Deadline day round-up: Kovacic in at Chelsea, all quiet at Manchester United

And while those players are all now back in training, with Lukaku, Rashford and Jones having returned earlier than scheduled, Mourinho has admitted he will still be without a number of key players against Leicester.

Several transfer targets were identified but failed to materialise and it seems the United boss doesn't fancy his chances of closing the considerable gap on Champions City with the pool of players left at Old Trafford.

"After Spurs there is an global break".

But an inconsistent defense may get a test from England global striker Jamie Vardy, though the Foxes did lose their best player - Riyad Mahrez - in the summer as he was sold to Manchester City.

'Now that I know my team-mates, I can focus on what I want to win.

Brazil worldwide Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

Varane worked under Mourinho at Real Madrid and has gone onto become a multiple time Champions League victor.
