first_imgJose Mourinho has attacked Manchester United’s lack of transfer activity this summer.The Red Devils boss revealed he is desperate for two more signings but expects it is likely he only gets one. 2 Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January moving on Leicester defender Harry Maguire has been linked with a move to the club, as has Barcelona centre-back Yerry Mina, but Mourinho is pessimistic about the remainder of the transfer window.“I would like to have two more players,” Mourinho said after his side’s 4-1 defeat to Liverpool.“I think I am not going to have two. I think it’s possible I am going to have one. It’s possible.“I gave a list to the club of five names a few months ago and I wait to see if it is possible to have one of these players.“If it is possible it is possible, if it is not possible it is not possible. If it is possible, good, if it is not possible we keep fighting, working and believing in the players that we have.”Mourinho believes United will be ‘in trouble’ at the start of the Premier League season given the amount of World Cup absentees and injuries during pre-season. Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti His current squad were dominated by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in their International Champions Cup fixture and Mourinho stressed the weakness of his side.“The reinforcements are [Paul] Pogba, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Victor] Lindelof, [Marcus] Rashford, [Jesse] Lingard, [Nemanja] Matic, [Antonio] Valencia. These are reinforcements. This is not our team.“We started the game with almost half of the players who are not even going to belong to our squad on August 9. They will not be here.“This is not our squad. Reinforcements, you mean players that I would like to buy, that’s another thing, but this is not my squad. This is not even half my squad, or 30% of it. So don’t look to this.“I just hope the boys on deserved holidays take care of themselves a little bit and somebody wants to do what [Marcus] Rashford and [Phil] Jones do, which is to be back a little bit earlier to try and help the team because for the beginning of the season we are going to be in trouble.” targets 2 targets Mourinho addresses the media IN DEMAND RANKED center_img LATEST LIVING THE DREAM Mourinho says his side could be in trouble REVEALED Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star LATEST TRANSFER NEWS Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summerlast_img
