Jose Mourinho furious over centre-back hunt

Alexis Sanchez wants Manchester United to sign players of Arturo Vidal's quality

Manchester United's chief executive Ed Woodward is reportedly against the idea of letting the 25-year-old leave the club, irrespective of his troublesome relationship with Mourinho. It is a squad littered with exceptional talent, including David De Gea, Romelu Lukaku, World Cup victor Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.

United were asked if they would be interested in signing Atlético Madrid defender Diego Godín, only for the Uruguay captain to sign a new contract with the Spanish club a few days later.

By their usual standards, Manchester United have had a disastrous summer transfer window.

According to reports breaking tonight, United had £100m available to spend on a world class centre-back this summer, but did not deem any of Mourinho's favoured options as worth spending such big money on.

Jose Mourinho growing concerned at Manchester United's lack of activity
Mourinho was speaking at a 9am press conference and his words did not equivocally rule out the possibility of something happening. I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane .

Harry Maguire was a genuine target, and although no progress was ever made with Leicester, United are still admirers of the England player.

How Mourinho reacts from now will be dictated to some extent by results, but the key objectives at the turn of the year have all been fulfilled as far as the club are concerned.

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

"It was more down to Mourinho's pragmatism and I'm not sure how much longer the players will put up with it".

He remains the world record holder at the 100m - with a time of 9.58 seconds - and the 200m, where he has clocked 19.19 seconds. The Mariners have insisted that the extended trial is not a commitment to a contract, but want to give the Jamaican a chance.

Claude Puel's realistic aim will be to have Leicester finish in the top half of the Premier League this season. 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.

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website).

"I said that during pre-season - it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane - but I repeat, pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work with".

"But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group". You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.
