Manchester United vs Leicester City

Deadline day round-up: Kovacic in at Chelsea, all quiet at Manchester United

Liverpool look like the big winners of the window as they have emerged as second favourites for the title behind champions Manchester City after doing their business early in splashing over £170 million on Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Fresh from a well-deserved break after winning the World Cup with France, Pogba has linked up again with his United team-mates at the Aon Training Complex this week.

He said: 'Manchester United have to go out with the intention of winning everything that's put before them.

According to the latest reports from the Express, Mourinho had told his close companions at Old Trafford that he wanted to let Pogba leave the club this summer.

Manchester United might have purposefully denied Jose Mourinho his wish of a new centre-back in the hope that they can drive him out of the Old Trafford hot-seat.

Leicester manager Claude Puel: "We lost Riyad Mahrez, who was a very valuable player for us, so it was important to keep our best players and have good additions to the squad".

The centre-back discussion has only become an issue this summer, and the club have felt that the options open to them have not warranted the investment they would have required.

How Mourinho reacts from now will be dictated to some extent by results, but the key objectives at the turn of the year have all been fulfilled as far as the club are concerned.

Internally, the greatest frustration for Mourinho has been waiting for the return of those players who had the longest World Cup campaigns.

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight.

"It's time just to say "tomorrow we have a Premier League match" and we have to play to win it".

"I do not trust that new players will arrive and I'm not confident in that so now I will only focus on the players I have", he said.
