United's Bailly ruled out for three months

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's Manchester United career is in serious peril after a row with Jose Mourinho following a video analysis session.

"Bailly goes to surgery - the decision is made".

Defender Luke Shaw is another potential January departure, although the indications have been that the former Southampton player intends to remain at Old Trafford for the rest of the season.

The derby defeat against leaders Manchester City on Sunday, and their neighbours' rampant form, appears to have had a major impact on United this week as they stare at an 11-point gap to Pep Guardiola's side.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has claimed that his experience of lifting Real Madrid back to the top of the European game will stand him in good stead at Old Trafford.

Mourinho revealed after the 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Wednesday night that the injury was more serious than first thought and they were deciding whether he would have to go under the knife. "Marcos Rojo was injured [against Manchester City] but nothing really big", Mourinho said.

Mkhitaryan, 28, has been absent from seven of United's last eight matchday squads and sources at Old Trafford have confirmed that the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder angered Mourinho by disagreeing with the manager's assessment of his contribution during a substitute appearance against Brighton on November 25. I had that experience before.

Messi: My Generation Must 'Disappear' Should Argentina Fail To Win 2018 W/Cup
But Messi believes he should be recalled in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation . They reached the final at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but suffered defeat to Germany.

"When you're cooking for 200-odd people, that's a lot of time, effort and money going straight into the bin". When I went to Real Madrid we were in a hard moment.

Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: "I think for the right price".

"I don't speak about players, especially players who belong to other clubs."

Mourinho said: "I didn't celebrate either".

That length of lay-off puts Bailly's hopes of taking part in February's Champions League tie with Sevilla in doubt and also brings the January transfer market into view.

"But there are players and situations that sometimes you have the chance to do and you shouldn't lose that chance".
