Man United to start season at disadvantage says Mourinho

Paul Pogba

The 25-year-old will be a welcome addition to United's midfield this season following the departure of Michael Carrick, but Mourinho believes he will bring some creativity and flair to the centre of the park - and something different to the long-serving midfielder.

The Portuguese stayed silent when pressed to explain why.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he wants two more players before the transfer window shuts but admits he may not get them.

The £47m spent on midfielder Fred has been their biggest outlay of the summer.

Manchester United coach José Mourinho wants Paul Pogba to play at the same level for Manchester United that he did for France during the World Cup.

Mourinho has been in a downbeat mood ever since his side touched down Stateside, due to being without a huge amount of first-team regulars, who are now on holiday after their exploits at this summers World Cup in Russian Federation.

Reports: Manchester United Ready To Spend £50m+ On Harry Maguire

The Red Devils are now plotting to move the 12-month clause on Martial's deal so he can not quit on a free next summer.

I don't have the majority of the players that are going to be in the squad on August 9th when the market closes and we can make the squad official for the season.

The midfielder was one of the star performers at the World Cup in Russian Federation as he helped France win the tournament, something that has not helped rumours about his future in London.

Rooney has praised Martial and told talkSPORT: "I think Martial, ability-wise, is incredible". You don't have any divine right to win a trophy I know that. "Of course, when we welcome them [Maguire and Jamie Vardy] back I hope we can to give them the opportunity to continue their ambition and perform in the Premier League".

"It's a team who grind out results rather than really impress you - and that's probably what he is happy with, that's where he has been at his best all over the years".

"And I think the boss has something going on, but we'll keep that a secret".

Hazard nominated for The Best FIFA Men’s Player 2018 award
France coach Didier Deschamps and former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane head the nominees for the men's coach of the year award. At the World Cup Ronaldo scored four goals but they came in just two matches as Portugal were knocked out in the last 16.
