Jose Mourinho: Man Utd boss 'not confident' of deadline day signing

But Mourinho admits he is not optimistic of getting a deal over the line before 5pm.

'My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second when I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, ' Mourinho said during today's press conference.

He said: "Signings? The information I have is no".

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Jose Mourinho has revealed that several key players will be missing in Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready.

Mourinho is also due to talk to four of his key World Cup stars today to discover whether they are able to play in the Leicester game, having only returned to training on Monday.

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

But former England manager Sam Allardyce has told them to sell the World Cup victor before 5pm today.

It was United boss Jose Mourinho who sold him to United, and the manager may be open to doing so again if it meant landing Alderweireld. The tactics to be changed in Championship Manager you can just press a button.

"He would have done that".

And plenty of pundits have already written off Man United's title chances before the season has even commenced.
