Pep Guardiola forecasts end to Manchester City spending spree

Man Utd Transfer News: Shaw and Rose swap report, done deal, Neville makes Chelsea claim

One of which was against West Ham, United's opponents on Sunday as the new Premier League season gets underway.

Mourinho won the league in his second seasons at Porto, Real Madrid and Inter Milan, as well as in both of his stints at Chelsea, but he expects this season's title race to be an almighty scrap.

Both north London sides will be tested from the off, with Arsenal kicking off the new season with the visit of Leicester City on Friday evening, and Spurs travelling to Rafa Benitez's Newcastle on Sunday.

We sat and endured the signings coming to the club, in time for our debut season at the London Stadium.

The expectation-the hope, the dread-had been for an almighty clash in Manchester, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola bringing the ferocity of their Spanish rivalry to the Premier League, matching competing ideologies against each other while trading barbs on an off-field propaganda war that would make the press-conferences almost as compelling as the football. Victor can play right-back and can play central midfield.

"He wants more at football's highest level, so we are having conversations and we are discussing the possibility of him staying with us for the second part of the season". "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces". He has joined on the cheap, and relatively unknown on English soil, but by the time the season is out, there will be widespread acclaim.

"It started with Real Madrid and Ronaldo going for £80 million and then Bale for £85 million and everything went more expensive". Will Lukaku score the goals? But it didn't quite work out like that: there was no Cottonopolis Clásico, there was no Rumble by the Irwell.

Jamie Vardy then capitalised on awful defending to twice put the Foxes ahead either side of Danny Welbeck's equaliser before Arsene Wenger sent on the cavalry.

After bolstering their squad, Guardiola's side - who came third last season - have been made favourites to win the title, but the City manager said he could cope with that burden. Lahm, Alaba and, to an extent, Dani Alves, were all adept at tucking inside and could operate almost as playmakers: Mendy, Walker and Danilo are not like that at all.

Jurgen Klopp has suggested that Liverpool will not let Philippe Coutinho leave to join Barcelona because it is too late in the transfer window to replace him.

Mourinho confirmed United are in talks to re-sign striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, following reports from Sky in Italy earlier this week.

Marc Albrighton served in a perfect ball from the left, curling a cross for Vardy, who capped the sequence against the run of play with his first goal of the season.

The lack of goals contributed to 10 league draws at Old Trafford that cost the club any chance of challenging Chelsea for the title.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the table in Mourinho's first term in charge as they effectively surrendered their remaining domestic fixtures in order to prioritise winning the Europa League.

The Foxes seem to have rediscovered stability under Craig Shakespeare, and go into the new season brimming with optimism and with no pressure on them.
