Charlie Nicholas makes Man United prediction about Jose Mourinho

"Come on United", he says.

Foxes fans were given the double boost on Thursday of confirmation of Harry Maguire's presence this season following United's interest and the announcement that Jamie Vardy has signed a new long-term contract.

United have denied that Pogba has asked for a pay rise, while stating the 25-year-old midfielder will not be sold following the end of the window for Premier League clubs.

Fred completed a £52m switch to Manchester United from Ukrainian Premier League side Shakhtar Donetsk, while Portuguese teenager Diogo Dalot finalised a £17m switch from FC Porto. United said they were happy to be kept informed.

After the finals it was not the price being quoted for Mina but the structure of the agents' fees being proposed that made the Old Trafford club uncomfortable.

United have faced a major struggle trying to add quality to their squad for one reason or another, but are widely thought to be trying to get another defender in before tomorrow's deadline. I enjoyed last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position this club has had in five years.

Mourinho wanted a third choice home-grown eligible goalkeeper and Lee Grant was signed.

As if Ed Woodward's job wasn't hard enough, Alexis Sanchez has told the media that he expects Manchester United to sign "big, experienced" players in order to compete.

Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race. 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.

'If they feel they can help us [against Leicester] - 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour.

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho.

"Unavailable is [Sergio] Romero - he had a surgery after his injury before the World Cup".

There was no question of Pogba being allowed to leave and there remains great support for Anthony Martial at the club, with every inquiry about him over the summer being met with a firm refusal.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "Now it's serious stuff".

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website). I just don't know, if I was an owner, I'm thinking, 'Well you've had a lot of money on these players, you don't fancy them. He worked amazingly well on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and he's one of the players I have to speak with to see how physically and mentally he feels.

"A lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".

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".
