Alexis Sanchez Claims Manchester United 'Need To Sign' Big Name Players

Alexis Sanchez Claims Manchester United 'Need To Sign' Big Name Players

Matteo Darmian tested Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel at the near post early into a second half that United started with bundles of possession, but few clear-cut chances.

Both United and Leicester are "unlucky", Mourinho says, as they kick off the new 2018/19 campaign ahead of the rest of the opening Premier League weekend fixtures.

The 2018-19 Premier League season officially begins on Friday when title contender Manchester United welcomes Leicester City to Old Trafford. Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool did reach they Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid, while the Premier League's other biggest clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal, disappointed and missed out on the top four.

Jose Mourinho has cut a miserable figure all summer after only signing Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant. The idea was that Fred would be able to free up United's main man Paul Pogba, allowing him to roam more forward.

"I'm not confident", he told a pre-match news conference when asked whether another signing might be made.




"I said that during pre-season - it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane - but I repeat, pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work with".

Despite most experts saying the opposite, Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer has suggested that Mourinho's side will get closer to Manchester City this season. "They need to get a centre-back in", he said.

Coming in for a world record transfer fee of around £89 million, the World Cup victor took a while to get going back in Manchester, but he did help the club win both the League Cup and the Europa League in his first season back. One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie but the perception of people is that it's true.

"If I was an owner I'd be thinking you've had a lot of money for these players, you certainly don't fancy them and now you want a lot of money for someone else".

"In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now".
