Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Bayern Munich's Jérôme Boateng are also claimed to be on Mourinho's radar, despite contrasting World Cup performances for Colombia and Germany respectively. He said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

While United and other Premier League teams in England will not be able to bring in players after August 9, they can still sell players to other teams around Europe until August 31.

The United boss confirmed that Antonio Valencia has been ruled out with a calf injury that he picked up in pre-season while Sergio Romero is still recovering from knee surgery that he sustained before the World Cup.

Jose Mourinho selected a youthful squad to take to America after a number of players were missing due to the World Cup.

The 2018-19 Premier League season began on Friday with a single match.

United went on to win the match and give their season a flying start after a summer of reported misery at Old Trafford. At the other end, Pogba played in Alexis Sanchez who squared for Juan Mata, but his effort was deflected wide, via the arm of Wes Morgan, before substitute Vardy pressured Shaw into a mistake and crossed for Iheanacho, but De Gea saved down low.

"No miracles. The players with a proper pre-season are fit and they are strong".

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".

The former Southampton left-back has endured a torrid time since arriving at Old Trafford but appears to have finally endeared himself to Jose Mourinho. He is a great manager, I really enjoyed working with him.

"I think what Jose Mourinho saw and what all of us saw in the summer was Paul Pogba smashing the middle of the France changing room, calling on the rest of the players, demanding more from them".

The Red Devils haven't won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson got his hands on his 13th an final top-flight crown. Can Paul Pogba get the best out of Paul Pogba?

Matteo Darmian then 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.
