Mourinho expects Valencia back in Man Utd team for Anderlecht

Jose Mourinho does not believe David De Gea has been distracted by renewed talk of a move to Real Madrid, with the Manchester United manager, saying it would be irresponsible to be affected by transfer speculation.

Sergio Romero is a guaranteed starter between the sticks with David de Gea being left out due to a minor hip problem.

'When any team arrives in the quarter-final of a European competition, every team starts feeing that it is possible.

However, his future is certainly not at the Theatre of Dreams and he's told his team-mates that he will leave at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.

Manchester United are among the greatest favourites to win the UEFA Europa League this year.

"We played with the players available [against Sunderland]", Mourinho said.

Sunderland defender Jason Denayer has warned former club Anderlecht about Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marouane Fellaini ahead of the Belgian side's Europa League clash against Manchester United.

Mourinho may opt to keep him out of action for the quarter-final first leg and bring him back for Sunday's league fixture against leaders Chelsea instead.

"End of season is the time where players can be thinking about what is going to happen with their careers".

Dolberg was one of the stars of the Dutch league early in the season but has been sidelined in recent weeks by an injury he picked up in the last 16 of the Europa League.

"The Europa League is a massive thing for us now - it's a trophy and it gives us qualification for the Champions League".

I'd love to play in the games coming up and especially with the Europa League to help the team push towards the final.

"We need and we don't need", the Portuguese said.

Pogba feels that England's top flight has proved to be more competitive than ever this term but insists United are ready to return to Europe's elite. My feeling is that we will fight with everything we have in both competitions.
