Jose Mourinho has started masterminding his plans for Man United next season after sharing a photo on Instagram of his managerial workings.

The Portuguese coach, who replaced Louis van Gaal as United manager this week, posted an image of a folder with the caption 'back at work'.

Mourinho will not conduct his first press conference as United manager until July 7th, but he's already thought to be drawing up a shortlist of transfer targets as he attempts to make United Premier League title contenders for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure in 2013.

The former Chelsea boss must have been encouraged by England's display over Australia on Friday night, when United's attacking duo Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford were on target in a 2-1 win.

Robert Lewandowski’s agent has held talks with Real Madrid after an approach from the Spanish giants.

Cezary Kucharski confirmed the Champions League finalists are interested in bringing Lewandowski to the Spanish capital this summer, although the Polish striker still has three years to run on his Bayern Munich contract.

In an interview with Der Spiegel, Kucharski said: ”Real Madrid approached us a few weeks ago. We have listened to everything and informed Bayern that we have held talks with Madrid."

Lewandowski, who joined Bayern from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund in 2014, added:

"I've been in Germany for six years, have won everything here. Sometimes you have to consider whether it makes sense to try something new."

Alan Judge warned for breaching anti-doping regulations

The Republic of Ireland international suffers from asthma and was found with high levels of salbutamol in his system following a match in August.

He has been warned as to his future conduct, issued with a reprimand and will be target tested for the next two years.

A statement on the FA's website said the Bees' player of the year "was charged after the presence of salbutamol, above the permitted threshold (used via an asthma inhaler) was found in his system and considered not to be an intended therapeutic use of the substance".

Judge, who had been ruled out of Euro 2016 after suffering a serious leg break while playing for Brentford in April, denied the charge but it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Wednesday.

The statement added: "The sanction set by the Regulatory Commission was in accordance with the provisions relating to No Significant Fault or Negligence."

England beat Australia 2-1 in a friendly at the Stadium of Light, with teen debutant Marcus Rashford scoring a brilliant goal in the second minute with only his fourth touch of the game.

Promotion worth £170m to Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday can expect an instant cash boost of at least £170million if they clinch promotion to the Barclays Premier League this weekend.

That is the value of victory to the Owls in Saturday's Sky Bet Championship play-off final - the match regularly billed as the most lucrative one-off game in football - according to financial experts at Deloitte.

Wembley opponents Hull can also expect a huge revenue uplift if they triumph, although the value to them is less, at £110million, as they will have to forgo parachute payments pending following relegation last year.

The record £170million minimum promotion prize is an increase of £40million on the figure estimated for last year owing to the rise in Premier League TV rights. The figure breaks down as £95million for next season - mostly from central distributions but also increased commercial activity and gate receipts - and £75million in guaranteed parachute payments if relegated. If the club avoid the drop next year, the overall figure rises to £290million.

Liverpool have been fined £8,400 by UEFA for their fans letting off fireworks in their Europa League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund.

The decision was made by the control, ethics and disciplinary body and is the second punishment handed out to the Reds this week.

On Tuesday they were fined £35,000 - half of which was suspended for a two-year probationary period - for illicit chanting by supporters during April's two-legged Europa League clash against Manchester United, who were also hit with a similar penalty.

There was a further fine of £13,000 for the offences of setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects, crowd disturbances and a late kick-off.

Liverpool still have disciplinary charges outstanding in relation to more fireworks offences and crowd disturbances relating to last week's Europa League final against Sevilla.
