José Mourinho does not expect any Manchester United deadline-day signings

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

United finished as runners-up last season, 19 points behind Manchester City, and Mourinho has already made it clear that his team needs more players if they are to overhaul their neighbours.

"They've got a manager in Jurgen Klopp who the players have got a lot of faith in and they've got fans who will keep this team going".

"This is the first time it wasn't like that and maybe in the future it will be revised, I will start the season with the players that I will have all year".

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

So welcome to the Premier League to the teenager who irons his own shirt.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic will all be unavailable for Friday's opener against Leicester.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues". I told that during pre-season.

"It 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".

Guardiola must be a little concerned about the inability to sign the central midfielder that he believed was a priority in May, but City's biggest issue might be their relative failure in last season's Champions League.
