Manchester United lack mad dogs with spirit - Jose Mourinho

Manchester United's French midfielder Paul Pogba is hugged by Southampton's Italian striker Manolo Gabbiadini during the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Manchester United at St Mary's Stadium in Southamp

From a pragmatic standpoint, and one that shouldn't prove too costly after Robben leaves the Bavarians for free upon his contract expiration, this could be a transfer that could rectify one glaring issue now blighting the Red Devils.

Mourinho has been linked with a move for a defender after missing out in the summer, but warned supporters it may not happen - in part because he believes United are not able to dominate the transfer market as they did in the past.

For everyone other than United fans, anyway. "And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you". I hope you can interpret it in the right way.

Hazard, who came up through the ranks at White Hart Lane and won the UEFA Cup in 1984 with Tottenham, has told Alderweireld he would be a fool to ditch Spurs for Manchester United at the moment.

"With all respect, Tottenham is an fantastic club but I think everybody would say yes".

The result is that unlike with their rivals, United are finding few options to replace their departing stars, which the players are fully aware of. Dele Alli, [Christian] Eriksen, Son [Heung-min]?

"Can we go there and bring the guys here? No". So who is more powerful now?

Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury bout ends in a controversial draw
Fury appeared to be knocked out cold in the final round before somehow rising in time to continue. The 'Gypsy King " has returned'. "We're both warriors.

A third consecutive Premier League game without a win leaves United trailing in City's wake.

"Football changes", the Portuguese said.

"It's more hard to buy players of a high, high, high level. I think they are better than many men", the United boss added.

"It is more hard to make the team better and stronger with buying".

"Players are being allowed to run them down because the club isn't in a position of strength, then they are having to overpay". I need to sell.

"It is hard, so we do what we can".

Obafemi is set to face a Manchester United who start with only one recognised centre-half.
