Alderweireld 'all day' over Maguire, says Man Utd legend Ferdinand

Mourinho has repeatedly expressed a desire to bring in additional signings throughout pre-season with a central defender top of his list.

But, the late juncture of the transfer window in England means that the Premier League heavyweights have been actively pursuing a move for Boateng, with Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire the other major targets.

Club legend Rio Ferdinand fears that Manchester United will not challenge for the Premier League title and their rivals Manchester City and Liverpool will finish above them in the upcoming campaign.

"I'm not confident", Mourinho said, when asked whether there would be more players arriving before the deadline.

While Liverpool have spent heavily in the transfer market, the Red Devils have only added Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant to their ranks.

Carrie Underwood pregnant with second child
She revealed that the timing was due to the baby! Underwood's next album, " Cry Pretty ", is due out September 14. Some fans were upset about her comments, and felt they were insensitive to those with struggling with fertility.

On the eve of the new season, which starts with United's clash against Leicester, Mourinho also claimed that finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, was "one of the greatest achievements" of his career. "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".

And Mourinho will have a meeting after training today with the players who have only just reported back for duty after their post World Cup breaks to see who feels fit enough to play at Old Trafford tomorrow.

"They return on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said.

"From what I hearing from the Everton end, they are concerned they won't get the player in the end because of Manchester United's interest, because of Lyon's interest". In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now. I repeat: "pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that".
