Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United's transfer activity is sufficient

Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United's transfer activity is sufficient

Second season, things fell apart and, when the centre could not hold any longer, he was fired from his job.

This has a two-way benefit for the league: the standard of football will remain high, and so will the ratings.

'When I joined Man United last year, I thought immediately that we needed a kind of Matic.

Are there any transfers that have stood out for you? "I can handle that situation". "But we have players and if we cannot strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust". The worst, though, was that star midfielder Dimitri Payet outgrew the club and demanded a transfer in January.

United may be judged against their neighbours, both over 90 minutes and nine months, as Mourinho looks to extend his 100-per-cent record in sophomore seasons. Let the season get underway and we'll find out soon enough.

"I think everybody is in Europe".

Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield glory was a decent return in the Portuguese's first campaign in the Old Trafford dugout, as was Champions League qualification. He's not a young guy who comes from another country.

Ake excelled in a loan spell for Eddie Howe's side last season and the Netherlands international could prove Antonio Conte wrong in allowing him to leave.

Chelsea's title success last season was thoroughly deserved and fascinating in the way it followed a tactical tweak, but it wasn't the program that had been billed. I've got a massive decision to make on who my striker is going to be, because I like the idea of Romelu Lukaku, but I think it's going to take a little bit of time for him to fit into United. It is going to be the same for everybody.

Mourinho delivered his Matic verdict in his usual deadpan fashion in his pre-match press conference ahead of hosting West Ham this afternoon. Liverpool is equipped. Chelsea were the champions easily, they lost some players but bought some players.

Asked if Manchester United was his team now, he didn't hesitate to agree.

Prediction: 10th and captain van Dijk is sold either this summer or in January.

"We are much better organised at every level". Not surprisingly, West Ham struggled, finishing 17 points worse than the previous season and leading to some changes in East London. "I'd say seven teams to fight for the title and 20 teams to fight for the victory every weekend, every match". Who can forget the Champions League game against Barcelona where Gundogan scored twice to give City a 3-1 win over a former Pep side?

"He brings aggression to United's midfield, which is something they've been lacking".

Manchester City stars Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are available at odds of 7-1 and 9-1 respectively.

Is a reunion on the cards?What's the story?
