Leicester fans blast Daniel Amartey after defeat to Man United

Toby Alderweireld

United's performance on Friday failed to build on Paul Pogba's early penalty, as they were dominated by Leicester for spells before Luke Shaw scored an all-important second goal in the closing minutes.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barcelona and Juventus are both interested in signing the midfielder after Mourinho claimed the £89 million man had played well for France during the World Cup because he was fully focused on his football.

But RMC says Pogba has now put talk of a move to bed by vowing to stick around in Manchester until the end of the current campaign.

There is little time for the Premier League's stars to shake off their World Cup hangover as the chase to catch champion Manchester City begins in earnest on Friday.

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.

"I think they are two players who have quality and they could help me a lot".

Despite the poor pre-season, United will be starting as favourites later today. He is an example of the type of players we need to sign in order to win trophies and compete at the highest level.

"We played well in periods against a good team that invested more than us", he said.

Dallas County Reports First West Nile Virus Death Of The Year
The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has recorded its first human case of West Nile virus this year. The Health Department wants to remind the public that the virus is present and has been around for many years.

Victory in the Premier League opener was a much-needed shot in the arm after weeks of doom and gloom, with summer target Harry Maguire's inclusion in the Foxes' line-up serving as a reminder of what they missed.

United is further hamstrung with a host of key players, including Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, who were involved in the later stages of the World Cup, limiting their preseason preparations.

"For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought was possible".

And his next comment has already led to backlash from Manchester United fans on social media after Mourinho said finishing behind City wasn't such a bad thing....

Mourinho believes United should be content with a win over a side who spent more money than them in the close season.

"I made a choice to try and finish the game", he said.

It's reported by The Sun that United were actually prepared to shell out £100m for French World Cup victor Varane, but Real Madrid were not interested in selling.
