Manchester United prepared to pay £100m for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane?

Midfielder Fred was Manchester United's main summer signing for a reported £52.7m

"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

"Pogba was a monster, we thought maximum 60 minutes, he managed (more than) 80", Mourinho said after taking his captain off late in the game.

However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season.

"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did", he said.

'We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title.

Jose Mourinho was equally impressed with Shaw's display so supporters will definitely be looking forward to seeing more of him in the left-back spot. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said.

Paul Merson thinks Manchester United should sell Paul Pogba and buy Tottenham Hotspur's Mousa Dembele.

Yes, they went ahead inside the first three minutes through Paul Pogba's penalty, but what was important was the way they went after Leicester right from the off.

"Jose Mourinho is a great manager, one of the best managers in the world over the last 15 years and will go down in history".

"We don't have a penalty-taker, it's how we feel, and I made a decision to take it", Pogba told Sky Sports.

That's not surprising, because I know from experience that everyone is a bit rusty for the first game back.

'Of course, we have second or third choice in case he is not confident or for some reason doesn't want to take it. Andreas Pereira has been rewarded for his fine pre-season while compatriot Fred makes his debut.

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young".

"The target is the Leicester match", said the United manager.

Mourinho had aired his grievances over United's lack of transfer activity on a disastrous preseason tour, and again in the pre-match press conference on Thursday.

"Harry and Jamie came back just on Monday, with few training sessions, but I have a lot of injuries and players not available from the World Cup".
