Mourinho loses power battle as United board opt against defensive signings

Mourinho is desperate for a centre-back with Harry Maguire still believed be keen to switch Leicester for the Red Devils, just a year after his £17m move from Hull City.

However, clubs in the Premier League can still still sell players or send them out on loan to non-Premier League clubs. Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo also had surgeries after being injured on global duty, with Romero having missed Argentina's entire run in Russian Federation as a result.

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.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said finishing second behind Manchester City last season feels like one of his "biggest achievements" as a manager in football after the criticism he has received.

Three early points and a flawless start to the season.

United would have paid up to £100m (€111m) for Varane but the Frenchman was never available and as the options were put to them over the course of a transfer window there were too many good reasons to ignore them.

Besides the news surrounding the England pair they have also had the injection of new signings Filip Benkovic and Caglar Soyuncu to add to a host of earlier purchases.

"Not getting in a top quality centre-half will be a major disappointment for them". In the USA the game will be shown on NBCSN at 3pm ET. The most recent meeting was won 2-0 by Manchester United in 2017/18.

With only 24 hours to go until Man Utd kick-off their campaign at home to Leicester, Mourinho is not a happy manager.

However, the transfer window has ended and the Red Devils didn't bring in a single extra player to the aforementioned names.

In a clip posted on his Instagram channel, Cantona says: "This weekend is the start of the Premier League".

Several transfer targets were identified but failed to materialise and it seems the United boss doesn't fancy his chances of closing the considerable gap on Champions City with the pool of players left at Old Trafford. Only against Norwich (5) has the Spaniard scored more Premier League goals than he has versus Leicester (4).
