Alexis Sanchez: Man Utd's objective must be to win trophies in 2018/19

Man Utd transfer news United Maguire Alderweireld

Mourinho had been desperate to add a defender to his squad before the Premier League kick-off against Leicester at Old Trafford on Friday but proposed deals for Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin never materialised.

"The theatre of dreams has become the theatre of nightmares and a place were people do dream but only because they have fallen asleep watching united".

And while those players are all now back in training, with Lukaku, Rashford and Jones having returned earlier than scheduled, Mourinho has admitted he will still be without a number of key players against Leicester.

"He's a wonderful player", Courtois said of his compatriot at his press conference. He's in the group of players who didn't have a pre season, it's as simple as that.

Martin Fisher: Jose Mourinho rarely smiled last season and his expression hasn't changed after a summer of frustration.

"When you repeat 1000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, a lie repeated 1000 times is still a lie". You can not expect them to be fit. He worked amazingly well on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

"He had nine days of pre-season where no training, no football, absolutely nothing".

The Sun reports that United were prepared to spend £100m on the World Cup-winning Frenchman, but Real were not willing to part with him. [Nemanja] Matic - injured in the World Cup and surgery in Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago.

"I don't think Jose Mourinho's outbursts are him, I think it's at the Ed Woodward situation".

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline, but an inflated market has made the challenge of improving defensively an even tougher ask.

"After Spurs there is an global break". "If it is not possible, we will continue fighting, working and believing in those we have". If it's not going well, though, I don't want to hear the moaning and groaning and I am sure the United fans don't want to hear it as well.

"Lets get back to the United style of play".

The Red Devils have won the FA Cup, the Europa League and the League Cup since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement. "By the end of November or December, you don't need words, you'll see by then which teams are candidates to win the Premier League".
