Romelu Lukaku scores against Real Madrid last Tuesday night.

Lukaku isn't the only player being reunited Mourinho, who also convinced former club Chelsea to sell Nemanja Matic to United.

"It's the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers".

"I'm happy with the club's efforts".

"But we have players and if we cannot strengthen the team in these areas, we have people that we can trust and we go for it".

"At the end of the game the boys were disappointed that we didn't win".

On the domestic front, Manchester United signed Romelu Lukaku in a deal that could amount to £90million while Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton have also paid some big fees.

Guardiola said: "Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

Jose Mourinho has confirmed Manchester United are in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about signing for the second part of the season.

"He was very clear by showing that what he did previous year was not enough for him - he thinks he can do more".

"I am not happy", said Benitez, a Champions League victor with Liverpool, "but at the same time for me it's a challenge". "I will try to do my best to stay here, get an important role for the season, to help my team-mates and to impress the manager". But Mourinho will know that the results were unimportant; creating the spirit within his team, building a mentality, and emulating what he has been doing for so many years was the goal.

Former England and Newcastle striker Shearer is tipping Manchester United to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2013.

"United need to rekindle the fear factor at Old Trafford where they drew ten games last season", says the Daily Mail.

"This time, we are all in the same basket". He has been at City since age 6, and was selected on the bench for the Champions League game against Celtic in December. "But the top seven, we are going to be in the four competitions and so there is no advantage for any one of us".

Stopping short of a guarantee, Mourinho believes an encouraging pre-season and success in the Europa League last season can propel his side to further success.

Marcus Rashford seems to be more of a wide player and Anthony Martial is in limbo at United. "I understand the reality of the market, I understand the reality of the number", Mourinho told a press conference, the Manchester Evening News report. Victor [Lindelof] can play right-back, centre midfield.

"We have a central midfielder and striker, so obviously another player would be one coming from the sides".

West Ham United will be kept waiting before they kick off their Premier League campaign, with their televised clash with Manchester United taking place on Sunday (kick-off 4pm).
