Transfer Deadline Day Real Madrid

The Red Devils were the closest challengers to record-breaking rivals Manchester City in 2017-18, but still finished some 19 points off the pace. Ivan Perisic, the Croatia worldwide, also featured prominently on Mourinho's wish list but it now seems that United's summer transfer business will be restricted to the arrivals of Fred, the injured Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, signed from Stoke City as a third-choice goalkeeper.

The Daily Mail says he kept his cool in front of the media ahead of Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester, but privately he was said to be angry and frustrated. "I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed, so I will have to focus on the players I have". As it stands, Alderweireld and Maguire are considered too expensive, while Bayern Munich have knocked back a loan move for Boateng.

"I am so happy with the team and, from last season, I said maybe one more player, maybe two".

"I said many times, we can not spend every season what we spent last season".

beIN Sports has extended its contract with the Premier League for another three years.

"We have only seen him when he has appeared in front of the TV cameras this summer and heard what he has told the media, and I suspect he will behave very differently on the training ground with his players".

Sergio Romero, Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Matic are all injured for Leicester's visit, while Mourinho needs to check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup.

The Portuguese believes runners-up are often portrayed as if they have been relegated and those who finish below them are presented as "serial winners".

"My view is that it is hard for me to believe that we finished second", he said.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second. He had a good pre-season".

"But I keep saying and thinking and feeling that the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".
