Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly growing increasingly angry with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over a lack of movement on transfers.
Mourinho took a swipe at Woodward at the start of the season after the club failed to back him in bringing in a new central defender.
According to The Telegraph, Mourinho is now on a fresh collision course with his superiors as he is desperate for the troublesome position to be filled next month, but he is unsure if any work is being done to ensure that he lands one of his targets.
A source close to the Portuguese is quoted as saying: "Nobody important from the board of directors was there in Valencia. We are near the beginning of the transfer window and nobody knows anything.
"They are not working on selling players, they are not working on buying players. And they have 58 scouts and three scouting bosses. It is ridiculous. Jose believes this is not the best way to rule a football club."
