Jose Mourinho tells Manchester United: Sign players or expect hard season

Jose Mourinho tells Manchester United: Sign players or expect hard season

United are set to start the season without record signing Paul Pogba, who ignored a plea from Mourinho to return from his post World Cup holiday early. "I know he tries to do the best for me, and I still have a few days to wait and see what is going to happen".

"The other clubs that compete with us are really strong or they have already fantastic squads like Chelsea, Spurs, City, or they are investing massively like for example Liverpool buying everything and everybody", Mourinho told MUTV.

The Red Devils have balked at asking prices for several world-class defenders this summer, with Tottenham Hotspur demanding £70 Million for their star defender Toby Alderwield and Leicester City placing a £65 Million tag on Harry Maguire's United jersey. It has emerged that Mourinho's awkward encounter with Woodward in the tunnel after United's final game in Miami was their first meeting of any kind on the 17-day trip.

The players were, once more, brilliant, they could not have done better than what they did.

Chelsea are interested and could offer Willian, 29, as bait - a deal that would appeal to Mourinho even if it meant Martial signing for another Premier League club.

According to Christian Falk, a reporter for German publication BILD, the Premier League side are now looking into the possibility of signing Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng. Fantastic experience for the boys.

"At the same time it was Lewandowski on Axel, Robben on Mitchell, (Leon) Goretzka on Garner and (Niklas) Sule on Chong".

'It was fantastic, absolutely fantastic.

And now, Rashford appears to have been made the club's new number 10, replacing Zlatan Ibrahimovic who gave up the jersey upon leaving for LA Galaxy in March.

Former chief executive Peter Kenyon said on Sunday he believes Mourinho needs to find a way of "working out" his issues with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
