Jerome Boateng rejects Manchester United move

Jerome Boateng rejects Manchester United move

Sources have told ESPN FC that United are interested in central defenders Jerome Boateng, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina but Mourinho - who has said the season could be "difficult" if the squad is not bolstered - admitted at a news conference on Thursday he is not expecting any new arrivals.

However, despite links to numerous targets, United are yet to reinforce.

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

But, according to reports in Bild and kicker as well as on broadcaster Sky, Boateng called United manager Mourinho on Tuesday to inform him he won't move to Old Trafford.

I'm not confident, I'm not confident as the market closes today so it is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed.

Liverpool have invested heavily over the summer as they look to pose a challenge to last season's runaway champions, Manchester City, but the same can't be said for United. 'When I listen, when I read, it's hard to believe we finished second because you are capable of making people who finish second (sound like we) were relegated.

"In Championship Manager you can just press a button", he stated.

Manchester United stormed to a 4-0 win over West Ham United last season, and they are second to Chelsea with 13 wins in their last 20 opening day matches, while Arsenal won a seven-goal thriller with Leicester last season in their first match, as they beat the Foxes 4-3, and the Gunners have won 12 of their opening 20 matches in the Premier League. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
