Manchester United vs Leicester City

The Transfer Window ™ is shut, slammed close, etc. Manchester United signed just two players to strengthen their first team squad this summer, with youngster Diogo Dalot joining Fred, while Lee Grant signed to provide back up as a senior goalkeeper.

Mourinho spent £68 million to bring in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant this summer but admitted during the preseason tour of the US he wanted two more additions.

The likes of Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng, Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Tottenham's Toby Aldewireld were all viewed as too risky and expensive by the board.

But they were unable to secure any deadline day deals and, as a result, Mourinho admits he will be working with essentially the "same squad" this season. "You will see which teams are candidates".

'It's the same squad.

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 performance at the 2018 World Cup for France though only confirmed of his standing as one of the top talents in the world at his position, which garnered him plenty of interest this summer during the transfer window.

For all of their attacking and goalkeeping talents, however, most football fans can agree that United's defence needed reinforcing this summer. You accept or you don't accept'.

The 2018/19 English Premier League will kick-off tonight with 20-time English Premier League winners Manchester United facing 2015 Premier League winners Leicester City in the Theatre of Dreams in Manchester.

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho. 'He's a typical Brazilian player with a very rich luggage of technical skill and beauty. "He's a player to really enjoy, if he adapts as soon as possible".

United will start their Premier League campaign against Leicester at Old Trafford on Friday night. Clubs from other leagues are also free to bid for Premier League players. As you can imagine my players worked during pre-season so our evolution as a team, evolution in our style of play has to be done in the competition, during the competition and during the spaces we are going to have in between matches.

"When I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - it is hard to believe that we finished second", Jose said, "because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing and finish below us look like serial winners".
