Jose Mourinho: Man Utd boss 'not confident' of deadline day signing

Manchester City’s UK£50m Puma deal to cover all City Football Group clubs

Man United got their campaign off to a great start by beating a unsafe Leicester City side 2-1 at Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba scoring a third-minute penalty and Luke Shaw bagging his first career goal late on.

"I think the fixtures which have come out for them, and the way it has worked, will give them every opportunity to be there".

Mourinho warned that United would face a "difficult season" if they did not strengthen before the window shuts, with centre-back an area that they had been keen to improve.

"Last season was fantastic!" No one fancied us to go up and it's always nice to prove people wrong.

Other major European leagues have the rest of the month to complete their business, which is part of the reason why United voted against an early end to the Premier League window.

Cardiff have spent a fair bit themselves, £41 million in total, but they have their work cut out to stay in the league, having kept much of the squad that many didn't deem good enough for promotion from the Championship. But there isn't just one team.

As the peaceful protests, conducted predominantly by black athletes, expanded, Trump began lashing out, criticising the kneeling as "disgraceful".

But United are even more shorthanded by the quick turnaround between the World Cup and the start of the new season.

Now United fans will hope that from Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester onwards, he has a similar impact - indeed, that he helps them reach for the stars. While Thibaut Courtios-less Chelsea fresh from their Community Shield loss against City impressed new boss Maurizio Sarri with a 3-0 victory away at Huddersfield with Italian mid-fielder scoring from the spot on his premier league debut.

Newcastle finally got a player on deadline day with Federico Fernandez joining Rafa Benitez's squad, just as Leicester City signed Freiburg's Caglar Soyuncu after tying striker Jamie Vardy to a new four-year deal. He is a boy I took last season from Brazil and we did everything to bring him to this club too.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

Jurgen Klopp has already insisted that Manchester City are by far favourites to win the Premier League again this season.
