Jose Mourinho reveals he speaks to Mauricio Pochettino about Manchester United's transfers

Mourinho spoke to the player in Portuguese and Pochettino claimed that he had put Dier in a compromising position.

Danny Rose, meanwhile, has just recently returned to first-team action for Tottenham, having been out of action since January with a knee problem.

Asked about Shaw at the end of his press conference ahead of Saturday's meeting with Tottenham, Mourinho said: "I'm anxious about Fellaini and not about Luke Shaw, because Fellaini finishes his contract and Luke Shaw doesn't".

"After all the words and the feeling of all the players, I don't need to speak about the words, so please do not pay the sources". I'd take Pochettino. I think he's done a fantastic job at Tottenham.

"He used to call me his son, that's how good our relationship was".

The injured Fellaini has become a key part of Mourinho's plans (he is "more important than you will ever know") but his deal expires next summer. We controlled them very well and I think we had more chances to win the match than they had. Probably. But, if I was [Romelu] Lukaku for instance in that game against Liverpool, would I have enjoyed that football match? No.

"You can not even be lucky all the time".

United and Spurs are level on 20 points in the Premier League and sit as the closest challengers to leaders Manchester City on the eve of a keenly anticipated Old Trafford clash.

"I was just describing some situation that happened in the past and is not an issue".

Shaw signed a four-year deal when he swapped St Mary's for Old Trafford, but United are set to trigger a one-year extension that will keep him at the club until 2019.

Amidst reports of rift between Jose Mourinho and Ander Herrera, United got back to winning ways.

Mourinho has also insisted Luke Shaw could have a future at United despite the defender saying, also in Pochettino's book, that he would like to be reunited with the former Southampton boss.
