Mourinho hopeful World Cup stars can face Leicester

Man Utd transfer news Will Ed Woodward spend

Man Utd transfer news Will Ed Woodward spend

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his worldwide future.

The uncertain future of Yerry Mina remains up in the air but Jose Mourinho has ruled out a move to bring the Barcelona defender to Manchester United.

He can also be backed at 6/4 not to be in charge for the club's final game of the season, and 10/1 to be the first sacking and United to finish outside of the top-4.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah - a contender to play at centre half, but most probably at right back, considering United's options - has arrived at Premier League newcomers Fulham to agree a season long loan after spending a year ago on loan at Selhurst Park.

They were never interested in Boateng either.

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.

The club only wanted to sign a defender in the bracket of Raphaël Varane, although Real Madrid would not listen to any offers for the World Cup victor. "He is an example of the type of players we need to sign to win trophies and compete at the highest level", Sanchez said.

"But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same".

Contrary to current belief though, Mourinho has been fairly successful in the transfer window in his two years at Manchester United and has built perhaps the strongest side Old Trafford has seen since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013. Even the statistics, as great as they are, do not equate to the gulf.

Three early points and a ideal start to the season.

The Portuguese went some way to countering suggestions he is unhappy with his squad at his pre-match press conference. "I like to work with my players".

"When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1,000 times is still a lie".
