While the rest of Europe is still enjoying the frenzy of the summer transfer window, the window has closed in England ahead of the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

Jose Mourinho feels his team braved hard circumstances to get a fine start to Manchester United's 2018-19 Premier League season on Friday. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

Jose Mourinho has repeatedly expressed his desire to strengthen Manchester United's defence after they finished second in the Premier League last term.

United have spent somewhere in the region of £400m since José Mourinho took over at Old Trafford, with very little to show for it but a poundshop treble.

"Other teams go up and down, we want to try to win one point more than the others". Martial in the last 20 minutes could have given us the second goal but I couldn't make that change.

"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".

"We could not spend more than we have done this season".

Manchester United have been hit by injuries throughout the pre-season tour of the United States and there are plenty of first-team stars that have only just returned from their holidays due to exploits in the World Cup this summer.

"They return on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said. The players gave everything, they gave what they had. In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now.

"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".

"I know there has been a lot of talk about pre-season in the press but I am sure behind the scenes, Jose has been giving them the right amount of work".
