Jose Mourinho: This is the ideal habitat for young players

Jose Mourinho is "confident" of bringing one more player to Manchester United before the transfer window closes for business.

The wheels have threatened to come off during the club's pre-season tour of the United States, with the Portuguese becoming increasingly outspoken and irritated by a variety of matters.

Dalot is one of just three signings for United this summer, along with Brazilian midfielder Fred and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Mourinho had been banking on starting the Premier League season with a back four of Valencia, Shaw, Bailly and Smalling, but all are now injured or carrying knocks, throwing his preparations into disarray ahead of the home game against Leicester on August 10.

"We have the situation with Matteo Darmian, he's playing now every game but probably he's going to leave, and then some kids, they're probably going on loan". We started the game with nearly half of the players not going to belong to our squad.

Although the United manager did gripe about the early start to the Premier League campaign, especially in a World Cup year.

"I think two is not what I will get".

"I'm confident I will get one, but I think two I'm not going to get, which is not a drama", said Mourinho.

Mourinho - who having guided United to Europa League and League Cup success in his first season - delivered nothing last term.

According to Manchester Evening News, Jose said to beIN SPORTS: "The context is completely different because the World Cup takes one month and for a month the players are in a closed camp, isolated from the external world, isolated from commercial compromises and isolated from every possible influence".

The club's inconsistent performances has led Mourinho to express his frustration on multiple occasions throughout the USA tour, including criticising individual players and Manchester United's lack of transfer activity. "I agree with that.

The Premier League could and should do that".

"First of all, I have to respect what my manager said, because he knows what he's talking about", said Herrera.

"You look at other countries with lots of players in the World Cup they start later - Spain and Italy starts later".
