Mourinho doesn't envisage Yerry Mina at Manchester United

Despite weeks of reported haggling over the potential signign of Harry Maguire from Leicester or Toby Alderweireld fro Tottenham, United ended up empty handed.

The club believe they have delivered over the course of the last two windows on the agreed targets with around £73m invested this window in Fred, Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant, as well £35m for Alexis Sanchez in January. "Every match now is important, every point is important, so we have to get the best out of every player".

United's pre-season saw them go on tour to the United States, playing five games before travelling to German for a friendly with Bayern Munich.

However, Eurosport understand from reliable sources close to the club that Pogba has not made any financial demands to the club.

The club did not consider any other centre-back on Jose Mourinho's wishlist of a similar value.

"They need to get a centre-back in".

"I'm astonished that a club of their ilk, a club who with their clout, a club that finished so far off the pace a year ago in terms of the points gap - we know they finished second but the points gap was huge - that they have done little or nothing", Burley said.

A new season begins tomorrow with Manchester United looking to catch up to neighbours City. However, Metro reports that as far as Tottenham's boss is concerned, there is no move.

Pochettino added: "I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out".

Elsewhere, Everton is hopeful of tying up a deal for Barcelona center-back Yerry Mina, who scored three times for Colombia at the World Cup, and Brazilian winger Bernard. "I'd prefer to look to the bench and to have them rather than to have 16-year-old boys without experience and without the power to be Premier Leagues players directly", said Mourinho.

"So, when you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that repeated 1,000 times is still a lie".

"Because you're not telling me Man United couldn't go out there and spend money on players". Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard return to training after extended leaves on Monday, which means that they are likely to be unfit for the match.
