Varane has been linked with United for some time as Mourinho was the man in charge at Madrid when he joined the La Liga giants from Lens in 2011 and the Portuguese coach has reportedly been keen on a reunion since taking over at Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes England can feel optimistic about their future, despite losing to Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals.

Perisic scored the equalising goal and then provided the assist for Mario Mandzukic's victor as Zlatko Dalic's side came from behind to record a 2-1 victory after extra-time, producing a display that reminded viewers why the former Inter boss had made him his number one transfer target after taking charge of Manchester United last summer.

It's also claimed that Hazard believes now is the right time to leave Chelsea in order to further his career and win more titles. Hazard has inspired Belgium to a place in the World Cup semi-finals, with his side taking on France in St Petersburg on Tuesday.

"Perisic is the kind of winger that is different to the others".

"Normally you look at wingers and they are just fast and creative. Fantastic in the air", he told RT during his role as a World Cup pundit.

"You can only win the header that he won to set up Mandzukic if you're a physically strong player and know how to dominate opposition defenders".
