Alexis Sanchez wants Manchester United to target experienced players like Arturo Vidal

Sanchez came into Manchester United's opening Premier League game against Leicester City on Friday night after a summer spent - unlike most of his teammates - relaxing and recovering for the season ahead.

The ongoing Paul Pogba transfer saga at Manchester United shows no sign of ending with Thursday's 5pm deadline.

Three early points and a flawless start to the season.

Having returned from France's triumph in Russian Federation last month to intense media speculation about his future under United manager Mourinho, the 25-year-old Pogba was named skipper of a team that included debutant Fred. By United's calculations he had simply missed too much football through injury over the last three years - playing no more than 19 league games in each season.

Jose Mourinho has cut a miserable figure all summer after only signing Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.

"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". Clubs from other leagues are also free to bid for Premier League players. "When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1,000 times".

"I like my players and my group". "Pre-season was very hard and we needed this fantastic spirit by the players to manage this performance and this result".

"I'm going to enjoy this season".

It comes after bookies made the former Chelsea boss favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked at 5/1, with Sky Bet placing the likes of Leicester City manager Claude Puel and Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock below the 55-year-old.

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.

"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored", he said.

Pogba, meanwhile, could be on the bench against Leicester despite only training for four days since arriving back in Manchester following his triumph with France in Russian Federation.

"[Paul] arrived on Monday, [feeling] happy, proud, with desire to work".

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight.
