Mourinho 'angry and frustrated' after Man Utd centre-half signing flop

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says he is happy with his squad

Manchester United Jose Mourinho

He wanted many more, as he pointed out numerous times on United's preseason tour, but as deadline day rumbled on there was still no news.

United have made it clear they are not interested in selling Pogba, however, and as long as the player shows no signs of being unhappy, they will not consider any bid for him.

Manchester United started the window showing real intent: the purchase of Brazil midfielder Fred set pulses racing, but the subsequent buys of Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant meant that their business, upon the close of the window, was largely poor.

After the United goal though it was mostly one-way traffic for the visiting side, with David De Gea repeatedly called into action including a miraculous save on a James Maddison shot that should have drawn Leicester level.

"I said that during preseason and it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat: Preseason is hard when you don't have your players to work, that's as simple as that". Pressed on whether there would be incomings or outgoings at Old Trafford, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no". Even though we have improved a lot, we need to keep improving.

Harry Maguire, who could face United for Leicester today, Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham Hotspur were all linked with United, while Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin emerged as a late target yesterday.


"I have my players and I like my players", Mourinho said. He's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels.

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of the people is that it's true but it's still a lie".

Chelsea let the Serbian defensive midfielder leave for £35m last summer - and he enjoyed a remarkably consistent debut season at Old Trafford. Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say.

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have not given up on signing Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, according to reports coming out of Spain.

Jose Mourinho is "desperate" for Manchester United to get off to a winning start in the Premier League curtain-raiser on Friday night, despite bemoaning a lack of preparation time. United may not have played sparkling attacking football, but they were solid at the back with Bailly especially impressive.
