Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

Paul Pogba transfer rumors: Barcelona or Manchester United?

Pogba is joined in midfield by Brazil worldwide Fred, who was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk in June, while there is also a place for Andreas Pereira following his eye-catching pre-season displays for United.

Just 75 seconds had passed when Alexis Sanchez's shot was blocked by Daniel Amartey's arm in the Leicester penalty area.

Despite selling him at Chelsea, Mourinho brought Lukaku to Old Trafford last summer and it's evident that he's a big admirer of the Belgian hitman.

If winning is all that matters, then only winning the Premier League and/or the Champions League will constitute success for Mourinho's United this season. Pressed on whether there would be incomings or outgoings at Old Trafford, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no".

United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly.

So how would Man United line up if Mourinho had landed the players he desired?

This season Shaw is looking to turn that all around, and make himself a Three Lions regular and somebody who is relied upon for major tournaments.

"He didn't have a pre-season, three days of pre-season", Mourinho said.

For the first time the EPL deadline has been moved forward to the day before the season kicks off when United hosts Leicester City today.

"Unavailable is Romero - he had a surgery after his injury before the World Cup".

Mourinho's relationship with players like Pogba and Martial has come under close scrutiny, as have the manager's mood swings over the club's failure to complete key signings he wanted in the transfer window. It will be interesting to see how Paul Pogba turns Manchester United fortune this season.

Leicester have finally cashed in on Riyad Mahrez but they've shown characteristic resolve to rebuff United's interest in Harry Maguire.

Ogden writes: "Not for the first time in his managerial career, the story has become about Mourinho rather than the club where he's now in charge; it is rarely a signpost toward a positive and successful future when that happens".
