Mourinho claims he IS happy with his players despite transfer woes

Mourinho claims he IS happy with his players despite transfer woes

The 25-year-old, who won the 2018 FIFA World Cup with his national team, is reportedly being chased by Spanish giants FC Barcelona and Serie A outfit Juventus, but with the English transfer window now closed, it seems unlikely any deal will materialise. Yet, Mourinho will be looking to see his team collect three points in front of their own fans.

"I will focus on the players that are available, so I am not even thinking about that list of injured players I gave you, (Nemanja) Matic, (Antonio) Valencia and so on". When Sir Alex Ferguson was there, they got them over the line but when David Moyes went, he couldn't get players over the line and in the end, he got Everton players because he knew them and could sign them.

Here is all the information you need for Manchester United's home clash with Leicester.

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation. Therefore Manchester United would likely be incentivised to offer Pogba a better contract to ward off Barcelona or drive his transfer fee up for a move in January or next summer.

Manchester United finished 19 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City last season, while bitter rivals Liverpool FC have spent nearly £200m on new signings this summer. The Red Devils and the Foxes have had just 24 meetings between them.


Jose Mourinho confirmed that as many as 10 players are likely to miss the Premier League opener.

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

And while those players are all now back in training, with Lukaku, Rashford and Jones having returned earlier than scheduled, Mourinho has admitted he will still be without a number of key players against Leicester. Leicester City's valuation of Harry Maguire was way too high.

Summer signing Fred is expected to make his Manchester United debut on Friday but several other players are missing.

The 26-year-old then posed for pictures on the pitch before speaking to the media, where he said he would love to be reunited with reported Madrid target Hazard - who remains at Chelsea for the time being.
