Jose Mourinho: This is the flawless habitat for young players

  • Jose Mourinho  Jose Mourinho has been the first to admit that Manchester United's pre-season preparation has been less than ideal

Here's an example of some players showing off how they're now in high spirits- reserve goalkeeper Joel Pereira took to social media and posted a photo of summer transfer window addition Diogo Dalot flexing his muscles in a red United home kit with his name and #20 on it.

"I'm confident I'll get one".

"In every pre-season it happens the same with every club, which is the manager wants more".

"It's our nature, you always want more for your team".

"I agree with him because it must be hard for him to work with a group of players that maybe he is going to have 50 percent of them in the future", the midfielder said.

The Red Devils boss is targeting Leicester's Harry Maguire, as well as Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic and Chelsea's Willian.

Reports reaching home from the USA tour depict players too nervous to talk openly about what they think, with the Daily Telegraph and The Sun claiming those in the squad feel they are "treading on eggshells".

Mourinho has nine players out injured, while a further eight still on extended breaks following their exploits in the Soccer World Cup in Russian Federation this summer and not due back in training until this week.


"I agree that when the Premier League starts, the transfer window close", Mourinho said.

Mourinho gave United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward his list of "five names a few months ago" and is now playing the waiting game as the deadline creeps closer. It's not going to be very different.

And Mourinho is angry at United's failure to deliver all the transfer targets he identified at the start of the summer.

Thus far he has bought three players including Brazilian worldwide Fred, but Mourinho is keen to have two new faces in the squad come the opening match with Leicester on Friday week.

With Grant and Dalot not seen as first-choice players, Mourinho says his starting XI will be similar to last season's.

The French footballing legend left Real Madrid at the end of last season having guided the La Liga giants to three consecutive Champions League titles.

Summer signing Fred makes his first start for United.

"You look at other countries with lots of players in the World Cup they start later - Spain and Italy start later".
