I was thinking: 'Go and score, five, six, seven'.

José Mourinho is considering promoting Kieran McKenna, Manchester United's under-18 coach, to his backroom staff as a result of the impending departure of Rui Faria. The team captain this season, Carrick will not be playing the backdrop either, as he intends to hit the ground running on his overnight transition.

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.

Jose Mourinho confirmed before the game that the Frenchman would start against Watford in the final match of the domestic year. That's part of being on the staff to work with the manager to try to get what's best for the club.

"They finished second and could win the FA Cup but let's face it. this is one of the most boring United teams", Redknapp said in his column in the Daily Mail.

The following day he began his new job as a member of manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff, with the small matter of this weekend's clash with Chelsea at Wembley to prepare for. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean.

"I think it will be Michael Carrick in future, when he has his badges".

Michael Carrick's absence on the field will no doubt be felt after he called time on his 12-year stint at the Manchester club.

"You never know what is going to be around the corner. I've been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager", he said.

The Red Devils have had to endure a hard season.

"In the league, which is where everybody wants to be measured, you have to say that second is progression from where Manchester United have been, but it's not a successful season for Manchester United when you don't win the league".

According to The Telegraph, any move is dependant on whether or not Benfica sack current boss Rui Vitoria, who is under mounting pressure at the Lisbon club having lost the Portuguese league to Porto this season.
