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

Mourinho Expects

Regarding the challenge of winning back-to-back titles, Guardiola added: "That is not the target, the target is tomorrow, then Huddersfield [on August 19] - in April, May we will see how is our level".

"I said many times, we can not spend every season what we spent last season".

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant are the three players already on the books.

Manchester City won the league 19 points ahead of their bitter rivals United last term but Mourinho feels like it was a great success when he takes into account some of the criticism he faced.

"Other teams go up and down, we want to try to win one point more than the others".

When asked if he would make a signing today, Mourinho said: "The information I have is no".

"We have only seen him when he has appeared in front of the TV cameras this summer and heard what he has told the media, and I suspect he will behave very differently on the training ground with his players".

Whatever the explanation, the lack of new faces compounds issues surrounding the United squad heading into the Premier League season.

But Leicester boss Claude Puel insists the England World Cup star won't be on the move. "Raheem and Kevin had three weeks off after the World Cup, not too much time but both arrive flawless".

"They returned on Monday", he said.

Figures released by Deloitte's sport business group showed top-flight clubs spent an estimated £1.23billion before Thursday's pre-season deadline - down £200million from last summer's window.

"The net expenditure is a record as it stands but you'd think with three weeks left for European clubs to buy Premier League players, and Premier League clubs by the looks of it not having done their selling yet, it might not stay that way".

"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.
