Man United Fans Rage Against The Board After Dreadful Transfer Window

Man United Fans Rage Against The Board After Dreadful Transfer Window

Mourinho wanted to bolster his defence but failed in his quest as Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire stayed at Tottenham and Leicester respectively.

Liverpool look like the big winners of the window as they have emerged as second favourites for the title behind champions Manchester City after doing their business early in splashing over £170 million on Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

When talking in a media session about Spurs' opening fixture against Newcastle this Saturday lunchtime, Pochettino addressed the rumours, saying: "We didn't receive (any offer) for any player".

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.

The Old Trafford faithful had demanded the club make a strong statement after United finished 19 points off the top of the Premier League previous year.

The centre-back discussion has only become an issue this summer, and the club have felt that the options open to them have not warranted the investment they would have required. By United's calculations he had simply missed too much football through injury over the last three years - playing no more than 19 league games in each season.


The Red Devils and the Foxes have had just 24 meetings between them. However, Metro reports that as far as Tottenham's boss is concerned, there is no move.

"If you compare with Europe, you are at a complete disadvantage and it does not help the clubs in the Premier League", Pochettino said on Spurs' tour of the United States.

"When I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - it is hard to believe that we finished second", Jose said, "because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing and finish below us look like serial winners".

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has decided not to join Barcelona as claims of him wanting pay parity with Alexis Sanchez emerge. 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.

"Because you're not telling me Man United couldn't go out there and spend money on players". "When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1,000 times".
