Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea All Ready For Big Signings

United kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester tomorrow night (8pm).

Neville is quick to disabuse anyone of this notion, however lightly they cling to it.

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.

That felt like a reference to Liverpool but, more importantly for United, it was also an admission that it will need a dramatic improvement this season for his own team to bridge the gap. I do think they have one over on City.

The 24-year-old, who completed a switch to Liverpool this summer, told Sky Sports: "Manchester never showed any formal interest, they never made me an offer at all".

Their second Premier League title defence also came up empty in 2014-15, when they fell eight points short of Chelsea.

"The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and today after training I will speak with that group of players (back from the World Cup) because everybody is different, physically and mentally, to see how available they feel. They trained on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today, so you can imagine that they're not really fit and ready, but we have needs", said the boss of the quartet.

"I think back to back titles is an obsession for them".

United should be challenging.

Yet, a shortened window allied to the tight turnaround from the final stages of the World Cup just four weeks ago, left English clubs in a rush against time to get deals done and facing inflated fees when buying from Europe's other top leagues, where the window doesn't close till later this month.

Manchester United have a front six of Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial and Sanchez.

United have until 5 p.m on Thursday to add new players ahead of the start of the season.

"With Premier League clubs' aggregate revenues forecast to reach £5bn in 2018-19, clubs can well-afford to significantly invest in on-pitch talent in the quest for both success and survival".

Gary Neville was speaking to promote Cadbury as the official snack partner of the Premier League.
