Pereira eager to impress Mourinho in search of Man United role

Now back at the North West side, he is eager to prove his worth to his Portuguese boss, and try and claim a place in the Man United starting eleven.

He might well say himself that he wasn't ready to lead Chelsea's line at that point. "At the moment, from what I've seen at Everton, I don't see him being a success".

Lacazette (26) has now joined Arsenal from Lyon in a club-record deal worth £52million, with Wenger watching him score 100 goals in 203 league appearances for Lyon.

He is a little like Didier Drogba, the marksman who gave Chelsea their DNA during Mourinho's first spell at Stamford Bridge. But, if he is willing to accept a supporting role behind Lukaku then it could be the end to his United career he dreamt about last summer.

He is expected to play a part in Manchester United's pre-season tour.

It's understood the 22-year-old, who has been fretting over his long-term United existence, met with Mourinho on Monday afternoon after completing an individual training session at their UCLA training camp.

You can nearly guess what the conversation would have been like over at Old Trafford or in Los Angeles, where United are camped for their preseason tour.

Mata feels it will be money well spent if he can help them celebrate a first domestic title triumph since 2013 next May.

"I know that the boy Morata is the people's choice because he's a more glamorous one".

"Yes he's come into a much bigger club, no disrespect to Everton, they are a magnificent club themselves but when you make this step up, the scrutiny, the expectation is something that has gone up another level".

His recovery is said to have "astounded" the club's medical team and he could be back on the pitch as early as 2018.
