Manchester United transfer woes summed up by Gary Neville's old tweet

Man Utd transfer news

After a seemingly endless summer of football, the Premier League comes roaring back to life on Friday evening as Manchester United take on Leicester City at Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson hates him because he was the reason behind Pogba's departure to Juventus in 2012.

The Portuguese went some way to countering suggestions he is unhappy with his squad at his pre-match press conference.

"I said that during preseason and it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat: Preseason is hard when you don't have your players to work, that's as simple as that".

However, Tottenham have become the first Premier League club not to sign a player since transfer windows were introduced in 2003, with their primary target Jack Grealish remaining an Aston Villa player. "I hope so. Will it entertain the fans? No".

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline, but an inflated market has made the challenge of improving defensively an even tougher ask.

It remains to be seen whether his most recent comments are indeed accurate or whether those spoken in pre-season offer the most telling reflection of the mood within the Old Trafford camp at this moment in time.

Mourinho's Red Devils kickoff their campaign against Leicester City tomorrow.

United have only won three trophies since, the Europa League, Fa Cup, League Cup.

"The Red Devils finished runners up last season, but I don't think they will emerge as realistic title contenders or neighbours City's biggest challengers for the title this season", Owen told BetVictor.

"It's time just to say "tomorrow we have a Premier League match" and we have to play to win it".

"I would like to have two more, maybe one if possible", he said after losing 4-1 to Liverpool.

Despite being critical of the club, Scholes is hoping the Red Devils get their campaign off to a flawless start when they face Leicester City at 3am tomorrow. Unlike the majority of the United side, Sanchez enjoyed a full preseason and will be raring to go.
