Jose Mourinho explains why he will refuse to sell Eric Bailly

Jose Mourinho explains why he will refuse to sell Eric Bailly”

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred arrived for £52m at the start of the window and has been the club's only major signing of the summer, before young FC Porto right-back Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant followed him in joining.

"I am confident I will get one, but I think two I am not going to get - which is not a drama", Mourinho told beIN Sports. Besides him, United are also understood to hold an interest in Spurs' Toby Alderweireld, although the final transfer value remains a concern in signing either player.

The Portuguese tactician cut a frustrated and dejected figure in his post-match press conference as he discussed various topics including transfer targets and the squad available to him in the USA for the International Champions Cup.

The Swiss global had only joined up with the squad four days earlier following his post-World Cup break but slotted in seamlessly in Ann Arbor.

In addition, the signings aspect also has him concerned and he is using each press conference to send messages to Ed Woodward.

"Maybe I'll get one more if that's possible".

Jose Mourinho admits he would not have paid to watch his weakened Manchester United side on their pre-season tour of the United States.

"This summer, no. I don't see the need", Klopp said when asked about whether he would look to bolster his back four by dipping into the market.

"I am not a big fan of some player to start the Premier League with one club and a couple of weeks later the transfer window is still open and he moves to another club and he plays against his former club".

"They would like to have here Golden Ball victor Luka [Modric], but it is what it is and it's hard for every club with lots of players in national team".

Alexis was one of the few senior players on show for United, with a number of their star names still absent as they return from post-World Cup holidays.

"I would like two more players. We might tweak the format, but it's not a World Cup year, everyone is excited to come and I don't think we will have anything near the same problem".

'When he saw that Smalling in the warm-up was leaving, he decided by himself he did not want another kid on the pitch, ' Mourinho said.

'Alexis is the only attacking player that we have.
