Man United vs Leicester City, Premier League

Manchester United boss Mourinho: Finishing behind City feels like one of my best achievements

The u'sually busy Manchester clubs were relatively quiet this summer and Manchester United, in particular, had a really disappointing transfer window.

Liverpool have spent over £170m on four signings while Manchester City broke their transfer record with the £60m signing of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester.

The interior designers recruited into The Theatre of Dreams have obviously been more productive than chairman Ed Woodward this season in giving United a makeover, and the results are sure to make the rest of the Premier League green with envy, radiating class and sophistication.

He also claims the Red Devils are in disarray in regards to tactics and Mourinho knowing his best team - the complete opposite to Pep Guardiola's champions.

"Last season they were runners-up in the league and FA Cup runners-up and okay, that's not good enough for Manchester United but I don't think it's as bad as people have painted it".

They launched a late £18million bid for Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin, but the Uruguay defender agreed a new contract in Spain.

"Equally, it appears to have removed the element of panic-buying, whereby a club may have a poor start to the season and think "we've got to go out and spend to safeguard our future in the Premier League".

"Manchester United, you know the harmony isn't great there, but they've obviously got great players, a great manager".

Tottenham failed to bring in any signings and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has grown frustrated over a lack of new arrivals and a disappointing pre-season campaign.

"So I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see them challenging for the league this year".

"Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody".
