Mourinho: Neymar's €222m move changed the market

Mourinho: Neymar's €222m move changed the market

The Portuguese was openly critical of Shaw's work rate during the latter stages of the 2016/17 campaign and, despite keeping him at the club over the summer, has not been offered a new long term deal.

Dimitar Berbatov won two Premier League titles with Manchester United.

Romelu Lukaku has scored four goals in as many appearances after joining from Everton for £75million, helping to solve the chronic attacking woes that hampered Mourinho's men last term.

"I think Real Madrid [in the UEFA Super Cup] was too early for him", said Mourinho last month.

Presenting executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward with his carefully prepared list of transfer targets, he was instructed to sit tight until the end of summer.

Affects momentumCan Manchester United keep their run of victories going after the worldwide break? "I think we're missing a few vital - I think we need, maybe, one more striker", he said.

Mourinho may be patting himself on the back a bit here but what he says is completely true.

Task Force One prepping for Irma deployment
The task force found out Monday that some of its members would be activated by FEMA to assist the local crews in San Juan. One of two teams with Indiana Task Force 1 that was sent to help with Hurricane Harvey is back home tonight.

Compare that to just three finishes outside of the top two in the Premier League era from 1992/93 to 2012/13 and it makes for dreary reading.

The Times, as per the Liverpool Echo, have reported that Mourinho has now had his say on how much he thinks Coutinho is worth. "I enjoy that. I know from when I first came here that the big thing for us is to see how players are settling and what difficulties they are having". The victory proved an important one as the Reds kept pace with then pace-setters Arsenal, before eventually overhauling them in May to finish the Premier League season as champions.

"Which played more quality football?"

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has provided five assists in his first three Premier League games this season.

While Neymar has begun in vibrant fashion at P.S.G., both Matic and Lukaku have also been influential for a United side that leads the Premier League after three games with a flawless record of nine points.

Ten take-ons completed in three games are also indication of Matic's ability to act as an extra playmaker if required.

Praising United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward for predicting the market surge, Mourinho told The Times: "I think we were very clever".
