Jose Mourinho ‘not confident’ of deadline-day signings


"It was a very good Premier League game against a good team".

Chelsea was the league's biggest spenders in the summer transfer window. As the Portuguese manager enters his third season at Old Trafford, it feels as if he's already setting a path towards an exit in which he can say he was never given the money or quality of players to truly compete. Tottenham goes into the season banking on what it had past year, mainly Harry Kane, the World Cup's Golden Boot victor.

"Premier League clubs' gross player transfer expenditure of £1.2 billion continues to demonstrate the sheer purchasing power of the most commercially successful football league in the world".

"Last year was an incredible year for City, but the other teams have all strengthened and they will be confident going into the new season".

"He has a certain way of playing and last season they looked the best".

Preparing for their first Premier League campaign in four years, Fulham added five players, including midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa from Marseille, goalkeeper Sergio Rico from Sevilla and forward Luciano Vietto on loan from Atletico Madrid.

In Portugal recorded a new temperature record
Spanish emergency services said on Twitter that the fire had been contained but was not yet under control as of Sunday morning. In the longer term, the Met Office's analysis has suggested hot, dry conditions could return and continue into the autumn.

And if Klopp does not deliver a trophy this season and they don't progress into the latter rounds of the Champions League, then he may find it hard to hold on to his job.

Jose Mourinho took one last swipe at the Manchester United board before insisting that he would wait a few months before evaluating his side's title chances.

Last season's top-two teams spent nothing yesterday.

The club's owners have close links to super agent Jorge Mendes, who counts Cristiano Ronaldo as one of his clients, and a number of his players now turn out for the east Midlands side.

What they do have, however, is one of the best team spirits in the land. This season's window saw many high profile transfers and world record fee broken twice for a goalkeeper.

Yet Mina failed to impress in making just six appearances for Barca after joining from Palmeiras in January and the Catalan giants were keen to cash in on the 23-year-old, who cost just 11.8 million euros seven months ago. Ayew, who has 11 goals in 49 appearances for Ghana, scored 11 times for Swansea last season as he impressed in a struggling side.
