Fulham leads final day of transfer spending frenzy

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

According to Deloitte's spokesperson, Tim Bridge, just 14 per cent of that figure, which is £175m, was spent on transfers between two Premier League clubs - an unforeseen outcome of the league's window, closing before the rest of Europe.

"I have to focus on the players that are available".

'But looking at the squad Jurgen Klopp has assembled, I will be amazed if Liverpool don't push them very, very close.

Mourinho had warned it would be a "difficult season" if United did not make any more acquisitions and it now looks like his side will miss out. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

United had been hoping to sign a centre-back before the deadline but hope has faded in recent days. "That is my experience at Barcelona and Bayern Munich".

Wright said in his column for The Sun: 'Of course Manchester City are the team to beat again and, of course, finishing above Pep Guardiola's men is far easier said than done.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic will all be unavailable for Friday's opener against Leicester. "They trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready".

"[Alexis is] more than ready but you can not have the players who arrived only last Monday after the World Cup semi-finals or final and three weeks' holiday". "When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is hard to believe that we finished second, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners".

United's all-time leading goalscorer told Sky Sports: "I think it will be hard after the season they had past year".

"It is hard to believe that we finished second because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.
