Manchester United complete signing of Matic

Manchester United's Jose Mourinho worried about Neymar to PSG world record move

The timing of Mourinho's statement does seem a little unusual given that it's only pre-season, but he's trying to build-up the Frenchman's confidence ahead of the new campaign.

But, after his performances during United's pre-season tour, he's set to be included in Jose Mourinho's Premier League and Champions League squads next season, according to the Duncan Castles. "We have definitely got the team to do that". You're going to be looking for that as a club.

As he sprayed cross-field passes with pin-point accuracy, Paul Pogba had an eye-catching game, roaming on the left side of midfield and generally making a nuisance of himself for the opposition. Expensive is the fact there will now be more players at GBP 100m, more players at GBP 50m, more players at GBP 60m - that's the problem. The arrival of Matic will give Pogba more freedom to go forward. Eric Bailly aside, United are struggling when it comes to their central defence, and even beyond. I think United will improve considerably, though, and may perhaps target the latter stages of the Champions League with the Premier League title just out of reach.

"He needs time. We are going to give him his time".

Mourinho was able to deliver three trophies for United in his debut campaign, while securing a return to Champions League competition. Even more unbelievable is how far that amount was surpassed.

Nobody doubts that United have a bit of work to do over the summer and beyond.




Giggs added: "There were too many home games last season where we didn't take our chances but it's not just down to Lukaku, the rest of the team need to be contributing as well". "(Luis) Suarez, (Andres) Iniesta, (Gerard) Pique, (Cristiano) Ronaldo, (Gareth) Bale, (Luka) Modric, Toni Kroos; there is only one so they can only play for one club, not for two clubs", said Mourinho. If Matic is a player brought for the present, Lindelof may well be one for the future. They should be at their peak but neither seem to have the football brain or ability to cut it, as well as their terrible injury records.

It may have taken a while for him to find his feet but Mkhitaryan now stands tall at Old Trafford.

Lukaku possesses the quality to spearhead a renewed push to break back into the top four, but whether it will be enough to mount a title challenge is another matter entirely. Questions have been asked about his mentality, and long-term injuries keep ruling him out.

It's a big season for United and Pogba, with Mourinho hoping his assertion comes true.

United's manager has always created his title-winning teams with the foundation of a solid defence.
