No extra players for Manchester United
It is no secret that Jose Mourinho wanted some extra players before the start of this season. His club has been linked to practically any centre-back in the world, but none of them moved to Old Trafford this summer.
The transfer window is closed now, so it’s time to focus on football again. Jose Mourinho how no time to feel sad about their inactivity on the transfer market, since they play against Leicester City tonight. The Mancunians bought Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant but that’s not enough for Mourninho to feel good about his squad. There is a big chance that players like Paul Pogba, Ahsley Young, Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard don’t show up in the game tonight. All these players were active in the last weekend of the World Cup and they had a short preseason. Romelu Lukaku also played for Belgium in the final weekend of the World Cup, but he cut his holiday short to be fit for the start of the new season.
Man United v Leicester City
There is a negative vibe going around the club at this moment. Fans are unhappy with the business the club has done this summer and they don’t like the way Mourinho acts in the media. A win in the first match of this season might turns this vibe around in a more positive atmposphere. Mourinho’s team starts the Premier League with a home match against Leicester City. Even without the World Cup players, Manchester United should be able to win this match. Players like Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku should be able to perform for a crowded Old Trafford.
