Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea All Ready For Big Signings

"I asked Pep directly, Premier League or Champions League?"

The closest any club had come to not signing a player was in the summer of 2003, when Leeds United signed only Jody Morris for free.

'My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second when I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, ' Mourinho said during today's press conference.

United finished as runners-up last season, 19 points behind Manchester City, and Mourinho has already made it clear that his team needs more players if they are to overhaul their neighbours.

Mourinho has admitted this morning that he is "not confident" of any new arrivals before tonight's 5pm transfer deadline so he'll have to work with what he's got as Claude Puel's Leicester visit Old Trafford. 'When I listen, when I read, it's hard to believe we finished second because you are capable of making people who finish second (sound like we) were relegated.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second".

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

As for the main challengers, Neville lists United, Liverpool and Chelsea are the only potential rivals for City's crown. "[Sergio] Romero, [Antonio] Valencia, Marcos Rojo, [Diogo] Dalot, Ander Herrera, [Nemanja] Matic [are injured] and I think that's it".

"They returned on Monday".

"In Championship Manager you can just press a button", he stated. In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now.

Mourinho did confirm that Alexis Sanchez, who was a highlight for United over pre-season, is fit and firing though.

"We have only seen him when he has appeared in front of the TV cameras this summer and heard what he has told the media, and I suspect he will behave very differently on the training ground with his players".
