How Man United can compete for trophies - Sanchez

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement back in 2013, but they did win the Europa League and League Cup in Jose Mourinho's first campaign in charge.

Boateng of Bayern Munich is said to be interested in a move to Old Trafford, but that would only be a season-long loan from the Bundesliga club.

The Manchester United boss cut a frustrated figure through the window as Ed Woodward failed to land his top targets.

Showing few signs of rust despite only returning to training this week, the World Cup victor, wearing the captain's armband, impressed in possession and without it, leading by example and keeping his cool from the spot.

United kick start their Premier League season tomorrow night against Leicester at Old Trafford, where they could go up against Maguire.

Mourinho spent £68 million to bring in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant this summer but admitted during the preseason tour of the USA he wanted two more additions.

However, clubs in the Premier League can still still sell players or send them out on loan to non-Premier League clubs.

"I don't want to speak too soon after one game but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world", he said.

Midfielder Fred arrived for big money but he was the only major new signing as Mourinho's appeals for fresh defensive blood went unheeded.

"I'm not confident", he told a pre-match news conference when asked whether another signing might be made.

"But it's the same conversation as with [Ashley] Young, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Jesse] Lingard, it's the same".

"If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour".

"I just don't see United getting closer to City". One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie but the perception of people is that it's true.

"I had only two options, Scott (McTominay) or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".

"In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now".
