Man Utd Transfer News Jose Mourinho

The 2015-16 Premier League champions insist they are under no pressure to sell after Riyad Mahrez joined Manchester City for £60 million and will only entertain offers well above the 25-year-old's market value, something United have so far refused to consider.

With United due to start their Premier League campaign against Leicester on Friday night, Mourinho will hold his first press conference of the season at 9.30 a.m. on deadline day.

Both clubs have England internationals who went on an extended dalliance in Russian Federation and have only recently returned from their holidays.

Getting Mata in would represent a late win for Spurs, and if they can't get Martial, the Spaniard should be their next option. Eric Bailly and Ander Herrera left the field of play with suspected injuries, but both are expected to make a return as it is assumed their substitutions were precautionary. Jonny Evans, James Maddison and Nampalys Mendy are all doubts for the opening fixture.

Jose Mourinho fears Manchester United will fail to make a single signing on transfer deadline day.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group [of World Cup players] because everybody is different physically and mentally to see how they feel, how they are and to understand if they think how they can help or not help".

North Korea appears to continue dismantling a rocket launching site, a US think tank said, based on satellite images. "The United States has lived up to the Singapore declaration".

Asked to confirm that he is expecting no movement at all on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no".

Most club managers would see this is as a blessing but considering how he's spoken about Paul Pogba in the meantime it seems like he's annoyed that his players dared to play well and, even worse, with good style!

'I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to this first couple of matches.

"I wouldn't write him off".

"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next".

On the chances of Vardy or Maguire featuring in the season opener: "If we are serious I think they can not participate in the first game, with just five days training with the team".
