'I am very happy in England, my contract is up in the summer, and I'm in talks with Manchester United in order to see what happens, ' Mata told El Transistor after United's win over Juve.

'Today's was important and then we went on and scored again'.

Juventus, on the other hand, looked risky every time they went forward thanks to the link-up play between Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala.

Under-fire Jose Mourinho and Manchester United revelled in an incredible smash and grab victory at Juventus, while Real Madrid continue their revival and Cristiano Ronaldo watches on as his magnificent volley counts for nothing.

"I think tonight a lot of people would have wrote us off", Shaw said after the match. "I wouldn't do that gesture again but I don't think I offended anyone and at the time it seemed like the appropriate response to those who had insulted all my family, apart from my Inter one too".

This time he had another win to celebrate, after watching his team fight back from Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular opening goal.

Even as Mourinho was goading the home fans, Leonardo Bonucci and Paulo Dybala ran towards Mourinho and questioned the Portuguese tactician over his seemingly provocative gesture.

It was Juventus' first defeat in any competition this season.

"Probably when Manchester United had heroics here (in 2003), Manchester United was the best team", Mourinho said. "But the others [Juventus fans] didn't forget".

After two goals in the final four minutes secured a vital three points in Europe, Mourinho responded to persistent abuse from the Juve fans, aware of his history as a former manager of rivals Inter, by cupping his hand to his ear.

"And they (Juventus) are a top team for many years now".

It was a disappointing week for Juventus Women as we were beaten 3-0 by Milan on Sunday.

It's hard not to feel sorry for Musk, who as a genius tech entrepreneur is probably not used to bowing down to authority. In premarket trade on the Nasdaq exchange Thursday, Tesla's share price was up 0.24 percent at $349.00.

And in a post-match interview with Swedish broadcaster Viasat, the United boss also settled another score. "It's OK to lose against United, but seeing how the match went it leaves us with a bit of a bitter taste".

"So ask the FA, they will translate for you", beamed Mourinho. But I respect Juventus and the quality they have.

Allegri raised his eyebrows and gave a smile of appreciation at the goal.

The turnaround began when Juan Mata scored from a free kick four minutes from full-time, having been brought on as a substitute by Jose Mourinho in the 79th minute.

For the ball to bounce in off Sandro's head was an ugly way for United to clinch the win but it gave them the result they wanted, so who cares?
