Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho looks set to miss out on a centre back

"I think what Jose Mourinho saw and what all of us saw in the summer was Paul Pogba smashing the middle of the France changing room, calling on the rest of the players, demanding more from them".

"Of course, we have second or third choice in case he is not confident or some reason doesn't want to take it but he was ready and of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup because it's something in a competition like that every player trains a lot and he was vert confident".

It's reported by The Sun that United were actually prepared to shell out £100m for French World Cup victor Varane, but Real Madrid were not interested in selling.

'The manager puts names out, after that it is how we feel, ' he said. I needed more changes, but I couldn't so it was not easy to manage the game from the touchline point of view.

"Fantastic spirit and I think periods of very good football and in the periods where Leicester were stronger we played as a team and we coped well with the situation".

The 2018-19 Premier League season began on Friday with a single match.
