Tottenham transfer news Man Utd may sacrifice Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling

According to the Argentinian manager, the whole transfer saga with Manchester United has been a load of smoke and mirrors, as the Belgian centre back is firmly staying with the Lilywhites.

Jose Mourinho has only spent £70m ahead of the 2018/19 season by bringing in Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant - the latter being a 35-year-old goalkeeper for £1.5m.

While United and other Premier League teams in England will not be able to bring in players after August 9, they can still sell players to other teams around Europe until August 31.

Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race.

The attorney also said in the statement that Courtney Smith is grateful for the support she's received and shot down some instances of "misinformation that has been circulating".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insisted he is happy with his squad heading into the Premier League season, despite the club's failure to meet his transfer demands. It is a squad littered with exceptional talent, including David De Gea, Romelu Lukaku, World Cup victor Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester United begins its season off on the right foot, with World Cup-winner Paul Pogba scoring alongside Romelu Lukaku.

But an inconsistent defense may get a test from England global striker Jamie Vardy, though the Foxes did lose their best player - Riyad Mahrez - in the summer as he was sold to Manchester City.

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 those players who had the longest World Cup campaigns.

The incident came after Szabo punched a resident who came outside amid the ruckus, according to The Post , which led Jones to act. Jones turned himself into police Thursday afternoon and was arraigned Thursday night at Queens County Criminal Court.

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

"But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same". Having left the club's United States tour to attend the birth of his child, the French forward will now "start again", Mourinho said, with pre-season training.

"It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different".
