Manchester United yet to bid for Toby Alderweireld

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho baulked at Tottenham’s asking price for Toby Alderweireld

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho baulked at Tottenham’s asking price for Toby Alderweireld

Mourinho revealed he will be without six senior players for the game against Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool did reach they Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid, but Mourinho is still bristling over the perception of last season as a disappointment for United, who also lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea.

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

'But we have needs, 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 players because everybody is different physically and mentally and to see how they feel they are and to understand how they can help or not help'.

Nevertheless, his side are clear 1/2 (1.50) favourites with bet365 to put that behind them by kicking off the new campaign with a victory in front of their own fans.

Russian Federation warns of 'horrible conflict' if Georgia joins North Atlantic Treaty Organisation
Margvelashvili was speaking at a meeting with the foreign ministers of Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia in Tbilisi. The Russian prime minister described NATO's eastward expansion as a major security threat to Russia.

"I knew what was going to happen, and I told them, but that is what we got. We were not able to motivate ourselves".

And Mourinho has been tetchy in preseason, demanding signings and not getting them.

It was a chain of events that would normally precede a big-money transfer and yet instead, the impasse on Martial's future has served to highlight the now public divide between Mourinho, Woodward and the United board.

He revealed Everton have an agreement with Barcelona and the player over a deal - but United are sniffing around too.

"Castles added: "(United) are scrambling around the market, making offers for Jerome Boateng, they're trying to get back and see if they can get the price down for Toby Alderweireld. "It is time for me to stop thinking about the market", he said.
