Why Derby County can still sign players despite transfer deadline closing

Why Derby County can still sign players despite transfer deadline closing

United finished above them last season.

Last season may have been their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but the 19-point gap to runaway Premier League champions Manchester City underlined the improvements required.

For the City players meanwhile, the focus is all about Sunday's trip to the Emirates Stadium as the season properly kicks into gear.

Instead, Mourinho was left empty-handed from the final days of the window despite warning that the Red Devils face a hard season by not delivering his targets in the transfer market.

"Maybe there was some interest or a conversation but it's not a case of Monaco not letting me go to Manchester United or denying me the move, nothing ever really materialised".

And with the transfer window closing later today, boss Jose Mourinho is still hopeful of making one more signing.

"When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don't think they [United] have the quality of those two teams at the minute", Scholes said to Sky Sports.


Press Association Sport understands United have been keen to sign a centre-back, but Leicester's reluctance to sell Harry Maguire looks to have scuppered any move for the England star.

Spanish legend Xabi Alonso brought a touch of the X factor to the CFA today as he dropped in to watch Pep Guardiola's squad step up preparations ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener at Arsenal. Mourinho also has selection problems for the Leicester game, with Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Dalot ruled out because of injuries and Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini not considered fully fit after being given extra time off to recover from the World Cup.

"They returned on Monday".

Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku returned early and should be available.

Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri all arrived before the end of July, with Jurgen Klopp eager to work with his full squad throughout pre-season.

"Like any big club, they need some silverware - in his first season at Old Trafford, 2016-17, Mourinho won two trophies - the League Cup and Europa League - but he won nothing last season".
