Jose Mourinho hits back at critics

The transfer market can be a chaotic but occasionally rather predictable place The transfer market can be a chaotic but occasionally rather predictable place

"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".

He has spent almost £70m to bring in Fred, Dalot and Grant this summer but only considers Fred an automatic starter and has been keen to boost his first XI with a central defender and a right winger.

Manchester United's hopes of reinforcing their squad before Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline appear to be over after José Mourinho said his latest information was that the club had been unable to secure any of their targets.

Manchester United will kick off the new Premier League season when they take on Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.

Tribune backs out of $3.9 billion buyout by Sinclair
Sinclair already has 173 stations around the country, including KENV in Salt Lake City, KOMO in Seattle and WKRC in Cincinnati. Sinclair is the nation's largest local broadcaster, reaching about 4 in 10 USA households through TV stations.

"I'm not confident", Mourinho said, when asked whether there would be more players arriving before the deadline.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United thought they were making headway around two weeks ago only for preliminary talks to stall before they were in a position to make an official bid.

Mourinho also suggested he had not been given enough credit for guiding United to a runners-up finish in the Premier League last season, as he again suggested the negativity around the club was misplaced.

Obviously turning the loan deal of Aleksandar Mitrovic into a permanent signing is a big plus given he already has experience of English football and indeed the Premier League, but also signing Alfie Mawson from Swansea, and former Chelsea man Andre Schurrle, are very eyecatching transfers.

Man United prepare ‘huge’ bid to sign 23-year-old
But Lazio president Claudio Lotito has now told United they must spend big if they are to secure the player's signature. That's the opinion of expert Ian McGarry who believes the Serbian would be an ideal replacement for Paul Pogba .

Is not an opportunity, is a match, an important match, we would prefer to have a couple more days but decision was to be first to play and that's it. To finish 11th last season after losing their first seven games was a terrific achievement, and I fancy they'll improve on that this campaign. Mourinho also has selection problems for the Leicester game, with Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and Dalot ruled out because of injuries and Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini not considered fully fit after being given extra time off to recover from the World Cup.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

And while those players are all now back in training, with Lukaku, Rashford and Jones having returned earlier than scheduled, Mourinho has admitted he will still be without a number of key players against Leicester.

"In Championship Manager you can just press a button", he stated.

The Magpies have endured a torrid pre-season, on and off the pitch. You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.
