Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed Financial Fair Play (FFP) sanctions against their rivals may be the club's best chance of winning the Premier League title once again.

As quoted by the ?Evening Standard, he said: " I’m not speaking about our own situation, but you can finish 10th, I’m not saying us, a team can finish 10th and a manager feels like a champion.

"Another thing is if they stop or if Financial Fair Play makes them stop.

Pep Guardiola's side however are ?facing the prospect of a Champions League ban due to alleged breaches in FFP regulations, wi th Mourinho suggesting club's adhering to those rules could be his side's best effort of 'closing the gap'.

?United are currently eighth in the ?Premier League after a difficult start to the campaign, although Mourinho has claimed the club's current standing in the table only highlights how much of an achievement it was to finish second last season.

The club haven't won the league since 2012/13, in Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in charge, and it looks as if the Red Devils' wait for the title could be prolonged for another season due to the 18 point gap between themselves and current leaders Manchester City.

Asked when United will challenge for the league title once again, as quoted by ?Sky Sports, he replied: " It depends also the way of our evolution but also the evolution of others, the ones that are above us.
