Jose Mourinho makes stunning claim on deadline day morning
09 August 2018, 01:57 | Henrietta Morgan
Fred is one of United’s three summer signings to date
Yet a downbeat Mourinho has admitted he may not get the defender he listed as his top priority when he submitted his transfer wish-list last May, as he admitted he was growing exhausted of the endless speculation ahead of transfer deadline day.
Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng were all major targets that look like failing to materialise for the frustrated United manager.
Having been linked with Paris Saint-Germain for weeks, Manchester United weighed in at the weekend as they look to reinforce their defence before the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday.
'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season.
The Portuguese believes runners-up are often portrayed as if they have been relegated and those who finish below them are presented as "serial winners".
Premier League new boys Cardiff City, Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers all sit mid-table in our unique chart, and that promoted triumvirate will be eager to build on their decent records, but it's not such great viewing for Southampton (3 wins), Newcastle United (4 wins), Bournemouth (5 wins) and Everton (5 wins) fans, while Tottenham Hotspur have a shocking opening day record for a team that will want to be challenging for the title, as they have only won six of their last 20 opening day matches, but they will fancy downing Newcastle on Saturday, who they defeated 2-0 on the opening day of the season previous year.
Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones all came back early from their own extended breaks but Mourinho sounded downbeat again when he was asked about the new season. In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have that until now. I repeat: "pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that".
