Why Man United's Hierarchy Vetoed Jose Mourinho's Targets

Manchester United Paul Pogba Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will not join Barcelona

"I will focus on the players that are available, so I am not even thinking about that list of injured players I gave you, (Nemanja) Matic, (Antonio) Valencia and so on".

'I am not confident, ' Mourinho (below) said of United's chance of new signings yesterday morning.

It is for these reasons that Mourinho was understandably frustrated by the club not bringing in any new central defenders during the summer transfer window.

"I have my players and I like my players", Mourinho said. On the other hand, a couple of their big names were linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

The Ivorian worldwide was signed by Mourinho for £30m in 2016 and fans consider him to be the best centre-back at the club. The World Cup-winning midfielder reportedly informed the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward via text that he intends to leave the club following a rejected approach from Barcelona.

Leicester City reportedly wanted close to £75m and, despite Mourinho's protests, the Man United chiefs elected to pass.

And for what it's worth, we just can't wait to see what awesome upgrades Barry is going to get with his season 5 suit. After the photo was leaked, some fans got really nasty about how it looked, and more over, how he looked in the suit.

The Ecuadorian wing-back, who recently turned 33, has been one of the most reliable players during Mourinho's two-year reign in Manchester.

The youngster has only three Leicester goals to his name since signing a year ago, and a goal could boost the confidence of the mercurial attacker. Marcos Rojo - he was injured in the World Cup.

He's the only summer signing expected to be an important member of the first team.

After a brilliant World Cup, Perisic is now worth nearly double that figure.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer.

Mourinho's comments seem a stark contrast to those which he reverberated during his side's pre-season tour of America - where he seemingly ruled out any chance of the younger members of his squad breaking into the first team during the upcoming campaign, insisted Anthony Martial should have spent less time with his newborn child and slammed fans for paying money to watch Manchester United play overseas.
