Manchester United Star Lands Huge Blow On Jose Mourinho

Manchester United's transfer window closed with a whimper today. The club did sign Fred, Diogo Dalot and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant.

The centre-back discussion has only become an issue this summer, and the club have felt that the options open to them have not warranted the investment they would have required.

United's pre-season saw them go on tour to the United States, playing five games before travelling to German for a friendly with Bayern Munich. I'd prefer to look to the bench and to have them rather than to have 16-year-old boys without experience and without the power to be Premier League player directly.

Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race. Having joined the Premier League giants back in the summer of 2016, Pogba aided United to win the League Cup and the Europa League but there were reports that the 25-year-old was having feuds with Mourinho as the two mega personalities were having ego's clashing.

Manchester United boast a great record against the Foxes in their own backyard.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer. At United we have to sign big players with experience.

The 396 flights represent about 17 per cent of the airline's 2,400 scheduled journeys. The action is the largest in a series of strikes over pay and conditions.

Throughout the window Mourinho made his displeasure at the lack of business obvious: "My CEO what I want for quite a long time, he knows what I want".

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players". Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard return to training after extended leaves on Monday, which means that they are likely to be unfit for the match.

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of the people is that it's true but it's still a lie".

"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".

"Because you're not telling me Man United couldn't go out there and spend money on players".
