Alexis Sanchez wants Manchester United to target experienced players like Arturo Vidal

Mourinho was desperate to add another centre-back to his squad this summer, but the transfer window closed on Thursday with Brazilian midfielder Fred the only player with hopes of being a regular starter joining the club.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his worldwide future.

"I don't know what Ed Woodward and Mourinho have been doing, but I am sorry, this is not the Man United I know of recent years, sitting on their hands, watching other player and other clubs spend money".

"If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour".

"We will see what happens in his future but I am happy to keep Harry with us and I'm happy with his attitude in general".

Mourinho was left frustrated in his attempts to bolster United's squad ahead of the season, as the club failed to bring in a central defender, with a late bid for Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin proving fruitless. Particularly as a manager, for irrespective of who has done it, you're going to be responsible.

"He had nine days of pre-season where no training, no football, absolutely nothing".

However his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho has appeared strained at times and after some comments from his manager after France's World Cup win it was reported that Pogba wanted to leave.

After a dismal two years in charge of United, Mourinho has come under fire from the Old Trafford faithful, with his dour tactics drawing criticism from fans and commentators alike.

"A lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".

United voted against the early closing of the transfer window when it was put to the Premier League past year and feel that decision has been vindicated by the prices being quoted to them by European clubs trying to take advantage of the situation.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer.

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho.

"I will focus on the players that are available, so I am not even thinking about that list of injured players I gave you, (Nemanja) Matic, (Antonio) Valencia and so on".
