Fred flattered by Manchester United interest

He wants his full team.

"The players that we have bought one is a goalkeeper cover, another one is a 19-year-old kid".

Leicester City are set to make Harry Maguire one of the highest paid players at the club in order to try to fend off interest from Manchester United according to reports.

The Portuguese boss expressed his hopes of signing two new recruits after United's 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in the pre-season International Champions Cup last weekend in the United States but now says one addition seems more probable.

"I don't know how long he will be out for", he said.

"I'm not a big fan of one player starting the season with one club and then a couple of weeks later the window is open, he moves to another club and he plays against his former club - I really don't like that".

"It's not like the gaffer to make an oversight in his match preparations, so it seemed odd that he would inadvertently have played each of us almost 235 miles out of position", Mata continued.

But a particular focus of Mourinho's ire has been the World Cup, which he claims has decimated his squad - despite the numbers not backing him up.

However the Foxes refused to be rolled over having already lost star man Riyad Mahrez, and with the clock ticking on this summer's 9 August deadline, the Manchester club could face a real challenge to get hold of a partner for Eric Bailly.

"I agree that when the season starts the transfer window closes", said Mourinho.

Since joining from Torino in 2015, Darmian has made 85 appearances for the Red Devils, but featured just eight times in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho's team last term.

With Alderweireld's contract due to expire next summer, Manchester United will be hopeful of signing him on a reduced fee, but Tottenham will be well aware of the implications of selling him to a direct Premier League title rival.

"You look to other countries and the countries with lots of players in the World Cup, they start later. The Premier League could and should do that".

Manchester City, too, have suffered from a weakened squad for their summer friendly schedule, with 16 players enjoying post-World Cup breaks - but Pep Guardiola has been predictably more upbeat about the prospect of blooding youngsters in the club's friendly games.
