Shaw gets first career goal as Manchester United beat Leicester

Shaw gets first career goal as Manchester United beat Leicester

Another Frenchman who actually had no pre-season, Paul Pogba, could be on the bench for United in their season opener against Leicester on Friday, despite returning to training just this week.

But RMC says Pogba has now put talk of a move to bed by vowing to stick around in Manchester until the end of the current campaign.

For now, though, expect to see Pogba at Old Trafford at least for the first half of the upcoming season.

Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic are all injured, while Jose Mourinho will check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup.

Manchester United midfielder Alexis Sanchez has urged his side to sign more quality players so that they can challenge for titles this season. And I think that's it.

However, with the Premier League closing its window for incomings at 17:00 BST on Thursday - significantly earlier than Europe's other major leagues for the first time this year - Mourinho is under the impression United's business for 2018 is done.

They got the three points and most of their shots were on target but United still looked bad in the final third for most of the match.

'And of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup - because it's something that, in a competition like that, every player trains a lot - and he was very confident.

"We played well in periods against a good team that invested more than us", he said.

Barcelona have until 31 August to buy players, but understand that, with the Premier League transfer window now closed, they will probably need to wait longer to try to negotiate for Pogba.

"We don't have a penalty-taker, it's how we feel, and I made a decision to take it", Pogba told Sky Sports.

"We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.

The biggest news is World Cup victor Paul Pogba being named as captain; whether this is a permanent decision remains to be seen.

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands.

"But you don't win anything with second and with Liverpool and Man City looking stronger than ever, I worry for them", he said.

According to the Daily Mirror, United chiefs have told Mourinho that the club needs to be more like their neighbours - both on and off the pitch.

"I don't want to speak too soon after one game but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world", he said.
