Claude Puel plays Harry Maguire trick on deadline day

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazil global Fred, FC Porto teenager Diogo Dalot and experienced Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant this summer.

Several transfer targets were identified but failed to materialise and it seems the United boss doesn't fancy his chances of closing the considerable gap on Champions City with the pool of players left at Old Trafford.

The Chilean worldwide cited Spanish side Barcelona who signed Vidal from Bayern Munich in the close season.

"He had the first three or four days of training and the first couple of matches against the American team and the Mexican team, where he played 40 or 50 minutes". Along with the new signings, nearly 9 players have left the club with key player Riyadh Mahrez joining reigning champions Manchester City, Robert Huth being released and record signing Ahmed Musa leaving for Al-Nassr to name a few. In the campaign prior to that, United made complete mincemeat of their opponents by beating them 4-1.

"I focus just on what we have and we go with everything we have to the first match".

United contacted Atletico Madrid about Diego Godin but it quickly became evident that the move was a no-go, while an official offer was not made for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld. "You will see which teams are candidates". He likes to paint pictures, I'm painting a picture as, you need to work with what you have now.

Leicester manager Claude Puel must similarly decide whether to include Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed". If it's not going well, though, I don't want to hear the moaning and groaning and I am sure the United fans don't want to hear it as well.

"It is hard for me to understand, we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"They are bigger, they are better and their standards are higher than [just] being in the top four". Reportedly the money was too much, but not by a great deal.

Fair comment, or agenda-driven Manchester United vitriol?

Now it looks like no new arrivals will be heading to Old Trafford in this window.unless Mourinho has something up his sleeve.
