Manchester United vs Leicester City

10 August 2018

Manchester United reportedly wanted to sign Rafael Varane.

Fresh from a well-deserved break after winning the World Cup with France, Pogba has linked up again with his United team-mates at the Aon Training Complex this week.

Mourinho's blatant plea came amidst a groundswell of anger at the antics of the Man United board.

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

"They need to get a centre-back in".

Everton secured the services of Colombian World Cup star Yerry Mina from Barcelona on an unusually quiet deadline day in the English Premier League as Manchester United failed to satisfy manager Jose Mourinho's desire to sign a centre-back.

In reality an intermediary had contacted United a few days earlier asking whether they would be interested in the experienced 32-year-old.

A new season begins tomorrow with Manchester United looking to catch up to neighbours City.

Harry Maguire was a genuine target, and although no progress was ever made with Leicester, United are still admirers of the England player.

How Mourinho reacts from now will be dictated to some extent by results, but the key objectives at the turn of the year have all been fulfilled as far as the club are concerned. The boss explained that the midfielder is one of several players he will hold talks with to determine if they're able to contribute to the cause in Friday's opening game. I'm sure United would've known of him, certainly Mourinho I imagine would have known of him as well.

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight. It gives us a couple of weeks to recover people and to prepare people better and to focus on the players that are available, so I'm not even thinking about that list of players I gave you - Matic, Valencia and so on.

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website).

"It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different".
