Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says one more signing will be fine

Jose Mourinho  Jose Mourinho has been the first to admit that Manchester United's pre-season preparation has been less than ideal

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.

His squad has become so stretched that just five senior outfield players - Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata, Luke Shaw, Fred and Matteo Darmian - were able to train at Barry University on Monday morning.

However, Mourinho has been heavily criticized by a lot of pundits and even the United faithful for the negative and defensive tactics that he prioritizes in most of his games.

Mourinho has been on a damage-limitation exercise for several days, claiming after a heavy 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in MI that they are merely trying to prevent "ugly results" because of how weak the teams he can put out have become. "I just want to help the club and my team-mates".

The 24-year-old spent eight years in Chelsea's academy before becoming a professional athlete and he saw enough from Mourinho during that time to convince him that the Portuguese tactician *does* care about young footballers.

However, despite the new season looming there is hope for the Red Devils yet; if United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is willing to open up the chequebook and Mourinho can sign several of these players, Man Utd may finally return to former glories.

He added at his press conference: "I wouldn't spend my money to see these teams".

"The gaffer's thought it all through and presented an itinerary that progresses seamlessly from Shamu's Happy Harbor to Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin with very little possibility for error".

"We basically have the same players".

Johnny Manziel joins a new team
The Alouettes can definitely use an answer at the QB position, since they've been through three different ones already. Vernon Adams Jr., Matthew Shiltz and Drew Willy are Montreal's QBs, all of whom have seen action this season.

"He wants even his players who have personal commitments to be here".

"It's our nature, you always want more for your team".

Premier League side Manchester United were unsuccessful in their plot to offload French forward Anthony Martial to PSG.

Dalot is one of the most highly rated full-backs in Europe.

Here's an example of some players showing off how they're now in high spirits- reserve goalkeeper Joel Pereira took to social media and posted a photo of summer transfer window addition Diogo Dalot flexing his muscles in a red United home kit with his name and #20 on it.

"They are a huge club and need to stay around the top of the table as well as challenging for other silverware".

"If I go, it is because the offer that another team makes will be good".

"That's why I spoke with the manager and also with the club about my future". From my position, the only thing I can give is my best in every training session and every game. "So we have to push ourselves and obligate ourselves to fight for titles". The aforementioned game versus Real Madrid then Bayern Munich on Saturday.

What I don't agree with is that the Premier League starts now.
