Mourinho wants to see Pogba's World Cup focus at United

Moreover, United haven't enjoyed the best of transfer relations with Florentino Perez's men in recent times and hence it would be hard to lure such an important player within the span of two weeks. I would say third match, playing against a team [Tottenham] in a similar situation as us, so after three weeks it is OK.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hopes to sign two new players but is not sure the opportunities will arise.

He was routinely criticised for his performances for United last season, but stepped up a gear in Russian Federation, marshalling the France midfield alongside N'Golo Kanté and scoring in the final as the side were crowned world champions for a second time.

Manchester United are determined to sign Toni Kroos and Real Madrid have prepared to cash-in if £107m is put on the table this summer, according to reports in Spain via the Daily Star.

United, who face AC Milan in the third match of their United States pre-season tour on Wednesday, now have a number of players on post-World Cup breaks.

One man who would have been happy with his performances in Russian Federation will be Man United manager, Jose Mourinho.

Although Mourinho was not giving anything away, the United manager hinted he is not fully satisfied with the club's transfer business and was asked if he though his side could compete for the title and he refused to answer the question. "So of course I'm not happy, to have just a few players". "He's had a good World Cup".

The 33-year old forward is Real Madrid's all-time top scorer scoring 450 goals and registering 119 assists in 438 appearances, averaging 50 goals scored per season. Buying a player like him doesn't win you the Champions League alone, but you get a lot closer to it.

"I think Harry's happy here", Gray said.

While some critics will point to Mourinho as part of the problem in how he plays 25-year-old Pogba at club level, the Portuguese coach does not see himself the root of the problem.

But, the most important thing to (Mourinho) is results, he will be judged on that.
