Manchester United were dumped out of the Champions league by Sevilla after their start-studded side fluffed their lines on the big stage, and Mourinho is now demanding for more money.

Manchester United have spent in excess of £600 million on 23 players since Sir Alex Ferguson retired from the club in 2013.

And half of it was spent by current coach Jose Mourinho.

Sir Alex Ferguson, according to spent about $850m on transfers in his more than 26 years in charge at Old Trafford.

During his time at the club, the legendary Scot won 38 trophies, including 13 premier league titles, five FA Cups and two Champions league, among other trophies.

But since his retirement, United have won one FA Cup, the league Cup and the Europa league, and have not really come close to challenging for the title.

On Tuesday, Manchester United crashed out of the last 16 of the Champions League at home to Sevilla.

Wissam Ben Yedder’s double did the trick for the La Liga outfit who thoroughly deserved their victory at Old Trafford, but Mourinho insists he needs more money to turn things around at Old Trafford.

“Everything, everything has to change,” Mourinho reacted to his side’s exit. “Everybody spends money, right? Not just us, right? It’s a natural process, every team invests. It’s not a change for the sake of changing.
“It’s a natural process and we’re not the only team that invests money, all clubs invest money in players.

In just two years, Mourinho have made some high profile additions to his side. If top talents like Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Matic, Lukaku Sanchez and even Bailly could still not turn around United’s fortune, then Sir Alex Ferguson who caught a forlon figure watching from the stands may have to come out of retirement to save the club.

A similar redemption mission is already ongoing at Bayern Munich.
