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

Alderweireld

Having signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, the Portuguese hoped to bring in two more players but would have been satisfied with just one.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today, so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed", Mourinho said.

"I think the early closing of the window appears to have made clubs more reticent to sell players to other clubs in the Premier League", Bridge told Press Association Sport.

Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club since the summer transfer window began to fail to sign a single player but Mauricio Pochettino said he was happy for the club to "behave differently".

However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season.

Manchester United open talks with Chelsea for defender
And Kurt Zouma could still join him on Merseyside, even though the transfer window slammed shut at 5:00pm on Thursday. Manchester United need a defensive upgrade on the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones and Zouma is certainly that.

Despite the drop in the gross figure, the net spend by Premier League clubs to this point is a record £865m - inflated by a busy deadline day for the likes of Fulham, with five signings, and Everton whose additions included Barcelona pair Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

Unai Emery will make his Premier League debut in Sunday's clash, and the former Bayern Munich coach has praised the new Arsenal coach following their battles in LaLiga. "They trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready". It is widely expected that consumer demand to watch the world's best football talent competing in the Premier League, which includes some of the best players of countries in MENA, will only continue to grow further as the next FIFA World Cup - the first ever to be held in the region in Qatar 2022 - draws closer.

"Because it is very important how they feel and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

Pre-season has clearly been a frustrating time for Mourinho, while a perceived lack of respect for leading his side to second spot last term has got under his skin.

"It is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying".
