Paul Pogba skippers Manchester United on opening night

Paul Pogba skippers Manchester United on opening night

Mourinho is very fond of the Welsh winger and there's been plenty of speculation surrounding a move to Man United in each of the last three summers.

United have made it clear they are not interested in selling Pogba, however, and as long as the player shows no signs of being unhappy, they will not consider any bid for him.

Chelsea shattered the world-record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (US$92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian global Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champion Real Madrid.

"You [the media] repeat 1,000 times my relations with my players is not good", Mourinho stated.

The visitors mustered a decent response, though United always looked in control and the game appeared to be put beyond doubt late on by the rampaging Shaw - though Leicester netted an even later consolation.

In May, the world-class Spanish goalkeeper won Manchester United's Player of the Year award for the fourth time in five seasons. When the deadline passed at 5pm on Thursday there were no new arrivals at Old Trafford.

"I'd say it's a doubtful situation there", he said in regards to whether Mourinho will see out the season.

And his next comment has already led to backlash from Manchester United fans on social media after Mourinho said finishing behind City wasn't such a bad thing.... After missing out on the likes of Diego Godin, Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld in the last days of the window, Mourinho will now have to concentrate on the task at hand, as he noted in the pre-match press conference.

"A lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true. I am going to enjoy this season again".

"It's his third season, he's come through the academy and knows the club well". While Jose Mourinho and the transfer until 5pm to buy in new players, their players can be bought or loaned after the deadline.

Barcelona are keen on signing Paul Pogba, but United don't want to sell. United may not have played sparkling attacking football, but they were solid at the back with Bailly especially impressive.

Ogden writes: "Not for the first time in his managerial career, the story has become about Mourinho rather than the club where he's now in charge; it is rarely a signpost toward a positive and successful future when that happens".
