Why Derby County can still sign players despite transfer deadline closing

Why Blackpool and Fleetwood Town can still sign players after the transfer window has closed Gary Neville Names The One Thing That Has To Happen For Liverpool To Win The League

Not enough money has been spent, says the Portuguese, who has seen three players added to his squad over the summer - Brazil midfielder Fred for $60 million, Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot ($24 million) and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant ($2 million).

On the eve of the new season, which starts with United's clash against Leicester, Mourinho also claimed that finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, was "one of the greatest achievements" of his career.

Mourinho warned United could face a "difficult" season if the club failed to sign new players, but he is insisting he will be content to work with the players in his squad in comments that may not reveal his true feelings after a disappointing few weeks of transfer business.

Part of this can be explained by the fact one of the 20 Premier League clubs - Tottenham - saw no incomings, the first time this has happened since the summer transfer window was introduced in 2003.

"My view is that it is hard for me to believe that we finished second", he said.

"If Liverpool can get some impetus, then we don't know how Manchester City will react under pressure if a team can stay close to them at the end of the season".

United had been hoping to sign a centre-back before the deadline but hope has faded in recent days.

Alexis Sanchez wishes Man United had signed 'many more world class players'
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 list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel they".

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic will all be unavailable for Friday's opener against Leicester. I don't think they can challenge on both fronts with the way they play, unless they adapt and they change: the way they play at 100 miles an hour from the first minute to the last minute, it's very hard to do that Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday-Wednesday.

"They returned on Monday", he said.

"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"In pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane", he added.
