked a dressing room door at Turf Moor after being sent off against Burnley.

Joe Hart believes Burnley need to hit the refresh button and come out flying after the global break.

"It's always a good way to have a look and to see the direction they go and try to compare with the things that we watch in video analysis and it's a good experience". I can not say more, " Pogba explained according to UK Sun.

"We will see in March where we are because in March, you can see who is fighting for the title, who is not, who is fighting to be in the top four".
