Manchester United endured a hard pre-season tour and besides that narrow 2-1 win over Real Madrid, the Devils were far from being impressive. To know how they feel physically mentally to try to give us a help.
Speaking at a news conference to preview Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester, Mourinho told reporters he does not expect any deadline-day activity at Old Trafford, despite also being linked to centre-backs Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng. "Yes I am a United fan and it was disappointing".
According to Manchester Evening News, Sam said to Sky Sports: "In the end, if United have not got a defender through the door, that will be because negotiations have broken down, however hard they have tried".
But United boss Mourinho failed to get the central defender he wanted.
"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.
"They (the World Cup players) returned on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today (Thursday) so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready". I'm going to enjoy this season. Then you might have half a chance.
The 22-year-old made 38 appearances for United last season but only 22 were starts and he was often switched from wing to wing before being replaced in matches.
"I want to continue to add success to this club's history".
"But he's got great experience, he's been at top clubs, he's been in hard positions before, he's in a hard position now I think, but he needs to try to find a way to get out of it".
"I am not sitting here having a discussion about Man Utd making the top four, neither should any of their supporters, neither should any of their board members, and neither, by the way, should any player or manager of that football club", he said.
"Over a year ago now they chases Ivan Perisic". Therefore Manchester United would likely be incentivised to offer Pogba a better contract to ward off Barcelona or drive his transfer fee up for a move in January or next summer.
He also won the World Cup this summer, starring for France as they beat Croatia in the final. Craig Burley speculates about whether Jose Mourinho is being driven out of Old Trafford.
