José Mourinho expects only one more new arrival at United

  • Antonio Valencia leaves the field injured against the San Jose Earthquakes on July 22- Antonio Valencia's injury will one of the more worrying signs to Mourinho

With Darmian set to leave the club, United could be without a right-back when they take on Leicester City in their first game of the new Premier League season, as Antonio Valencia and newcomer Diogo Dalot are both injured.

DIOGO DALOT has signed for Manchester United and these are the first official pictures.

"I am confident I will get one, but I think two I am not going to get, which is not a drama", Mourinho told beIN SPORTS.

"I'm confident I'll get one". It's not going to be very different.

The former Wolfsburg midfielder was very close to a move to the Red Devils last season but Manchester United couldn't agree a fee with Inter Milan for the Croatian star.

United's senior players, including £52 million summer signing Fred, Sanchez and Juan Mata were in one group, but their effort was minimal and passes were frequently intercepted or went astray.

Reports reaching home from the United States tour depict players too nervous to talk openly about what they think, with the Daily Telegraph and The Sun claiming those in the squad feel they are "treading on eggshells".

"The players we have bought one is a goalkeeper cover, one is a 19-year-old kid".


Why? Well, because pre-season has been a bit of a nightmare for the Manchester United boss so far.

United start their Premier League campaign with Leicester City's visit to Old Trafford next Friday.

"I agree totally with the window closing at the same time the Premier League starts".

Tottenham Hotspur remain hugely keen on the player, but there is so far absolutely no change to United's stance that he will not be sold within the Premier League.

Mourinho also had his say on Paul Pogba, and his influence on the France team that lifted the World Cup, the Portuguese coach insisted that the conditions were flawless for the midfielder to flourish and that he should take this form into the Premier League season.

But Mourinho, who has bemoaned the lack of established players he has on United's U.S. tour, says that is too soon after the World Cup and the start should be a week later.

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure throughout pre-season, due to several of his high profile players being unavailable due to their exploits at the World Cup and an inability to land his main transfer targets. When they fell they are going to the knockout phase and can win the World Cup, they close each other.
