Pogba becoming increasingly frustrated at Manchester United

Spurs suffer heavy defeat to Girona in final pre-season game

Spurs suffer heavy defeat to Girona in final pre-season game

United kick off the Premier League season at home to Leicester City on Friday and Mourinho took the opportunity at his pre-match news conference to take a swipe at both the perceived negative coverage of his tenure and praise given to unnamed counterparts who fail to lift major honours.

The Portuguese faced criticism of his methods in 2017-18, with the Red Devils considered to have adopted a defensive mindset as they ended the campaign empty-handed. The 23-year-old Frenchman had been linked with Manchester United on Wednesday evening but now Everton are said to have agreed a loan deal and have until 7pm to finalise the move. Yet, despite rumours claiming United were interested, the move never happened.

Manchester United are going to make three signings on deadline day, according to former defender Gary Neville.

In contrast to Newcastle v Tottenham, Sunday's clash between Liverpool and West Ham sees two of the busiest clubs in the transfer market go head-to-head.

Spurs, who are preparing to move into their new £850m stadium for the new season, have yet to sign any players in the current transfer window.

Interest from Barcelona means that he may not be a Manchester United player for much longer, but his contributions to the club should not be underestimated.

Now Boateng has ended the transfer hopes of the Red Devils before even the window closes on Thursday.

'But looking at the squad Jurgen Klopp has assembled, I will be amazed if Liverpool don't push them very, very close.

In spite of the Maguire's heroics at the World Cup for England, many fans believe that Mourinho will be overpaying for his man, especially since Alderweireld is set to cost less.

Mourinho's targets for that position were primarily Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Jérôme Boateng of Bayern Munich and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth a year ago, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group [of World Cup players] because everybody is different physically and mentally to see how they feel, how they are and to understand if they think how they can help or not help".

Last season's runaway champions provide the opposition at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal begin a season without Frenchman Arsene Wenger in the dugout for the first time since 1996.

"It is hard to believe that we finished second".

Unai Emery has enjoyed the luxury of having most of his squad available for pre-season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette forming a fearsome front four.
