Boateng trains with Bayern amid PSG and Manchester United links

If moves for Maguire and Alderweireld can not be completed before today's 5pm deadline, United may turn to Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng - although that deal would only be for a season-long loan.

After securing the signatures of Brazilian global midfielder Fred and Portuguese teenage full-back Diogo Dalot early in the window, strengthening his centre-back options has been Mourinho's priority. Alisson, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri were all signed while Naby Keïta completed his move to Anfield a year after an agreement was reached with RB Leipzig.

Chelsea shattered the world record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (£71.6 million, $92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian global Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champions Real Madrid. "Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody", warned Mourinho.

United have been quiet this summer, only adding three players to their squad so far.

- Fast start for Liverpool? He had a decent World Cup with Colombia and suddenly he's on the radar.

"The theatre of dreams has become the theatre of nightmares and a place were people do dream but only because they have fallen asleep watching united".

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last nine opening Premier League fixtures (W8 D1), winning their last seven in a row. "Sure we are going to be better, no doubt about that". "Nobody is consistent with 11 players". In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have that until now.

City haven't dipped into the deep pockets of their Abu Dhabi owners as significantly as Guardiola's first two summers in charge, but have still strengthened with club record signing Riyad Mahrez.

The midfielder, who shone as France won the World Cup in Russian Federation last month, is reported to have told his team-mates he is desperate to leave for Spain.

From his first weeks in Manchester, Mourinho insisted Sanchez's struggles would be forgotten when he hit the ground running after a full pre-season under his belt.

Chelsea also have a new boss but are already playing catch-up with Maurizio Sarri only appointed a month before the start of the campaign.

United have reportedly had two bids rejected for the England global, who sources insist is desperate to move to Old Trafford.

The Italian takes his side to Huddersfield Town on Saturday where Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world's most expensive keeper at 71 million pounds ($91.43 million), is set to make his debut.

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players". They were trying to get it done before the World Cup but before a ball was kicked they had it done.
