Jose Mourinho furious over centre-back hunt

Manchester United vs Leicester City

Manchester United Vs Leicester City Match Preview: Team News, Predicted Line-Up And Stats

Earlier this week, Sanchez had urged the Red Devils to make big signings if they wanted to compete with their rivals this season. "It just seems with Mourinho that it's had an impact on him", he told Sky Sports News.

"The players with a proper pre-season are fit and they are strong".

"It beggars belief. There can only be a couple of things here, either Ed Woodward is so inept in this part of the job where David Gill the former chief executive was pretty good and had a good relationship with [Sir Alex] Ferguson". The team has World Cup victor Paul Pogba leading the midfield, and Belgium star Romelu Lukaku manning the attack with Alexis Sanchez.

And Barca are set to step up their pursuit of Pog, 25, before the La Liga window closes on August 31.

"This is Man United", said Merson.

The Chile worldwide pockets a huge £400,000 each week, while Pogba settles for a handsome £250,000.

A busy conclusion to the Premier League transfer window continued as Chelsea signed Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic on a season-long loan deal, but Jose Mourinho does not expect Manchester United to make any further additions.

Other evacuees said they were subsisting on a diet of instant noodles and needed clean water and bedding. Officials said the epicenter of the aftershock was on land and so there was no risk of a tsunami.

The Red Devils have been extremely light in the transfer window.

And now it has emerged Varane was also spoken about in the corridors of power at United.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of the Premier League opener between Manchester United and Leicester on Friday, Mourinho was in a defensive mood about the criticism his United team got for finishing behind a massive 19 points behind Pep Guardiola's record-breaking City side.

United were linked with Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng and even a deadline day move for Diego Godin, but ultimately failed to bring in a new centre-back.

And Sherwood is adamant that Mourinho needs to try and send out a "positive vibe".

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation.

"Unavailable is [Sergio] Romero - he had a surgery after his injury before the World Cup". I'm going to enjoy this season.
