Mourinho Still After One More Player?

Their arrivals take the average height of United's players to around 6ft 1in, on a par with the tallest sides in the Premier League.

With one European trophy at the club already under his belt, it's clear Mourinho is after a spot in the Champions League final - and United's combined advantages mean many punters are watching the odds on which sides will reach the next final with interest. "They impress me. I think they are going to be a really hard team to beat".

Manchester United is considering paying £27 million for Paris Saint-Germain right-back Serge Aurier but he may not be eligible to enter the U.K., according to reports.

The team that played the first 45 minutes on Wednesday had three notable additions to the starting line-up that Valverde met in Washington DC last week.

Four further Premier League teams now have average heights of six feet (1.829 cm) or above - Watford, Stoke, West Ham and new boys Huddersfield.


Meanwhile, it has also been said that Jose is looking to build his team around Paul Pogba, and has huge faith in the Frenchman, and believes he could deliver goals and assists this season that would cause problems for opponents. With David de Gea retained and Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof added, an assault at the league is the minimum expectation.

"The manager just tells me to play my football and continue doing what I'm doing", Pereira said.

"To get three out of four I thank the club for that, I will be happier if they get me four of four but they did a great effort for me", Mourinho concluded.

United have a squad depth that can't be rivalled in the league meaning that there will be no issues of burnout granted we remain injury-free next season. "The plan is to have a good squad, not to have a good team".

The entire thing was clearly light hearted - the lady smiling as she clutched the bars of what looked like a bird cage - and Pogba saw the amusing side. I tried to give my best to control the game well, to give the game balance, and I think, for the first game, it was good for me.
