Manchester United need Alexis Sanchez to fire when they kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester City on Friday as they seek to put a troubled pre-season behind them.

The transfer window closed on Thursday with United failing to add to their three summer signings - Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.

Chelsea shattered the world record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (£71.6 million, $92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian worldwide Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champions Real Madrid. The 23-year-old Mina, a Colombia defender, cost €31 million (A$48.43 million), while 25-year-old Portugal midfielder Gomes moved to Goodison Park on a season-long loan.

The Mancunian giants are said to have opened talks with Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.

"Martial didn't have a preseason", said Mourinho.

Mourinho spent £68 million to bring in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant this summer but admitted during the preseason tour of the USA he wanted two more additions.

A disgruntled Manchester United fan has started a GoFundMe account, hoping to raise the £30 Million (NZ $57m) required to sack manager, Jose Mourinho. Alisson, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri were all signed while Naby Keïta completed his move to Anfield a year after an agreement was reached with RB Leipzig.

I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions League and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday-to-Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City.

Australian teenager Daniel Arzani joined the English champions from sister club Melbourne City on Thursday but is expected to be sent on loan to Celtic.

Wolves' connections to Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes were a source of complaint for their competitors as they romped to the Championship title last season.

Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December 2015 with the then-Premier League champions languishing in 16th, just one point above the relegation places.

Former Paris Saint-Germain boss Emery appears willing to let chief scout Sven Mislintat, director of football Raul Sanllehi and chief executive Ivan Gazidis call the transfer shots and that trio have made a series of cut-price deals for Matteo Guendouzi, Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner.

After failing to net at Euro 2016, the Spurs forward did a whole lot better at this year's World Cup and walked away with the golden boot having scored six times.

A club-record fee of 20 million pounds was also splashed on powerful Spanish winger Adama Traore and versatile Belgian global Leander Dendoncker was snapped up from Anderlecht.
