Jose Mourinho To Make One More Signing – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is eager to make all the final touches to his team by Friday.
The club has been involved in a prolonged chase for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, but Mourinho refused to comment on the status of that deal.
“We are going to sign one more player for sure,” Mourinho told BT Sport after Wayne Rooney’s testimonial match on Wednesday night. “I don’t want to speak about Paul (Pogba) because he is a Juventus player and I don’t like other managers to speak about my players. I don’t speak about their players.
“But the reality is we are going to sign one more player. The market closes, as you know, August 31 so we have plenty of time to do that, but I’d like to do it before the Premier League starts.”
United’s next match is the Community Shield against defending League champions Leicester City on Sunday, before kicking off their league campaign away at Bournemouth the next weekend.
