When asked whether he expected to welcome a fresh additions to his United squad, Mourinho offered these comments: "The information I have is no".

"I don't think just because they haven't signed a centre-back we should be sat here thinking 'we'll let Manchester United off the hook they shouldn't be challenging this year.' A club thats spent the money they've spent in the past few seasons and the players they've got". 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.

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. Manchester United will open the league campaign at home as they will host Leicester City.

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.

"So it's 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 in relation to this first couple of matches".

'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season.

A 4-1 defeat followed at the hands of Premier League rivals Liverpool before a win against Champions League winners Real Madrid, followed by a second loss to Bayern Munich. Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are all unavailable due to injury.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite".

"They returned on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said.

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

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel they". I told that during pre-season. 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. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
