Jose Mourinho: I won't moan if Man United don't sign another player

Wenger rules Alexis Sanchez out of Arsenal clash with Leicester City

Wenger rules Alexis Sanchez out of Arsenal clash with Leicester City

That is a big change from a year ago, when United played only five pre-season matches after a friendly against Manchester City in Beijing was called off.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker played a pivotal role as United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League, despite missing the final two months of the campaign after rupturing his cruciate ligament against Anderlecht in April.

"Europa League is not Champions League", he said.

And his confidence comes from the major shake-up at Old Trafford in his year in charge.

He has trained with the club during his rehabilitation, though, and Mourinho has made clear he still believes the forward can do a job for him.

The 35-year-old was released at the end of the season, but a new contract is being discussed. "He is not ready to play tomorrow, so it is not something that's urgent".

"He thinks he can do more and wants more at the highest level". "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces".

Mourinho reiterated at a pre-match conference yesterday his satisfaction with the club's transfer business this summer window, despite not achieving "100 per cent" of his targets.

"There is no guarantee, but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better".

"We also have people coming later - Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, maybe Zlatan". But we are involved in four competitions.

Mourinho knows they were over-reliant on the injured striker's goals and wants more support for this season's main man, Romelu Lukaku.

"I think everybody is in Europe".

Jose Mourinho has insisted that he will not be too fussed if Manchester United are not able to complete a fourth summer signing before the close of the transfer window. "I think it is the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", Mourinho said.

"I am not a hard person to work with, and I understand the reality of the market".

"I understand the reality of the market, of the numbers and that my club by doing 75 percent of what I initially asked did very well". I'm not in a position of crying, of moaning, protesting.

"And if, until 31 August, the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive, I will not moan".

"But I was not thinking of him because I never go to players who I think are the impossible mission".

"We have a central midfielder and a striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides, but we have players and if we can not strengthen then we have people we trust".
