Jose Mourinho Tells Officials That He Wants This Frenchman SOLD

He said on Thursday that some of Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester.

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "Now it's serious stuff".

'Alexis Sánchez's contract - £391,000 a week with an extra £75,000 for every game he plays and an annual £1.1m signing-on fee - is another indication of how far United are willing to go when a category-A player is available'.

They also bought in left-back Joe Bryan from Bristol City, plus three players on loan - goalkeeper Sergio Rico from Sevilla, Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto and United's Timothy Fosu-Mensah. Clubs from other leagues are also free to bid for Premier League players.

'If they feel they can help us [against Leicester] - 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour.

Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola will be aware of the problems his exit could cause United if he leaves after the deadline, with the club unable to replace his midfield quality.

"If he goes the opposite way and things don't go well and he keeps moaning and groaning, I would be disappointed if they didn't just pull the rug from under his feet and say, "this isn't looking good, we've had enough of you, get out of here". "He didn't have nine days of preseason where no training, no football, absolutely nothing". He's in the group of players who didn't have a pre season, it's as simple as that.

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of the people is that it's true but it's still a lie". For nine days he didn't train, so he's to start again.

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation.

"Any point can be crucial - you don't know what is going to happen at the end of the season". Bang, I want him, he's coming. They trained on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine that they're not really fit and ready, but we have needs.
