Emery set for baptism of fire as Arsenal host Man City

United are set to open the new season at home to Leicester on Friday, with it imperative that they get off to a flying start.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today, so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed", Mourinho said.

However, after seven years in Germany the 29-year-old has made it clear he's ready for a fresh challenge this summer and Kicker reported earlier this week that Manchester United and Arsenal are among the clubs showing a keen interest in signing Boateng.

The Gunners did not make a move for Croatia defender Domagoj Vida, despite rumours to the contrary.

Jose Mourinho is growing increasingly concerned that Manchester United will not make any more signings before Thursday's deadline, sources have told ESPN FC.

"I focus on just what we have, and we go with everything we have to the first match".

Barcelona's Yerry Mina was linked with a switch to Old Trafford but financial demands from agents have ruled out any swoop for the 23-year-old, who impressed for Colombia during the World Cup, with Everton now favourites to sign him.

Scholes, though, fears that even a morale-boosting win over the Foxes will do little for the Red Devils' cause in the long run, with rival outfits looking stronger and more likely title contenders.

The report also claimed that United boss, Jose Mourinho views Leicester City's Harry Maguire as a gamble and would prefer having Alderweireld in his backline. United had apparently only been interested in a loan move, given that the defender has a awful injury record, but that just begs the question: Why did they want him at all?

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give [their] best", Mourinho said.

True, he was named Leicester's player of the year last season, so it wasn't as if his performances in Russian Federation were a fluke. Put it this way: I hope so, because if he is still there, it means they have been successful and won something.

From his first weeks in Manchester, Mourinho insisted Sanchez's struggles would be forgotten when he hit the ground running after a full pre-season under his belt.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth previous year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.

"Eventually Axel said: "Do me a favour and finish it as quickly as possible because I really want to go to Dortmund".
