Jose Mourinho aims early dig at 'serial winners' Liverpool and Tottenham

How Manchester City could look in How Manchester City could look in

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is "not confident" he will get any new signings before the transfer deadline.

City are the reigning champions after Pep Guardiola guided them to 100 points last season, but the Premier League years had previously been dominated by United, who won 13 titles under Sir Alex Ferguson.

"So it's time - at least for me - to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed, so I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to this first couple of matches".

"I focus on just what we have, and we go with everything we have to the first match".

Asked to confirm that he is expecting no movement at all on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no".

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

Mourinho's targets for that position were primarily Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Jérôme Boateng of Bayern Munich and Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes that Liverpool need to exit the Champions League early if they have any chance of winning the Premier League this season.

"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready.

"It looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, that's as simple as that".

"Because it is very important how they feel and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

The Red Devils coach has cut a sullen figure throughout pre-season with the former Chelsea boss unable to hide his dissatisfaction with Brazil worldwide midfielder Fred being his sides only high profile signing.

"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said.
