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

"I think we are not going to make any more signings", Guardiola said on Sky Sports.

United have endured a hard summer transfer window as they have tried and failed to sign a host of defensive targets, with Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Leicester's Harry Maguire among the names on their wish-list.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Leicester's light World Cup recovery list: "When I look to Leicester, if I am not wrong, only Maguire and Vardy were in the World Cup, the final phase, because [Kasper] Schmeichel was, but back sooner".

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better".

He said in pre-match press conference ahead of his sides Premier League opener against Leicester City tomorrow night.

What the managers sayManager Jose Mourinho of Manchester United watches from the touchline during the pre-season friendly match against Bayern Munich.

"My view is that first of all it is hard for me to believe we finished second", said Mourinho ahead of his side's Premier League opener against Leicester. 'When I listen, when I read, it's hard to believe we finished second because you are capable of making people who finish second (sound like we) were relegated.

"I can understand some speculation about our player because he has good attributes, but I am happy to keep him and hopefully start a great season".

Mourinho, who will be without the likes of Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo on Friday, once again bemoaned the lack of preparation time for the start of the season, with many of his players having just returned to training after taking time off following the World Cup.
