WOLVES boss Nuno Santo has remained coy on rumours linking him to the Manchester United job and was the same on Ruben Neves reports.
There have been some early season struggles at Old Trafford already as reports of unrest continue to filter out of Manchester.
A moody pre-season saw Anthony Martial fined £180,000 for departing the United States training base to be there for the birth of his baby.
And it has left some bad blood between some of the squad and manager, with some poor results following in the Premier League.
A shock loss to Brighton was followed by a thrashing at home to Tottenham which made Mourinho the favourite to be the first to lose his job.
A report in German publication Bild stated that United chiefs had made Wolves boss Santo their top man to replace The Special One.
As well as the manager, their best player was also being sniffed out – with links to midfielder Neves getting stronger and stronger.
However, the Portuguese coach has come out and had his say on the reports – but has not ruled out a move for either him or the player.
“You know me, I don’t talk about that. It doesn’t make sense,” Portuguese boss Nuno said on Friday.
“Now is not the moment to even think. I totally ignore that.”
Asked whether he hoped to manage a club of Manchester United’s stature one day, Nuno responded: “I don’t do like that. I go on a daily basis.
“I know what I have to do tomorrow to prepare the boys well, prepare the team for a tough game against Burnley.
“This is the way I look at the future, day by day. We ignore the situations, it doesn’t affect us.
“The players know the reality, there is no transfers now anyway so there is no point in talking.”
Wolves face struggling Burnley this weekend, with Santo hoping to carry on following their win against West Ham before the international break.
He added: “The international break was in the calendar so we knew it was coming.
“The most important thing is that we established standards in the last game, and we have to maintain those standards.
“Winning is always good and makes things a lot easier when you are trying to establish an identity like we are.”
