"When I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - it is hard to believe that we finished second", Jose said, "because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing and finish below us look like serial winners".

"If you are a united fan like me and can no longer stand this dreary, defensive boring style of play then please donate".

There was no shortage of names being considered by Jose Mourinho yet very few deals came to fruition and the Portuguese manager was left deflated heading into Deadline Day. "He is an example of the type of players we need to sign to win trophies and compete at the highest level", Sanchez said. "I like to work with my players".

"I'm going to enjoy this season".

His performance at the 2018 World Cup for France though only confirmed of his standing as one of the top talents in the world at his position, which garnered him plenty of interest this summer during the transfer window.

Manchester United host Leicester City on Friday night in the Premier League's curtain raising clash of the 2018/19 clash. But Mourinho now says he is focusing on the players already at his disposal. "Leicester have players in their side who can do some damage". For nine days he didn't train, so he's to start again.

Pogba, meanwhile, could be on the bench against Leicester despite only training for four days since arriving back in Manchester following his triumph with France in Russian Federation.

"This list of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players because everybody is different - physically and mentally - and to see how available they feel they are because their feeling is very important and understanding how they think they can help or not help".

"But it's the same conversation as with [Ashley] Young, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Jesse] Lingard, it's the same".

"If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour".

There have been many conflicting opinions from so called "club insiders" and "in the know" journalists about the potential of Alderweireld's deal still being a goer.
