Jose Mourinho explains why Manchester United players must improve in this area

Premier League: Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says club will curb transfer spending in future

Premier League: Big-money strikers and Rooney's Everton return - five to watch in 2017-18

Manchester United is in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about the striker playing again for the club.

But after a close-season in which both managers have invested heavily in new players, United are now Mourinho's team and City have been created by Guardiola.

"You know, in my initial analysis coming from January and progressively through the other months, I was thinking about four players", the United boss said before facing the Hammers on Sunday. "Winning everything!" the France global told Sky Sports.

In the meantime, manager Antonio Conte says his main priority is to avoid what he has saltily called "the Mourinho season" in reference to the 10th-place finish that followed Chelsea's 2015 title win.

Jamie Redknapp thinks Manchester United will be guaranteed to win the Premier League title if they sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

"It is hard to say what our chances in the league are but we are setting out to be on top", the midfielder, a five-time Premier League champion with United, said.

Mourinho later explained his decision to give away the medal, claiming it meant more to the child than to him.

"Manchester City have the best team on paper", ex-England midfielder Owen Hargreaves told the Premier League official website.

"I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75 per cent of what I asked, the club did well".


For a serial collector of trophies at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, finishing his first season in English soccer without a single title was an unusual feeling for Guardiola. All three are excellent players who can cope with the physical demands of Guardiola's system, though it's unclear whether they have the technical quality to step into central midfield like Philip Lahm and David Alaba did to such good effect at Bayern Munich. But this is modern football.

United's signings have been thoroughly in keeping with Mourinho's pragmatic approach to the game, the Portuguese having galvanised his squad with extra height and muscle.

There is no doubt that Mourinho has built a strong, powerful looking side with signings such as Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic this summer.

Morata contributed 15 LaLiga goals despite starting only 14 league games for Madrid last season and Chelsea need him to make an immediate impact, with star man Eden Hazard out for the opening weeks as he recovers from an ankle injury.

Mauricio Pochettino's men scored 47 goals at home and conceded only nine.

"I just think that he was very clear by showing that what he did a year ago was not enough for him". I've been waiting for this opportunity.

It will be a tough season ahead, but I have a feeling Brighton will survive, probably by the skin of their teeth.

"Rashford and Lukaku bring in little but of pace but they still lack a bit of pace compared to the other teams". We have confidence levels of a team that won a European competition and is back in the Champions League.

"We are Manchester United and we want to get back to being the big Manchester United".
