Matteo Darmian is expected to leave Manchester United, but Jose Mourinho insists offers have not yet been good enough.

According to a report by Daily Mirror, Harry Maguire is growing increasingly confident of becoming a Manchester United player before they face current club Leicester City in the Premier League season opener.

Mourinho said his team would have to battle to take points out of the opening two fixtures.

The defender indicated that Inter's interest in him is real and admits that there is a chance he will be returning to Italy before the end of the transfer window.

He has voiced his concerns in pre-season with United short, particularly at right-back.

The Italy full-back has been at Old Trafford since 2015, when he signed from Torino. Bookies will not want to give too much away ahead of the new season and are clearly erring on the side of caution when it comes to Mourinho's future.

"Valencia is injured, you are right, and he will be injured for the beginning of Premier League, Diogo Dalot is also in the recovery phase, he will not be ready for beginning of Premier League".

"Chelsea, we know they are interested but they are yet to make a formal offer".

"I would say the third match [against Tottenham Hotspur at home on August 27], playing against a team in a similar situation as us, I think then after three weeks is okay".

Earlier on Tuesday, the Portuguese had been quoted in an interview with ESPN as saying, when asked how many new signings he would like: "I would get two more players".

He continued: 'It's disgusting at times because people only see those things he says in public. While Leicester City are unwilling to sell, their hand may be forced after the English worldwide recently dropped a massive hint about being open to an exit.

"We need to play football and that is 80% of the season, if not 90%, the hardest work".

"And I'm also happy to smile [about Klopp's previous comments] and to see that, you know, you can change your opinion and change as a person, it's amusing".

"Leicester have been unbelievable to me and I'm really happy there but I'm also an ambitious player and everyone wants to play at the top".
