Jose Mourinho Second with Manchester United among my biggest achievements

United are under pressure after five seasons without a league title and have only added Brazilian midfielder Fred, Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant to their squad in the close season.

The United boss and his coaching star fear the Italian is not acting in Pogba's best interest as another big-money move would see him pocket millions of pounds in fees.

The Chilean global cited Spanish side Barcelona who signed Vidal from Bayern Munich in the close season.

It is said United's conclusion was that Mourinho had chosen players no better than those he already has, yet could easily have cost £70m or more in a badly warped transfer market. Along with the new signings, nearly 9 players have left the club with key player Riyadh Mahrez joining reigning champions Manchester City, Robert Huth being released and record signing Ahmed Musa leaving for Al-Nassr to name a few.

In reality an intermediary had contacted United a few days earlier asking whether they would be interested in the experienced 32-year-old.

United contacted Atletico Madrid about Diego Godin but it quickly became evident that the move was a no-go, while an official offer was not made for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld. He likes to paint pictures, I'm painting a picture as, you need to work with what you have now.

"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.

Another line in the Guardian says "Yet the club have had to balance the manager's wishes, and the permanent battle to keep him happy, by taking into account Mourinho is notorious for wanting short-term measures, rarely stays too long at any club and does not tend to worry about what happens when he leaves". I'm going to enjoy this season.

Last week he had said he was confident of getting one but the stark reality was the club were unable to do the deals he required. So first and foremost, United's only goal should be trying to be very competitive in the Champions League and dominating English football again.

"Over a year ago now they chases Ivan Perisic".

"Twelve months ago they were unprepared to do that deal, it beggars belief". Craig Burley speculates about whether Jose Mourinho is being driven out of Old Trafford.
