David de Gea kept 18 clean sheets to win the Premier League Golden Glove, and the club can still end the season with silverware as they take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final this weekend.

The Northern Irishman, 32, is an ambitious coach and has been earmarked for a promotion this summer as Mourinho looks to reshape his staff after Faria's surprise departure.

We also stand a good chance to win the FA Cup this season but it is hard to argue with the fact that United have, in fact, been playing tiresome football lately.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba are not included in this list because despite rumors linking them with moves away from Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that they will both be staying next season.

However, United have received a number of loan enquiries from Premier League clubs for McTominay and Mourinho is wary that he won't be able to give the youngster as much playing time next season if he secures his top targets.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho hopes his outgoing assistant Rui Faria will come up towards him in opposition in future. "It changes overnight. I am not training this week".

'Moving forward I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist. If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I'm sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal. I obviously know the club and manager and will be learning off him, the backroom staff, trying to bring the kids through and have an influence on that.

'A couple of years ago I thought maybe it would be a good thing to spend time with the family, but then it's about timing and opportunities, ' said Carrick, who made 464 appearances for United over 12 years after earlier spells with West Ham and Tottenham.

"Just because I was a half-decent player it doesn't guarantee you're going to be a success in whatever you do".

'I think it will be Michael Carrick in the future.

Carrick has been one of the experienced members of United's midfield after Scholes' retirement and now fans are concerned if his absence would create a big gap in the team.

Mourinho was lauding his side's accomplishments as they finished the season 19 points behind runaway champions Manchester City on Sunday, as he suggested criticism of his side's efforts has been misplaced.
