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

Mourinho Expects

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho thinks finishing second last season was one of his greatest achievements as a manager.

In late July the Portuguese said he was confident of getting at least one more signing through the door, but hopes have faded as Thursday's 5pm deadline edged closer.

Jose Mourinho has repeatedly expressed his desire to strengthen Manchester United's defence after they finished second in the Premier League last term.

"I said many times, we can not spend every season what we spent last season. I have to focus on the players I have and the next few matches".

"The information I have is no".

Manchester United have been hit by injuries throughout the pre-season tour of the United States and there are plenty of first-team stars that have only just returned from their holidays due to exploits in the World Cup this summer. "That is my experience at Barcelona and Bayern Munich".

Manchester United have not had a particularly busy transfer window. "Raheem and Kevin had three weeks off after the World Cup, not too much time but both arrive flawless".

"They returned on Monday".

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel".

"The net expenditure is a record as it stands but you'd think with three weeks left for European clubs to buy Premier League players, and Premier League clubs by the looks of it not having done their selling yet, it might not stay that way".

While Harry Maguire started for Leicester and Jamie Vardy came off the bench, Mourinho opted against starting Romelu Lukaku and used a number of unusual starters including Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian, Andreas Pereira, and Victor Lindelof.

'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. What happened last season, we have learned and we know what to do.
