Klaassen played just seven Premier League games for Everton after signing for £24m last summer

Manchester United could do with two deadline day additions, says Wayne Rooney, with Jose Mourinho a couple of players away from competing for the Premier League title. 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.

Whatever the explanation, the lack of new faces compounds issues surrounding the United squad heading into the Premier League season. "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".

Liverpool FC placed in fourth spot and finished 25 points behind Manchester City, although the Reds knocked the Citizens out of the Champions League thanks to a 5-1 aggregate win in the quarter-finals.

Mourinho had warned it would be a "difficult season" if United did not make any more acquisitions and it now looks like his side will miss out.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic will all be unavailable for Friday's opener against Leicester.

'Its hard for me to believe we finished second.


"So I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see them challenging for the league this year".

"The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button", he said.

"Since nine years, every season - except the first when I arrived at Barcelona".

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said in his press conference earlier today, as per The Mirror.

Wright continued: 'Liverpool proved last season that they are City's kryptonite, beating them three times - and they've strengthened better than anyone this summer.
