Alexis Sanchez wishes Man United had signed 'many more world class players'

Sanchez is eager to hit the ground running this season after a disappointing start to his United career Sanchez is eager to hit the ground running this season after a disappointing start to his United career

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazil worldwide Fred, FC Porto teenager Diogo Dalot and experienced Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant this summer.

However, many Manchester United fans are concerned about the new campaign considering the lack of signings during the summer transfer window - Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant were the only incomings.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes explained what it would take for Mourinho to stand down as the Red Devils boss at the end of the Premier League season.

Brazil global Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah - a contender to play at centre half, but most probably at right back, considering United's options - has arrived at Premier League newcomers Fulham to agree a season long loan after spending past year on loan at Selhurst Park.

United were linked with Harry Maguire and Diego Godin but neither deal actually went through.

India vs England, Lord's Test
Well, bowling coach Bharat Arun hinted the visitors may not opt for an extra batsman and called it a "conservative move". The conditions have prompted the Indian camp to rethink their bowling strategy and find a combination to go with.

The Chile worldwide, 29, said he feels more comfortable at United now following a full preseason with the club and hopes to combine more effectively with teammates Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku this term, beginning with the season-opening match against Leicester City on Friday.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has shed some light on defender Toby Alderweireld's future in north London. It's been years since I've had a pre-season like this one, and I hope I'm in good shape to face Leicester.

The United manager also wanted Marouane Fellaini re-signed on a new contract. Even the statistics, as great as they are, do not equate to the gulf. And this season, for the first time in his career, Mourinho enters year three not having already succeeded but with something left to prove.

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website). "I am happy with all the players at the moment".

"I like my players and my group".

"A lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".
