"If you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and football potential starts with investment after that of course there is a quality of the work, of the organisation, I think that is untouchable". What I don't like is that they focus on his reaction and not the insults.

Paulo Dybala has admitted that he would like to be reunited with good friend Paul Pogba but insisted that he has no intention of leaving Juventus because of his burgeoning partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United will lose more matches if they do not "grow up" and "start well", says boss Jose Mourinho, BBC Sport reports. "Three points, three points, three points, so we're champions, the target, we did it".

"Like all the games are so tight, last minutes no team controlled the game and you have to defend well and try to attack like we've done in the last few games".

Manchester United and Manchester City's French players are set to party in Paris on Sunday night, irrespective of the result of the Manchester derby, sources have told ESPN FC. But in this moment, I can only say he trains with the team.

Meanhwhile, Hoffenheim revived their hopes of reaching the Champions League last 16 as Pavel Kaderabek scored an injury-time equaliser to cap a dramatic comeback with 10 men and snatch a 2-2 draw at Lyon.

"He is nowhere near the player we used to know". We have lost two finals in the past four years and last year we played a great game against Real and were unlucky to lose. They've already showed they can recover.

Manchester City are likely to recall all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero, who was an unused substitute against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. "I don't think it's the way to look at the match".

Romelu Lukaku, who has missed United's last two games, including their big midweek win over Juventus, is also a doubt for derby day with Jose Mourinho waiting to see if he might be available.

"They are a small club with a small mentality. I expect a hard game but, in a derby, everything is possible, and we will be ready for that".

"You know, I think we have to just think about the match". If he can embrace the situation then he can have an impact on this massive game - his assists and goals are fantastic and this season he seems to have stepped yet up again and become an influential part of this team.
