José Mourinho does not expect any Manchester United deadline-day signings

The transfer window may officially shut at 5pm on Thursday but Blackpool and Fleetwood can still be active in the transfer market thanks to an EFL rule.

Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign against Leicester City on Friday night.

Any hope with which Manchester United supporters woke up on transfer deadline day has quickly been quashed by Jose Mourinho.

Shearer said: It has been a long time since anyone won back-to-back titles but I think City will win the Premier League again because of Pep - he won't want their standards slipping. He was also asked a follow-up question to clarify that there would be no incomings or outgoings throughout the day.

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

"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

Sergio Romero, Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Matic are all injured for Leicester's visit, while Mourinho needs to check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup.

We are sure to see a number of huge deals go through today and we will be keeping you up to date with every single one of them no matter how big or small.

"The target is Leicester match and the tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button", he said. In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel".

The Red Devils coach has cut a sullen figure throughout pre-season with the former Chelsea boss unable to hide his dissatisfaction with Brazil worldwide midfielder Fred being his sides only high profile signing.
