Tottenham Hotspur Summer Transfer Window Synopsis, Analysis, Grade

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane

He added: "When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don't think they [United] have the quality of those two teams at the minute".

Pogba has at times endured a hard relationship with United boss Mourinho.

But United are even more shorthanded by the quick turnaround between the World Cup and the start of the new season.

Manchester United have to defy their own coach José Mourinho's fears of a season of doom and gloom when they kick off the Premier League campaign against Leicester City tomorrow.

Whatever the explanation, the lack of new faces compounds issues surrounding the United squad heading into the Premier League season.

Spurs failed to make an addition to their squad over the summer, meaning they will go into the new season with the same squad that finished the last one.

Speaking to reporters (via the Mirror), Ferdinand said: "Harry Maguire did great at the World Cup, but of the players potentially available he would not be my first choice".

Deadline day round-up: Kovacic in at Chelsea, all quiet at Manchester United
I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane . It's time just to say "tomorrow we have a Premier League match" and we have to play to win it".

The 19-time Premier League champions are among a raft of clubs who use the transfer window to give young players and those on the fringes of the senior side regular first team opportunities.

"We believe a lot in our players and there's no point now to say 'why not repeat a similar season like a year ago or the season before, and with more experience?'"

However, there has been little other late movement from the top six clubs with Mourinho in particular frustrated at missing out on a host of targets to bolster his options in central defence.

"But he's got great experience, he's been at top clubs, he's been in hard positions before, he's in a hard position now I think, but he needs to try to find a way to get out of it".

"And can they play in a style that can keep their fans happy?" "Will it happen? I don't know but we believe we can do it". Sometimes players and their entourage, they make mistakes in the way they choose a club to be loaned.

He needs to get off to a good start this season, there's no doubt about that.

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