Manchester United transfer woes summed up by Gary Neville's old tweet

Premier League title hopefuls Manchester United have to sign experienced players like Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal if they are to win trophies, forward Alexis Sanchez has said. He said on Thursday that some of Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester.

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot. We played very well, the performance was OK. "There is something going on behind the scenes and I don't think Woodward is helping Mourinho as much as we really think".

Both United and Leicester are "unlucky", Mourinho says, as they kick off the new 2018/19 campaign ahead of the rest of the opening Premier League weekend fixtures.

"It's the best feeling I have had in my career". It's the last time I speak about it. "I'd prefer to have them even if they are not top, top, top".

Shaw's first touch from a Sanchez cross took a fortuitous bounce around Leicester's Ricardo Pereira, and the former Southampton defender pounced and fired a shot past Kasper Schmeichel to score.

"If I was an owner I'd be thinking you've had a lot of money for these players, you certainly don't fancy them and now you want a lot of money for someone else".

Shaw wasn't positive his goal meant he'd remain a first-choice starter for Mourinho, but he said he's set his sights high.

Sources have told ESPN FC the 55-year-old wanted a centre-back and a right winger but nothing materialised in the final weeks of the window.

His inability to truly imprint his influence on the match was illustrated, more than anything else, by the fact that the Chilean gave away possession more than any other Manchester United player on the night.

It leaves Mourinho to start the season with a squad broadly similar to the one which finished 19 points behind City last season, but he insists he is not as disappointed with options as some may think. "I hope I can work with him again someday".
