Marko Arnautovic has admitted that he was “honoured” to hear that Jose Mourinho was in the stands to watch him in action for Austria last week amid talk of a move to Manchester United this summer.

Mourinho sparked reports that the Red Devils could be set to make a summer move to try and bring the West Ham United star to Old Trafford in the coming weeks after he was pictured attending Austria’s 1-0 win over Russia on Wednesday night.

The fact that Mourinho was watching the game inevitably prompted lots of speculation that Manchester United could be set to line up a move to sign the West Ham United star this summer.

And the player himself has admitted that he and his team-mates were delighted to hear that the Manchester United boss was in attendance on Wednesday night.

Speaking to Austrian newspaper Kurier, Arnautovic said: “It is a great honour for our entire team that a coach like Mourinho is watching us.”

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a team capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils ended this campaign without a trophy and in second place in the top flight table.
