Manchester United club legend Eric Cantona says he would prefer Guardiola, the current Manchester City boss, lead his former club instead of the team's current manager Jose Mourinho.

And outspoken Frenchman Cantona - victor of four league titles among others at the Theatre of Dreams - believes Guardiola is better suited to United.

The Croatian has firmly established himself among the world's best midfielders since joining Real in 2012, and Pogba will hold similar ambitions at Old Trafford.

"I can not understand why Manchester United take a manager who plays in a defensive way but is a great manager, a great man and I still love him but I prefer to watch a game when Barcelona play". He said that he believes Mourinho's defensive style is not what he would relate with Manchester United.

"But me, if I want to watch a game today, of course, I follow Manchester United because it is my club, but I prefer more creative games like Barcelona".

'I love Mourinho. It is just I prefer it if it is more offensive because it is United'.

Guardiola appears to have finally implemented the style he made so successful at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and Cantona can not understand why United's board would not have wanted him in red. "It's the way I tried to play all my career".

"No, I don't watch Man City because it is Man City but I would love to watch the team managed by Guardiola". Mourinho's men, on the other hand, have scored 11 goals fewer and lost 4 of their 20 games since the start of the season.

The Frenchman, who recently slammed Neymar for his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain, was asked who he thinks could wear the famous No. 7 shirt at United - a number he wore during his time at the club. Valencia and Ashley Young - they are wingers not full-backs.
