Mourinho: Not Confident About Deadline Day Signings at Manchester United

Pogba, 25, signed for United for a then-world record fee of £89.3 million in 2016 and helped the club in the Europa League in his first season back at the club.

The team has World Cup victor Paul Pogba leading the midfield, and Belgium star Romelu Lukaku manning the attack with Alexis Sanchez. They seem to have learned not to sign players whom Bayern Munich are ready to offload after the Bastian Schweinsteiger failure.

Links to World Cup star Harry Maguire persist, but Leicester's reluctance to sell is clear with the deadline looming large.

Mourinho, ahead of tonight's season kickoff against Leicester City, said: "Paul arrived back on Monday - happy, proud, with a desire to work".

"He worked amazingly well Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday".

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

Speaking at Carrington, Mourinho said: "If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, ten minutes half an hour..."

"Maybe we didn't deserve more for many reasons, but of course to compete at that level and challenge the big sides that are only focused on improving their teams, while the reality for us has been improving our facilities - building the training ground and new stadium - I think it is not fair to compare us with these kinds of clubs, that are only focused on improving their squads".

"I believe in the way that we work and I have no doubt we will be competitive, with or without signings".

Pressed on whether there would be incomings or outgoings at Old Trafford, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no". But Mourinho now says he is focusing on the players already at his disposal.

Jimenez got on the scoresheet at Molineux on Saturday where Wolves beat Spanish outfit Villarreal 2-1 in their last pre-season friendly.

"You try to make a case and there is no case in it".

With the start of the Premier League season just days away, the FC panel assess how Tottenham's lack of transfer activity will affect their top-four chances. "There is not a story".

However, Eurosport understand from reliable sources close to the club that Pogba has not made any financial demands to the club.

And the Old Trafford boss angrily hit back at accusations he has fallen out with his squad.

"I have my players and I like my players". One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie but the perception of people is that it's true.

"When you repeat 1000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, a lie repeated 1000 times is still a lie".

He said: "I like my players and my group".
