Mourinho sends message to Wenger ahead of final EPL meeting

Mourinho sends message to Wenger ahead of final EPL meeting

"We need to keep progressing; United is a big club, to which I am still adapting, and I am looking forward to giving everything I've got next year and aiming to win everything there is to win".

"I think Man United fans know that until 2004 for about a decade was between Man United and Arsenal, was between Sir Alex and Mr Wenger and I think that these great teams Arsenal had and they fight shoulder to shoulder with Man United made Man United better and better".

Asked if De Gea could leave Manchester United this summer, Mourinho said: "No chance".

"We have to get United back to their best, back in the Champions League, back as the champions of England, back to the top". I had it edited to point out how Arsenal performed every time we didn't have the ball.

Zinedine Zidane's side continue to be linked with a move for the 27-year-old, but Mourinho is not anxious about him leaving.

"It's easier for you to say negative things about me and not positive things".

But he has steadily improved and produced a particularly effective display against Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final, scoring the victor as United triumphed 2-1.

Wenger went on to win the Premier League twice more, memorably seeing his team navigate their way through the 2003/2004 league campaign without losing a single game. As you can imagine, before I play matches, especially European matches, I spend a lot of time analysing the opposition that I don't know as well as I know the teams that play in my competition domestically. "I want to go peaceful and with Mourinho as well because he is a great manager".

Mourinho's Wenger love fest continued at his weekly news conference today, ahead of the two sides clashing at Old Trafford on Sunday. I will say goodbye to Mourinho and to everybody'.

Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez is still adapting to life at Manchester United following his move from Premier League rivals Arsenal in January, the striker has said.

He added: "I think that a team without a Brazilian isn't a team". (Dennis) Bergkamp, Thierry (Henry), (Sol) Campbell, incredible team, so again thank you very much for that.
