Speaking at a news conference to preview Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester, Mourinho told reporters he does not expect any deadline-day activity at Old Trafford, despite also being linked to centre-backs Toby Alderweireld, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng.

Ian Wright has predicted Tottenham to finish outside of the top four in the new Premier League season, tipping them to make a slow start to the campaign.

Ferdinand also sympathised with the Manchester United youth players after Mourinho's scathing comments following their 4-1 pre-season defeat to Liverpool during their tour of America.
"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".
"I can understand some speculation about our player because he has good attributes, but I am happy to keep him and hopefully start a great season".
