  • Transfer Deadline Day Jose Mourinho

"I'm not confident", he said.

"Nothing will happen before the transfer window shuts?"

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift. It is time for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed.

"I focus on the players I have for the first couple of matches".


"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that". We are expecting a plethora of deals to go through today as English clubs battle to complete their final transfer business before the deadline of 5pm. "Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody", Mourinho told MUTV after his team's 1-0 friendly loss to Bayern Munich Sunday. "We look forward to continuing to work with them to make the best Premier League action available to fans in the region for the next four seasons". "They trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready". They [Manchester City] have been playing some great football.

"My view is that first of all it is hard for me to believe that we finished second when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do", the United boss said.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group [of World Cup players] because everybody is different physically and mentally to see how they feel, how they are and to understand if they think how they can help or not help".

"Like any big club, they need some silverware - in his first season at Old Trafford, 2016-17, Mourinho won two trophies - the League Cup and Europa League - but he won nothing last season".
