Jose Mourinho makes cryptic Manchester United Premier League title prediction

Worries for Mourinho

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.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have both been linked to Jerome Boateng, who was back in training with Bayern Munich on Thursday.

Likewise, in his final campaign in the Spanish capital in 2012-13, Mourinho clashed with a number of senior players in a trophyless season.

With just about an hour to go before the transfer window slams shut and just over 24 hours left before Manchester United kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester City, there is no doubt Jose Mourinho has his hands full. "It is time for me to stop thinking about the market", he lamented on Thursday morning.

Mourinho has been further irked by seeing rivals Liverpool steal a march on United to emerge as the second favourites for the title behind Manchester City thanks to a more than £170 million splurge on new signings.

As United dither, Liverpool have emerged as second favourites for the title behind City after splashing over £170 million ($220 million) on goalkeeper Alisson and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Mauricio Pochettino feels it is a "massive challenge" to manage the workload of Tottenham's World Cup stars in the early weeks of the new Premier League season.

In contrast to the change across London, Tottenham Hotspur have yet to add a single signing ahead of their first season in a new 62,000 capacity stadium. Particularly as a manager, for irrespective of who has done it, you're going to be responsible.

The two Premier League clubs have been negotiating for the Belgian defender since quite some time now, but an agreement has failed to materialise.

"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready.

A wonderful summer of incomings concluded with the club-record capture of Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore for £18 million, and the loan signing of Belgium worldwide Leander Dendoncker - though the club say the deal will become permanent next summer.
