Jose Mourinho is bracing himself to miss out on landing a fourth and final summer signing, with Manchester United likely to go into the new season without the winger they wanted. The Swede suffered a serious knee injury in April and is out of contract.

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.

'It was very clear by showing what he did previous year was not enough for him.

Manchester United will begin their Premier League campaign against West Ham United on Sunday and they need to make a statement straight from the first whistle.

'Obviously [we wanted] a player for another position playing from the sides, but we have players and if you can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have people that we trust and we go for it'. We are not desperate to have it (a deal) done or not.

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws - the highest in the league.

Final hearing on Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute will start December 5
A person named Triloki Nath Pandey is the trustee who is pursuing the case on behalf of Lord Ram in the Supreme Court. The Hindus claim that it is the birthplace of Lord Rama where a mosque was built in 1528-29 CE (935 AH) by Mir Baqi.

The United manager had outlined four positions he wanted to strengthen in to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the start of the transfer window, but only Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have arrived at Old Trafford.

Instead, Mourinho will likely use either Jesse Lingard or Marcus Rashford on the left wing, with the former starting the UEFA Super Cup against Real before being replaced by the latter. "We lost Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Zlatan Ibrahimovic", he said. He thinks he can do more. We have confidence levels of a team that won a European competition and is back in the Champions League.

"In my other clubs what I had was more players scoring goals", he said.

"I don't think I am going to win it because I always win it in the second season". "I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75% of what I asked, the club did well".

"In the Premier League I'd say seven teams will fight for the title and 20 fight for the victory in every game, every match".
