Manchester United wanted to pay £100m plus for Rafael Varane

Manchester United Vs Leicester City Match Preview: Team News, Predicted Line-Up And Stats Mourinho worried as Premier League kicks off
Sergio Cook | 10 August, 2018, 14:04

Jose Mourinho's hopes of reinforcing the Manchester United squad were extinguished as the transfer deadline came and went without any new arrivals.

Their only signings this summer were Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.

The Chile global, 29, said he feels more comfortable at United now following a full preseason with the club and hopes to combine more effectively with teammates Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku this term, beginning with the season-opening match against Leicester City on Friday. The agenda here is real!

Fresh from a well-deserved break after winning the World Cup with France, Pogba has linked up again with his United team-mates at the Aon Training Complex this week.

According to the Argentinian manager, the whole transfer saga with Manchester United has been a load of smoke and mirrors, as the Belgian centre back is firmly staying with the Lilywhites.

However, clubs in the Premier League can still still sell players or send them out on loan to non-Premier League clubs.

"It's [improving] positively, it goes better". Then you might have half a chance.

"It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different". If it's not going well, though, I don't want to hear the moaning and groaning and I am sure the United fans don't want to hear it as well. "I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second [place] last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

Contrary to current belief though, Mourinho has been fairly successful in the transfer window in his two years at Manchester United and has built perhaps the strongest side Old Trafford has seen since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013.

Another said: "King @ericcantona to be next manager #ggmu". So first and foremost, United's only goal should be trying to be very competitive in the Champions League and dominating English football again.

"Over a year ago now they chases Ivan Perisic".

Fair comment, or agenda-driven Manchester United vitriol?
