Signings have not improved United, claims Mourinho

Man Utd transfer news LIVE

A fascinating piece by Daniel Taylor, in The Guardian, details some of the reasons why United opted not to splash big money once the likes of Varane were not on the market.

He added: "There are ways to improve your team: one way is to spend a lot of money and to bring in lots of important players, another way is to work and that's the way we have to do it".

"I asked for five players and they did not bring me any". Having left the club's United States tour to attend the birth of his child, the French forward will now "start again", Mourinho said, with pre-season training.

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

Mourinho welcomed back World Cup players Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini on Monday - the first time he has had his complete squad this summer.

Transfer: Manchester United in talks to sign Chelsea defender
Everton were linked with a deadline day loan swoop for Chelsea's Premier League youngster Kurt Zouma , but the transfer window has now closed.

"It is the same, the same squad as last season", Mourinho told Sky Sports. Jamie Vardy is less likely, as Kelechi Iheanacho has been scoring goals aplenty in pre-season.

The Toffees captured one of United's targets - Colombian defender Yerry Mina from Barcelona - as well as Portugal winger Andre Gomes from the same club and Brazilian winger Bernard who previously played for Shakhtar Donetsk. For nine days he didn't train. "There is not a story".

Now it looks like no new arrivals will be heading to Old Trafford in this window.unless Mourinho has something up his sleeve.

"I think what Jose Mourinho saw and what all of us saw in the summer was Paul Pogba smashing the middle of the France changing room, calling on the rest of the players, demanding more from them". "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.

"A lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true". I like my group. Unlike the majority of the United side, Sanchez enjoyed a full preseason and will be raring to go. "By the end of November or December, you don't need words, you'll see by then which teams are candidates to win the Premier League".
