Jose Mourinho was stopped from signing Chelsea star by club chiefs

And in this of all seasons, as that World Cup semi-final casts a rosy glow on the Premier League.

The news comes from his twitter portal as the Red Devils prepare to receive offers from Ernesto Valverde's men for their World Cup victor ahead of a possible move to Camp Nou.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed he will be without at least six players for the start of the Premier League season. Plus, the players who featured until the end of the 2018 FIFA World Cup are not playing, either.

Added to that is the fact that they have been able to keep ahold of 18-year-old wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon - who scored 15 Championship goals last season - and Fulham look like a side more than capable of competing in the top half of the division. "Dalot, we knew he had a surgery on his meniscus and we have to wait a couple of months before he is ready".

"I see a good stable team, not anymore the team which has been promoted to the Premier League". They ultimately stormed the Championship, finishing with 99 points and took the title home. I don't think they can challenge on both fronts with the way they play, unless they adapt and they change: the way they play at 100 miles an hour from the first minute to the last minute, it's very hard to do that Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday-Wednesday. The way in which United are being talked about this pre-season, it's as if they've got a load of bums playing for them.

With the tactical prowess of Emery in sharp contrast to Arsene Wenger, his successor, you can expect the Gunners not to shy away from taking the game to Guardiola's men.

Mourinho said 10 days ago he was "confident" of getting one new arrival before the close of the transfer window and United have been working to bring in a centre-back but, so far, those efforts have proved fruitless. "I am pretty sure that every one of the managers would love to have, let's say, one more week before the Premier League starts, but it is what it is and we have to face the reality".

Jorginho was Chelsea's first close-season signing as the Italy midfielder followed Sarri from Napoli in a £57-million deal. What panics me a little bit with Manchester United is just they're short in one or two areas, of course they are, but now it looks like they've got three or four players and they're going round the block now with it.

Which players are Manchester United most likely to sell and sign this summer, according to 888sport? 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.
