Jose Mourinho ‘overachieved’ with Man United — Sky Sports pundit

Toby Alderweireld, Willian, Harry Maguire, Ivan Perisic, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin were linked with moves to Old Trafford, though no deals materialised prior to Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City.

Elsewhere, Everton is hopeful of tying up a deal for Barcelona center-back Yerry Mina, who scored three times for Colombia at the World Cup, and Brazilian winger Bernard.

According to the Argentinian manager, the whole transfer saga with Manchester United has been a load of smoke and mirrors, as the Belgian centre back is firmly staying with the Lilywhites.

However, the Red Devils are believed to have informed the La Liga giants that they aren't desirous to strike Pogba off their books.

Pogba, 25, signed for United for a then-world record fee of £89.3 million in 2016 and helped the club in the Europa League in his first season back at the club.

"The manager tried to sign a centre-back, wasn't allowed to do it and he's nearly been left with us". The amount of time he has spent injured over the past few seasons was enough to put United off any negotiations for the German. However, Metro reports that as far as Tottenham's boss is concerned, there is no move. Internally, the greatest frustration for Mourinho has been waiting for the return those players who had the longest World Cup campaigns.


Unlike in England, the window for the rest of Europe's leading leagues doesn't close until later in August, meaning Premier League clubs have faced even more inflated prices when buying from the continent.

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

"I said that during pre-season - it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane - but I repeat, pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work with".

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website).

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

"But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group".
