Jose Mourinho Won't Cry Over Having to Settle for Three New Players

13 Août, 2017, 08:38 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Jose Mourinho has confirmed Manchester United are in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about signing for the second part of the season.

But October and November bring meetings with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in the space of three weeks, by which time United's Champions League campaign will be in full swing.

However, he is without a club as he recovers from cruciate knee ligament damage sustained during the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht in April.

United To Offer £500,000-A-Week Deal To Lure High-Profile Attacker To Old Trafford?

He has trained with the club during his rehabilitation, though, and Mourinho has made clear he still believes the forward can do a job for him.

Antonio Conte lifted the Premier League title in May at the end of his first season as Chelsea manager, but the summer hasn't gone according to plan for the Italian.

Such absentees means the United boss does not believe they have advanced hugely compared with this time past year, but he retains hope of making a fourth summer signing. "He's not ready to play tomorrow".

Mourinho said: "I think everybody is in Europe".

United will open their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a home date against West Ham on Sunday.

With Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney no longer around, there is pressure on Paul Pogba to establish himself as the team's leader after blowing hot and cold in his first season following his return from Juventus.

With Sergio Aguero and Brazilian Gabriel Jesus the options for central striker and the likes of David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and new arrival Bernardo Silva to choose from as attacking midfielders, City have little choice but to attack.

"We are Manchester United and we want to get back to being the big Manchester United". He scored the first goal in a match for Everton seven times in the league last season - a record only bettered by Alexis Sanchez and Harry Kane (nine each).

"We have the confidence levels of a team who won a European competition".

"Manchester City have the best team on paper", ex-England midfielder Owen Hargreaves told the Premier League official website.

"It is not because I have always done it (won the league title in his second season) that I am going to do it again", Mourinho said.

"My initial analysis coming from January and progressively through the other months I was thinking about four players but I am not a hard person to work with - in spite of it looking different sometimes". Matic, in particular, was an odd sale for me and really surprising that they sold him to a close rival.

"I also understand that my club by doing 75% of what I initially asked, I think the club did very well so I don't think I am in a position of crying, moaning, and protesting".
