Manchester United were ready to spend £100m on central defender


Manchester United's summer seems to have been one of frustration despite three incoming transfers and the new squad numbers for this season's Premier League prove exactly where their biggest failing in the window was.

"As Manchester United... as a big team", he said.

Read the full interview with Alexis in Friday's edition of United Review, available to buy at Old Trafford. "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.

"The fact they have not got them - what sort of effect will that have on the players in the dressing room because some of the comments he has made this preseason have not done the young lads any favours".

Instead, Mourinho has allegedly been instructed to get the most out of his current squad, as well as begin to bring through more players from the academy setup to mirror the progress being made by neighbours Manchester City.

Having spent three seasons at Real's city rivals Atletico Madrid, on loan from Chelsea, Courtois expressed a desire to return to the Spanish capital from London - missing training with his former club earlier in the week to seemingly help push through a move. He's in the group of players who didn't have a pre season, it's as simple as that.

Pochettino Explains Real Reason Why Tottenham Didn't Sign Any Players This Summer
Spurs were also the only team in Europe's top five leagues and only English professional side not to make a single addition. Pochettino added: "I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out".

Snapchat's controversial redesign caused it to hemorrhage users
But some analysts on Tuesday brushed off Snap's user drop, saying that Snapchat always had more limited appeal than larger rivals. Eleven of Snapchat's shows reached an audience of over 10 million users during the quarter, compared to seven shows in Q1.

Paying it forward at a Medford Wawa Friday led to a memorable encounter with singer Keith Urban for a local substitute teacher. I would encourage everybody to do it because it makes you feel good about you". "And I just fell apart, fell apart", she said.

"He had nine days of pre-season where no training, no football, absolutely nothing". For nine days he didn't he's to start again. One player linked with a move away before the end of the month is Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Now it looks like no new arrivals will be heading to Old Trafford in this window.unless Mourinho has something up his sleeve.

"When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1,000 times is still a lie".

"I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.

Claude Puel's realistic aim will be to have Leicester finish in the top half of the Premier League this season. If it's not going well, though, I don't want to hear the moaning and groaning and I am sure the United fans don't want to hear it as well.
