Ibrahimovic makes guest appearance as De Gea storms Man United awards

David de Gea has overtaken Cristiano Ronaldo on Manchester United's roll of honour by landing a record-breaking fourth Player of the Year award.

It's not something which exists beyond Under 16's Sunday leagues, however, the Portuguese tactician has taken the initiative to encourage the players who are overshadowed by skilful figures.

Marouane Fellaini says Manchester United are aware "that they went wrong" over his contract negotiations last season. Now, I'm in a strong position, especially since Mourinho has said he wants to keep me. Not that they won't allow Hazard to leave without a fight with the Guardian reporting that Abramovich is "still hopeful Hazard will sign a new contract". "So this time we try to do it in a way where I am not sad".

"In March 2017, Matic told me I want to play for Manchester United".

"You know how much it means to the staff and all the players around you so it's important".

When asked about a potential move to the Far East, Fellaini added: "I would not have a problem with life in China".

"It's hard to say with words what Manchester United means for me, for anyone", he said.

"It's wonderful to play for the club, the history, the fans, everything".

However, even if the 24-year-old was unable to recover in time, Mourinho will be comforted with having several other attacking options, including the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez, although none have set the world alight this term. The 30-year-old current's deal is due to expire at the end of the current campaign but manager Jose Mourinho is seemingly desperate to prolong the midfielder's stay.

Antonio Conte head coach / manager of Chelsea during the Premier League match between Burnley and Chelsea at Turf Moor on April 19, 2018 in Burnley, England. Increased starting time is believed to be high on the player's list of demands before he signs a new deal at the club. He is a very intense man and I think he will probably feel the same contempt for Mourinho as a person that we all feel.

"So I thought this kid can not go home without an award, so he's going to get my award".
