Jose Mourinho reveals Nemanja Matic would like to sign for the club after a photo emerged of him wearing a Man United training kit.

Phil Jones has been banned for two matches and Daley Blind fined by UEFA after the Manchester United pair were found guilty of breaching the governing body’s doping regulations after the Europa League final in May.

Press Association Sport reports that Jones was verbally abusive toward a doping control officer after he was requested to attend drug-testing after the final in Stockholm on May 24, and will now miss the UEFA Super Cup match against Real Madrid next week and United’s first Champions League group stage match in September. He has also been fined €5,000.

Press Association Sport said Blind was reluctant to take a test as requested because he wanted to celebrate with his teammates, whose 2-0 victory over Ajax ensured their qualification for this season’s Champions League. He was fined €5,000.

There is no suggestion that either player was guilty of doping.

United have been fined €10,000 over the rule breaches. The club are reported to be aware of UEFA’s decisions, and have three days to appeal against them. However, have not yet indicated to UEFA whether they will or not.
