"I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Mourinho revealed this morning he is not expecting anybody to join United before the transfer deadline, with the window shutting at 5pm.

"The players with a proper pre-season are fit and they are strong".

'In fact I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that by May the title will be back on Merseyside for the first time in 29 years'.

"I'm not confident", Mourinho said, when asked whether there would be more players arriving before the deadline.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

Kelvin Benjamin dominates Panthers on 28-yard TD
Benjamin had been pretty critical of the Panthers star in a recent interview. "I should've never went to Carolina". It's not clear what they said to each other, but the interaction did not end in the friendliest of ways.

The Red Devils had been linked with moves for Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Jerome Boateng before a surprise candidate emerged in the form of Chelsea's Kurt Zouma late on Wednesday night.

His side face Leicester City in their opening fixture at Old Trafford on Friday and it was put to Mourinho that there was a perception the club had gone backwards over the summer. "You can not expect them to be fit".

That figure could still be reduced if players are sold to overseas clubs, and Bridge continued: "It leaves you thinking 'where does it go in the next three weeks?'".

"My view is that first of all it is hard for me to believe that we finished second when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do", the United boss said. "When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

"I know there has been a lot of talk about pre-season in the press but I am sure behind the scenes, Jose has been giving them the right amount of work".

With so much business being done since the end of last season, it has been tough to keep track of who has gone where.
