Manchester United Star Lands Huge Blow On Jose Mourinho

Manchester United Star Lands Huge Blow On Jose Mourinho

United start their Premier League campaign on Friday at Leicester and, speaking on Sunday, Mourinho said: "My CEO knows what I want and I still have a few days to wait and see what happens".

September always seem to be the month when the Tottenham academy graduate gets off the mark, but once the World Cup had finished, he revealed his desire to change that. I'd prefer to look to the bench and to have them rather than to have 16-year-old boys without experience and without the power to be Premier League player directly. Pochettino is adamant Tottenham's lack of transfer activity isn't a problem because it was just as important to hold onto the club's key players.

"Lets get back to the United style of play".

"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States. "Sure we are going to be better, no doubt about that".

Fresh from a well-deserved break after winning the World Cup with France, Pogba has linked up again with his United team-mates at the Aon Training Complex this week. 'When I listen, when I read, it's hard to believe we finished second because you are capable of making people who finish second (sound like we) were relegated.

"I think this was a chance that we didn't want to lose and we made it".

Manchester United lost their hope to sign the Belgian after the initial disagreement but now reached an agreement to sign the player but only after Tottenham is able to secure the replacement.

The Foxes, though, are in advanced talks to sign two centre-backs - Filip Benkovic from Dinamo Zagreb and Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg - at a combined cost of about £35m.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth previous year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.

Spending £52m on Brazil midfielder Fred, 25, proved they are not afraid to splash the cash but it will only be for the players they feel have a long-term future at Old Trafford.

Clive Allen's record of 49 from the 1986/87 term remains the best ever while Jimmy Greaves (62/63) and Martin Chivers (71/72) both struck 42 during seasons in N17.
