Danny Murphy believes Jose Mourinho could walk at the end of the season if Manchester United don’t win any silverware.

The Red Devils finished in second spot in the Premier League table last season to secure their best finish since the Sir Alex Ferguson era.

However, Manchester United’s style of play has attracted criticism despite having attacking talents such as Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

Jose Mourinho’s side finished the season without any silverware following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

The 20-time English champions have signed Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant.

However, Manchester United haven’t signed a centre-half or a wide player despite Mourinho’s desire to improve those key areas.

Former Liverpool FC star Murphy believes Mourinho could quit Manchester United if the Red Devils don’t win silverware.

“If he doesn’t win anything he might go,” Murphy told Sky Sports.

“He might walk in a few months if he doesn’t get the players he wants.”

The Red Devils were 2-1 winners against Leicester in the Premier League on Friday night.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season to secure their best league position since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Ferguson’s men beat Manchester City to the top-flight crown.
