We're buying three more players - Guardiola

Ahead of their Premier League opener, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is confident his side can maintain his flawless second-season record.

Jose Mourinho is bracing himself to miss out on landing a fourth and final summer signing, with Manchester United likely to go into the new season without the winger they wanted.

"You can see more of what he has normally done before with Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku coming in, making sure that the spine of the team is really powerful and strong and has that physicality to deal with the Premier League season".

Mourinho has never failed to win the title in his second season at any of the major clubs he has managed, but he insisted Lukaku must get help from others with goalscoring.

"It was the proposal they presented me, this is a club with big ambition to win trophies this season".

Mourinho's starting line up could read: the ever reliable David De Gea in goal; Antonio Valencia offering strength and pace down the right -who Mourinho has recently rated claiming "there is no better right-back in football", - Eric Bailly and Lindelof playing as a solid pair in the centre and the technical Daley Blind at left-back.

However, the United manager is confident that his team can improve on that, having had a good pre-season and are well prepared.


"I scored a goal in that game against Venezuela and it was the first time that I celebrated with a gesture for my mother".

"I just think that he was very clear by showing that what he did previous year was not enough for him".

"It's my old club with my old fans and my old stadium, so probably I can not celebrate", he said.

Stopping short of a guarantee, Mourinho believes an encouraging pre-season and success in the Europa League last season can propel his side to further success. But I think it is unsustainable. The top seven, we are all in Europe. "At the same time, let's make a decision that will make us all happy".

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan. It is going to be the same for everybody.

West Ham United have spent big this summer, but they have been able to bring in four players with proven Premier League class. "We are involved in four competitions and step by step, match after match, we are going to fight".
