Jose Mourinho 'would have left any other club but Manchester United'

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho reportedly tells friends that he would have quit this summer if he was in charge of any other club.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho would have reportedly quit this summer if he was in charge of any other club.

The Portuguese boss endured a frustrating transfer window as chief executive Ed Woodward failed to bring in his primary transfer target of a central defender, signing only Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant during the summer.

Rumours of a fallout between Mourinho and Woodward have been rife since the transfer window closed, and The Mirror reports that the former Chelsea boss is still seething at the club's lack of ambition in the market.

Mourinho reportedly believes that his chances of closing the gap on champions Manchester City have been undermined by Woodward's refusal to spend the money needed to bring in a new centre-back.

The 55-year-old is understood to have told friends that he would have left any other club in protest had he been treated the same, but only stayed because of Manchester United's stature.

The Red Devils were linked with the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Diego Godin and Yerry Mina throughout the window, but failed to secure the services of any of their targets.

United's defensive frailties were exposed in just their second game of the season, when they were beaten 3-2 by Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.
