Why Blackpool and Fleetwood Town can still sign players after the transfer window has closed

Why Blackpool and Fleetwood Town can still sign players after the transfer window has closed

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool did reach they Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid, but Mourinho is still bristling over the perception of last season as a disappointment for United, who also lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea.

This new deadline which closes before the season starts has really ramped up the pressure on these transfers which means we could see a whole host of panic buys as clubs look to add to their squad before the Premier League season starts this weekend.

It was also a good day for Leicester City, who, not only managed to keep hold of Harry Maguire amid reported interest from United, but also brought in the well-regarded young defender Caglar Soyuncu from Freiburg, tied Jamie Vardy down to a new deal and signed Croatia Under-21 global Filip Benkovic.

United's boss, about to begin his third season at the helm at Old Trafford, has cut a disgruntled figure during the summer, apparently unhappy with the club's transfer window activity.

When asked whether he expected to welcome a fresh additions to his United squad, Mourinho offered these comments: "The information I have is no".

But he was quick to point out his United side were closest to runaway leaders Manchester City last season, even if they finished 19 points adrift.

Shearer said: It has been a long time since anyone won back-to-back titles but I think City will win the Premier League again because of Pep - he won't want their standards slipping. His side face Leicester City in their opening fixture at Old Trafford on Friday and it was put to Mourinho that there was a perception the club had gone backwards over the summer. We go with everything we have in that first match. Sometimes its also hard to believe I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues, and I keep thinking the second position a year ago was one of my biggest achievements in England'.

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

"The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button", he said. In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now.

"[Alexis is] more than ready but you can not have the players who arrived only last Monday after the World Cup semi-finals or final and three weeks' holiday".
