Manchester United v Leicester City

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

Chief football writer Daniel Taylor writes: "United's conclusion was that in most cases Mourinho had targeted defenders who were no better than those they already had".

Summer signing Fred is expected to make his Manchester United debut on Friday but several other players are missing.

However, Real Madrid have been unwilling to let him leave.

Nigerian global Kelechi Iheanacho is likely to lead the line and will be relishing the chance against Manchester United.

"I like my players".

As the clock passed the hour mark, Claude Puel made a pair of changes, bringing Vardy on for Maddison and new arrival Rachid Ghezzal for Amartey, with Mourinho subbing Markus Rashford for Lukaku shortly after.

"It is hard for me to understand, we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Raphael Varane were all linked, but no deals materialised in the window.

The future of Manchester United and French worldwide midfielder Paul Pogba at Old Trafford remains a mystery as the transfer window slowly begins to close as conflicting reports continue to surface.

United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

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

However, Spurs haven't sold any of them, and they may now hope that European clubs come in with bids in the coming weeks, given that the market closes around Europe on August 31.

United's top brass want to follow City by "developing young talents instead of going for big-money older stars" that Mourinho prefers. While Jose Mourinho and the transfer until 5pm to buy in new players, their players can be bought or loaned after the deadline.

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have not given up on signing Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, according to reports coming out of Spain. The Barcelona boss is looking for a player who can lead his midfield and believes the French International could step into the boots. United said they were happy to be kept informed. However, Mourinho's time in charge of the club has been filled with feuding with his players, ownership and the media.
