United voted against the early closing of the transfer window when it was put to the Premier League a year ago and feel that decision has been vindicated by the prices being quoted to them by European clubs trying to take advantage of the situation.

"We have only seen him when he has appeared in front of the TV cameras this summer and heard what he has told the media, and I suspect he will behave very differently on the training ground with his players".

According to a UK Daily Mail report, the Frenchman has also informed club mates and backroom staff that he wants to quit the Old Trafford outfit two seasons after completing a then world record £89million switch from Juventus.

But I hope someone can catch them - it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can.


Jose Mourinho is "desperate" for Manchester United to get off to a winning start in the Premier League curtain-raiser on Friday night, despite bemoaning a lack of preparation time.

"The target is the Leicester match", said the United manager.

Asked at a news conference on Thursday whether he had the squad to go head-to-head with Manchester City for the title, Mourinho refused to answer one way or the other.

"I said that during pre-season - it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane - but I repeat, pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work with". They [Manchester City] have been playing some great football.


"But it's the same conversation as with [Ashley] Young, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Jesse] Lingard, it's the same". "I like to work with my players".

Speaking at Carrington, Mourinho said: "If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, ten minutes half an hour..."

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today, so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed", Mourinho said. "When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1,000 times".
