Jose Mourinho Says Manchester United Need More Signings to 'Close the Gap'

Jose Mourinho Says Manchester United Need More Signings to 'Close the Gap'

But he stayed after Premier League suitors were put off by United's asking price for the ex-Watford ace.

The Manchester United boss has been defending suggestions he is a short-term manager, insisting he always prepares clubs for success. Playing away at Stoke is never an easy task but I think they way that Manchester United are playing at the moment, they should be able to win here easily.

Rose, on the other hand, has emerged as one of Mourinho's primary options after the England left-back noted he wanted to play "up north" at some point in his career.

Their season looks like a phenomenal one in the works already, with the side sitting atop the Premier League table, having netted 10 goals and conceded none in their three appearances so far.

The 34-year-old striker who has had spells at Juventus, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain might be imposing but Lukaku revealed that he won't be intimidated by the striker in the team's dressing room.

"I think I prepare clubs in a way where, when I leave, the new manager arrives at a top club".

"I think we were very clever", Mourinho told The Times. "I don't like to sleep on a slow watch, a slow timing, and let it go", Mourinho concluded. But because we did it in the first part of the summer, it was much less. I think this bet is a banker bet so I am suggesting big stakes here. However, a horrific broken leg suffered during a Champions League group stage game against PSV Eindhoven then ruled Shaw out for the remainder of that campaign and he has struggled to regain top form ever since. "We have four teams who can get points, they will share points, they will discuss every result, so I think the draw is hard".

"But, for me, I'm waiting until the next four games to say, "all right, we're on track to winning the title". And that is not short-term even if you leave", he said.

Ashley Young is reportedly keen to remain at Manchester United past the end of his current contract, which expires next summer.
