Jose Mourinho lists second-place finish among 'greatest achievements'

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Chelsea have become well-known for flying out of the traps, but last season the Blues suffered a shock opening day defeat at the hands of Burnley.

Julien Laurens believes Paul Pogba wants to stay at Manchester United despite reported bids from Juventus and Barcelona.

Jose Mourinho has taken aim at Liverpool and Tottenham on the eve of the new season, saying they "win nothing" but are painted as "serial winners" while his Manchester United get no credit.

However, they are yet to receive any encouragement from the Uruguay global that he would consider a move to Old Trafford and expect him to sign a new deal with Atletico.

However, the North London club are the only team in the Premier League not to make a signing so far this summer and the transfer window shuts tomorrow (Thursday) at 5pm.

Manchester City want better performances, not more points - Pep Guardiola
Manchester United will kick off the new Premier League season when they take on Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night. They argued that they have to sell players for financial reasons if they fail to qualify for Europa or Champions League.

To join them, he goes for Cardiff and Huddersfield. Sources have told ESPN FC that Godin's sister is in the Spanish capital to negotiate a new deal for him.

United have endured a hard summer transfer window as they have tried and failed to sign a host of defensive targets, with Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Leicester's Harry Maguire among the names on their wish-list.

Although there has been speculation about a deal for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld, there has been no offer from United while Leicester remain determined to retain England global Harry Maguire, who has four years left on his contract.

Mourinho warned United could face a "difficult" season if the club failed to sign new players, but he is insisting he will be content to work with the players in his squad in comments that may not reveal his true feelings after a disappointing few weeks of transfer business.

"Harry is happy to remain with us. He came back with [Leicester and England teammate] Jamie [Vardy] with a smile, with freshness". It is not serious. Teams that just wanted it more could actually hurt us. "We lost Riyad Mahrez [to Manchester City], who was a very valuable player for us, so it was important to keep our best players and have good additions to the squad". "We realise this is precious and we want to hold on to it".
