Manchester United's Jose Mourinho not confident of new signings before deadline

Manchester United's Jose Mourinho not confident of new signings before deadline

The Red Devils were the closest challengers to record-breaking rivals Manchester City in 2017-18, but still finished some 19 points off the pace. "Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody", Mourinho told MUTV after his team's 1-0 friendly loss to Bayern Munich Sunday.

When asked if he was happy for City to be favourites, he said: "Since nine years I live with that situation, it's no problem".

Pre-season has clearly been a frustrating time for Mourinho, while a perceived lack of respect for leading his side to second spot last term has got under his skin.

"We won the triple and, since then, we are the favourites, so thank you - you are so kind!"

"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that".

"It is hard to believe that we finished second".

In late July the Portuguese said he was confident of getting at least one more signing through the door, but hopes have faded as Thursday's 5pm deadline edged closer.

"We could not spend more than we have done this season".

"We [already] spent a lot on young, young players for the next seasons".

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel".

"Raheem and Kevin arrived in a ideal way", added the City boss.
