Manchester City adds Mahrez, aims to retain title

How Manchester City could look in

How Manchester City could look in

The defence is potentially completely new with Joe Bryan joining from Bristol City, Alfie Mawson coming from relegated Swansea City, Maxime Le Marchand arriving from Nice and Callum Chambers and Timothy Fosu-Mensah making loan moves from Arsenal and Manchester United respectively. As it stands, Alderweireld and Maguire are considered too expensive, while Bayern Munich have knocked back a loan move for Boateng.

Writing in his column for the BBC, Shearer said: "Their team is definitely already good enough to challenge champions Manchester City for the title, but can Jose get the best out them, and can they play in a style that can keep their fans happy?"

He was also, however, firm in his stance that his old club Manchester United "should be challenging" regardless of their inability to add a top quality centre back to their side during the transfer window.

"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next".

Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign against Leicester City on Friday night.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today, so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed", Mourinho said.

Three dead in Zimbabwe protests over alleged election fraud
Zimbabwe went to the ballot on July 30, the first poll since long-time ruler Robert Mugabe was ousted from power by last November. Gunfire was heard downtown throughout the afternoon, including near the ruling party headquarters where protesters had gathered.

When asked whether he expected to welcome a fresh additions to his United squad, Mourinho offered these comments: "The information I have is no".

Whatever the explanation, the lack of new faces compounds issues surrounding the United squad heading into the Premier League season. "[Sergio] Romero, [Antonio] Valencia, Marcos Rojo, [Diogo] Dalot, Ander Herrera, [Nemanja] Matic [are injured] and I think that's it". "I think that's it".

"They returned on Monday", he said.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

The Red Devils coach has cut a sullen figure throughout pre-season with the former Chelsea boss unable to hide his dissatisfaction with Brazil global midfielder Fred being his sides only high profile signing.
