Man Utd transfer news: Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone’s brutal reaction to United bid | Football | Sport

Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly started the season as Mourinho’s preferred defensive pairing but the disappointing transfer business led to a poor start to the campaign.  

United won just seven of their opening 17 matches and Mourinho was dismissed following a 3-1 defeat against Liverpool in December.  

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as Mourinho’s replacement following a short stint as interim head coach and the club’s results improved, although a poor end to the campaign meant they finished sixth.  

Having signed Bruno Fernandes in January, the Norwegian’s first summer transfer business was to overhaul the defence that had failed Mourinho and still looked shaky during Solskjaer’s first few months.
