Mourinho Expects "No" Players To Sign For Manchester United Today


So as per the current information, only two Arsenal players are confirmed to miss the season opening match against Manchester City. Crucially, Chelsea have so far staved off interest from Real and Barcelona in Eden Hazard and Willian.

Pochettino decided keeping players was the priority after a third successive top-three finish.

Jean Michael Seri was a transfer target for Barcelona just 12 months ago, but will now be lining up at Craven Cottage rather than the Non Camp along with former Nice team-mate Maxime Le Marchand, German World Cup victor Andre Schurrle and Alfie Mawson, who earned an England call-up earlier in the year.

"Back home with the two stars", the midfielder wrote, presumably referring to the second World Cup title he helped France lift this summer.

Tottenham provided the most players to the World Cup semi-finalists, but strong performances in Russian Federation were not a necessity when it came to Premier League clubs deciding whether to spend the fruits of soccer's biggest television contracts.

After an insignificant transfer window, during which Mourinho roped in only three new acquisitions in Lee Grant, Fred and Diogo Dalot, Manchester United lacked options for their midfield sector. The France World Cup victor did captain United on Friday and netted a penalty in the 2-1 victory over Leicester.

Earlier, the United States had issued an advisory, asking its citizens not to visit Kerala because of the flash floods. The water is flowing 3 feet below the Cheruthoni bridge. "The flood has caused large-scale damage across the state".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he is relaxed about his team being Premier League title favourites once again.

Players can still leave the Premier League before the end of this month but no-one can now come in.

Chelsea became favourite to land the CSKA Moscow midfielder as Sarri wanted to overhaul his midfield, the club quickly began the process to sign the player and an agreement had been reached with the club.

The transfer window closed to English clubs on Thursday, but they are still allowed to sell players to clubs from other countries until the end of the month.

Of the players transferred-in, just £175m (14%) relate to intra-Premier League transfers, a record low proportion across the history of the summer transfer window.

"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".
