Jose Mourinho warned earlier this week that if Manchester United failed to strengthen their squad before the transfer deadline it would be a “difficult season” at Old Trafford.
His transfer fears came true. When the deadline passed at 5pm yesterday there were no new arrivals at Old Trafford.
The Premier League season kicks off tonight when United host Leicester City and all eyes will be on Mourinho. His transfer frustrations dominate the UK football press this morning and there’s rumours of discontent between the Portuguese and the Old Trafford board.
£100m bid for Varane
Earlier this summer United bought midfielder Fred, full-back Diogo Dalot and back-up keeper Lee Grant, but it was in central defence where Mourinho was really seeking new faces.
Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Raphael Varane were all linked, but no deals materialised in the window.
