Jerome Boateng Personally Calls Jose Mourinho, Bad News For Man Utd Boss

Justin GreeneAug 10, 2018

Last season may have been United's highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired but the 19-point gap to runaway Premier League champions Manchester City underlined the improvements required.

Manchester United's hopes of reinforcing their squad before Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline appear to be over after José Mourinho said his latest information was that the club had been unable to secure any of their targets.

Jose Mourinho has taken aim at Liverpool and Tottenham on the eve of the new season, saying they "win nothing" but are painted as "serial winners" while his Manchester United get no credit.

Mourinho revealed he will be without six senior players for the game against Leicester.

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has rejected a move to Manchester United, according to several German outlets which report he called Jose Mourinho to inform him of the decision.

"They return on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said. Alisson, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri were all signed while Naby Keïta completed his move to Anfield a year after an agreement was reached with RB Leipzig.

In successive transfer windows, the Merseyside club has broken the world transfer fee record for both a goalkeeper and a defender.

Jimenez joined Wolves on loan from Benfica this summer, with the club having an option to buy him.

Tottenham Hotspur must not be satisfied with qualifying for the Champions League and have to mount a more serious challenge in the Premier League and for other trophies, manager Mauricio Pochettino has said.

Indeed, players who are free agents can also be signed up until the August 31 deadline, meaning the Seasiders and Town will have no need to stress if they can't bring in any new faces before the August 9 window closes.

"As a manager, you want your team to entertain".

With £179 million spent on new players this summer, the expectations are nothing short of ending the 28 year long Premier League title drought.

"Back home with the two stars", the midfielder wrote, presumably referring to the second World Cup title he helped France lift this summer.

A club-record fee of 20 million pounds was also splashed on powerful Spanish winger Adama Traore and versatile Belgian global Leander Dendoncker was snapped up from Anderlecht.
