  • Man Utd transfer news Harry Maguire

Manchester City are favourites to be the first team since Neville's United to retain the Premier League, with the chasing pack hoping that a renewed focus on the Champions League might lead to City taking their eye off the defence of their title.

In successive transfer windows, the Merseyside club has broken the world transfer fee record for both a goalkeeper and a defender.

Referencing reports that Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is looking at Barcelona as a possible new home for his player, Ferdinand said: "Don't you dare allow this ED. #MUFC is Pogba's home!"

Maguire and Leicester's main goal threat, Jamie Vardy, may not start, having just returned to pre-season training this week after their exertions in Russian Federation.

Mourinho has already predicted a "difficult season" if United do not do more business, so losing a World Cup-winning midfielder would only add to that.

Mauricio Pochettino is not expecting Tottenham Hotspur to make any signings before Thursday's deadline but insists he is happy with his squad and that the club can make forward strides this season.


Asked if there was good competition between him and Jimenez, Bonatini said: "Yes, we are all here to help each other". The club made a massive effort to try to extend contracts with people like Harry Kane. "Will it happen? I don't know but we believe we can do it". I do think they have one over on City. "However, individually the players can improve", Guardiola said during the Sky Sports Premier League launch.

[It's about] if you really need [them] or not and then if you can get your target or not.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth past year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.

At a time of the season when all football fans dare to dream, there has again been little to set pulses racing in Newcastle as owner Mike Ashley refuses to join in the Premier League arms race, much to the chagrin of manager Rafael Benitez. Some players will be fit to start the game, some will be fit to be on the bench. But strong performances in Russian Federation weren't a necessity when it came to Premier League clubs deciding whether to spend the fruits of football's biggest television contracts.

REUTERS/John CliftonFor Wolves, a top-half finish would represent a great campaign - and Leicester City's title win of 2015/16 proved that the top six is breakable given a slice of luck and the right circumstances - but it would take something miraculous to get any better than a seventh-placed finish.
