Mourinho worried as Premier League kicks off

Manchester United Vs Leicester City Match Preview: Team News, Predicted Line-Up And Stats

Timothy Fosu-Mensah - a contender to play at centre half, but most probably at right back, considering United's options - has arrived at Premier League newcomers Fulham to agree a season long loan after spending past year on loan at Selhurst Park.

Mourinho had been desperate to add a defender to his squad before the Premier League kick-off against Leicester at Old Trafford on Friday but proposed deals for Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin never materialised.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his global future.

It is understood United officials have grown increasingly tired and suspicious of Pogba's high-profile agent Mino Raiola, whom they blame for stories that his client would prefer to play for Barcelona.

He also moaned about the lack of players available to him during the off-season because of the World Cup and slammed the quality of depth within his squad. Whilst it lasts, damn well coach this side.

As time went on the Portuguese settled for two signings and then claimed he's expecting only one more player to be bought.




Internally, the greatest frustration for Mourinho has been waiting for the return of those players who had the longest World Cup campaigns. "I mean, it's early for that, but I am painting a picture".

Another commented: "You need to replace Jose, Eric". If it's not going well, though, I don't want to hear the moaning and groaning and I am sure the United fans don't want to hear it as well.

After they host Leicester, United's other fixtures this month are a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on August 19 and a home match against Tottenham Hotspur on August 27. You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.

"They are bigger, they are better and their standards are higher than [just] being in the top four". That's the only thing good enough for them.

"Twelve months ago they were unprepared to do that deal, it beggars belief".

Now is the summer of Jose Mourinho's discontent.
