United hunt for defender drags on as transfer deadline looms

Manchester United season preview

"I don't like to talk about the players who are with other teams".

Tottenham might not have made a signing this summer, but manager Mauricio Pochettino has praised the "massive effort" that the club have made to retain the existing squad, most notably Harry Kane.

It leaves Mourinho to head into the new season with the five centre-backs already at his disposal - Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Ed Woodward and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez met in Miami last month but negotiations for the French World Cup victor never got off the ground.

"My perception is he arrived Monday, happy, proud, with a desire to work", Mourinho said ahead of Friday's opening Premier League fixture against Leicester.

"He worked amazingly well on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday".

"But it's the same conversation as with [Ashley] Young, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Jesse] Lingard, it's the same".

It's also believed that the Foxes are unwilling to let their reigning player of the year depart and will stand firm in the face of any late United bid.

Across much of the island, a popular tourist destination, once-bustling villages have been turned into virtual ghost towns. This morning the island suffered a strong 6.2 tremor that was felt in neighbouring Bali, Reuters reports.

Pressed on whether there would be incomings or outgoings at Old Trafford, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no".

Mourinho would ideally like two more signings before tomorrow's deadline and spoke of his confidence that he would get at least one through the door, warning that failure to improve the squad would make this a "difficult season".

The Portuguese is open to selling a player that he criticised for not returning to United's pre-season tour of America after the birth of his second child.

With the start of the Premier League season just days away, the FC panel assess how Tottenham's lack of transfer activity will affect their top-four chances.

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

"I congratulated him and he said 'no gaffer I am really disappointed, I should have scored more goals.' I said 'but you won the Golden Boot.' He said 'yes, but gaffer I'm disappointed'".

"By the end of November or December you don't need words, you'll see by then which teams are candidates to win the Premier League", he said. I think it is clear what is going on and how we are going to move in the future.
