Manchester United in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic over Old Trafford return

"I don't think I'm in a position of crying, moaning, protesting".

Both Lukaku and Matic represented more than just regular signings - by hijacking Chelsea's bid for the Belgian striker and then weakening the defending champions existing squad by securing Matic, Mourinho sent out a warning sign to the rival clubs and further underlined his title-winning aspirations.

'I thought about Matic but I never like to go to players where I think it's an impossible mission (to sign them).

"In my other clubs what I had was more players scoring goals", he said.

PROMOTED SIDES Of course, United will be joined by three new teams in the division this term, as Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion both gained automatic promotion, while Huddersfield Town joined the top-flight via the play-offs. The way I know him and the way he knows me.

"He's injured, he needs time to recover". He's not a young guy who comes from another country.

Gabriel made an immediate splash upon arriving from Palmeiras in January, scoring three goals in his first two Premier League starts and pushing the Argentina worldwide to the bench. The attack-minded Manchester City did struggle defensively when they played away from home last season. "We will maybe change one important player".

"I really like his method of training, his motivation and his passion". We are going to be playing against teams that are better teams than us. After that match Mourinho said the midfielder "is a player and a person I like" who "will always have my protection".

But beneath the unsmiling eyes shone an optimism about the season which was hard to hide from the questioning media.

Security Council vote to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang earlier this week as an "achievement for his diplomacy". He continued, "I don't know what he's saying and I've long ago given up trying to interpret what he says".

Glass half-empty: A team of giants playing boring but effective football might bring home some silverware but it's just not very Manchester United.

The most important signing of the Jose Mourinho era at Chelsea, Drogba joined from Marseille in 2004 and once he established himself he was the ideal modern target man.

"We have a football club much better equipped, much better organised in the areas which support the first-team squad". "I'd say seven teams to fight for the title and 20 teams to fight for the victory every weekend, every match".

"I have a feeling that we will score early and get a good win against Brighton on Saturday".

The pair drew 1-1 in the Premier League at Old Trafford, before United won 4-1 in the League Cup three days later.

"The thing I have is to work every day like I do".

"I just think naturally a manager in the second season knows the players better, knows the club better". Give everything. And then normally the results are a good outcome of that work.

We had lots of dominance at home, we had lots of chances, we had lots of matches where the result could or should be 2-0 or 3-0 and in the end was 1-1.
