Sources have told ESPN FC that United are interested in central defenders Jerome Boateng, Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina but Mourinho - who has said the season could be "difficult" if the squad is not bolstered - admitted at a news conference on Thursday he is not expecting any new arrivals.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is "not confident" he will get any new signings before the transfer deadline.

On the eve of the new season, which starts with United's clash against Leicester, Mourinho also claimed that finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, was "one of the greatest achievements" of his career.

Thursday's deadline passed without Spurs signing any new players, either permanently or on loan, so coach Mauricio Pochettino will open the club's new stadium with the same squad that finished third in the Premier League in May. "I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".

Pochettino does accept how the lack of activity might be viewed externally, but is happy with the club's vision.


"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".

"I asked Pep directly, Premier League or Champions League?"

Liverpool spent big over the summer, bringing in quality in the likes of Fabinho, Naby Keita and Alisson but despite this Neville still believes that Guardiola's City are intent on achieving "greatness" starting with retaining their crown this season. The £31-million fee for Courtois was immediately reinvested in Spain global Kepa Arrizabalaga, who arrived from Athletic Bilbao for £72.1 million - a world record for a keeper.

Real Madrid was already pursuing the Belgium goalkeeper before striking the 35 million euro fee with Chelsea.

'Its hard for me to believe we finished second. 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.
