Mourinho says Manchester United still in the market for a winger

Mourinho says Manchester United still in the market for a winger

United have invested heavily on the signings of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof in the transfer window, while champions Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal have also spent large sums.

The Hammers finished 11th in the Premier League last year, as they settled into their first campaign at the London Stadium, recovering well after a very shaky start at the new ground.

Afterwards the manager was predictably delighted with all the riches at his disposal and promised that City will "improve the way we attack" this season.

Lukaku certainly has some big boots to fill this Premier League campaign, with the Swede bagging just over one goal in every two matches in the league.

This much was self evident, when United's new No.9 - the number which Ibrahimovic occupied last season - Romelu Lukaku deemed it necessary to seek the Swede's permission before taking his desired squad number.

Guardiola said he had no words to describe Foden's tantalisingly brilliant showing in last month's 2-0 International Champions Cup loss to Manchester United.

Mourinho has spoken of his desire to change that and spend up over a decade at Old Trafford.

"If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid". Firstly because the top teams are unlikely to ever approve a measure which would threaten their own dominance, and secondly because it would infringe European Union restraint of trade laws in any case.

Real Madrid win back-to-back UEFA Super Cups as their attention now turns to Barcelona and the Spanish Super Cup. Of the three, only the Swedish defender failed to impress in pre-season.

In the past two seasons, Chelsea and Leicester City have both sacked their managers less than a year after winning the title. A squad with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva or Bernardo Silva can only aspire to the top.

16 - Stoke City - Having acquired the services of Maxim Chuopo Moting from Schalke and Kurt Zouma from Chelsea, Stoke looks strong and able to survive the cut. Now the defence has been beefed up with the arrival of Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo they could deliver the title.

Manchester United wants new additions, too, while in Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp is trying to make signings as well as hold on to his best players. "I'm happy with the effort the club did and I'm happy they managed to do 75 percent of the work before the Premier League starts".

Manchester City enters the English Premier League season as the favorite to top the table at the end of next May.

"We are in a position to do quality work better than we did in the first season, so I am convinced that our second season, in terms of the quality of our team, is going to be better". City is -110 on the goal line.

For the first time in 20 years, Arsene Wenger's side will be missing from the Champions League as a consequence of their fifth-place Premier League finish.
