Mourinho Expects "No" Players To Sign For Manchester United Today

Gibson was called up to the England squad in 2017

Reports suggest United are keeping tabs on the likes of Tottenham star Toby Alderweireld, Barcelona striker Ousmane Dembele Leicester defender Harry Maguire and Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic but time is running out as the Premier League transfer window slams shut tomorrow.

Jose Mourinho was left disappointed after United failed to bring in a new signing before the transfer window closed.

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

After a three month break, Premier League football has returned.

When asked if he was happy for City to be favourites, he said: "Since nine years I live with that situation, it's no problem".

"Chelsea with a new manager coming in as well - and I think they'll both be battling it out for fourth".

"It's true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can't achieve that".

Man Utd boss Mourinho: I wanted to give Martial minutes
The Red Devils kicked off the new Premier League season with a 2-1 victory over the Foxes. As I was saying on BBC Radio 5 live on Friday, United have a very strong squad.

Arsenal players have trained so hard as they get ready for their first match the Premier League Champions and Unai Emery will be hoping that they don't disappoint him because he will be hoping to get a great start to his reign at the Emirates Stadium.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has stated that he does not expect to sign a player today.

So far Tottenham's interest in Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been rebuffed with the Championship club holding out for a reported fee in excess of £30 million.

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

"I won't be full from a World Cup", the new captain told Sky Sports following the game.

Spurs are the only side in Europe's top five leagues not to make a single signing this summer, and the only professional side in England not to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

Hello good day and welcome to our continuous and comprehensive coverage of the 2018/19 English Premier League which kicked off yesterday with Man United getting a hard-fought 2-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford.
