Jose Mourinho 'not confident' of deadline day signings

Manchester United lost their hope to sign the Belgian after the initial disagreement but now reached an agreement to sign the player but only after Tottenham is able to secure the replacement.

And with the transfer window closing at 5pm today, time is running out for any new players to sign.

The Red Devils boss has Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at his disposal but the centre-halves have all struggled with issues over their form and injuries.

Boateng is one of several centre-backs that have been linked with Manchester United this summer, as they look to add the requisite defensive solidity and leadership quality that Jose Mourinho demands.

The Gunners did not make a move for Croatia defender Domagoj Vida, despite rumours to the contrary.

Jose Mourinho does not expect anybody to join Manchester United before the transfer deadline.

"It's not going to help the Premier League clubs because we're going to compete in Europe and in the Champions League but have 20 days less".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho does not expect to add to his squad as the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday, despite warning a hard season lies ahead for the English giants without further recruits.

Bellamy feels that Mourinho has allowed the World Cup to sway his thinking somewhat, which he claims is out of character for the Portuguese.

Rio Ferdinand has spoken about Liverpool's work in the transfer window and has admitted that the Reds are the most likely to challenge Manchester City for the league title. Leicester City have lost on seven of their last eight visits in the league, scoring a total of just three goals in the process. I'm sure United would've known of him, certainly Mourinho I imagine would have known of him as well.

United, according to sources, still hold an interest in Leicester's Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham and Barcelona's Yerry Mina but each deal is proving complicated.

That felt like a reference to Liverpool but, more importantly for United, it was also an admission that it will need a dramatic improvement this season for his own team to bridge the gap.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline. Where he's with his team on the training camp, completely isolated from the external world, where they focus just on football, where the dimensions of the game can only motivate.

Unai Emery has enjoyed the luxury of having most of his squad available for pre-season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette forming a fearsome front four.
