Deadline day round-up: Kovacic in at Chelsea, all quiet at Manchester United

Man Utd transfer news United Maguire Alderweireld

Man Utd transfer news United could yet land Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham

Claude Puel's team is stronger as compared to Jose Mourinho's and can strike a major surprise if Manchester United are not up to the task. If they are well, me too.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez are set for a "defining season" at the club.

For the first time the EPL deadline has been moved forward to the day before the season kicks off when United hosts Leicester City today.

They were never interested in Boateng either.

"I do not trust that new players will arrive and I'm not confident in that so now I will only focus on the players I have", he said.

West Ham snap up Lucas Perez from Arsenal, add Carlos Sanchez
The Mexico global scored just eight goals in 28 league appearances last season but is looking forward to working with Pellegrini. The 29-year-old joined the Hammers after spending two years on loan with Deportivo La Caruna since 2017.

Sanchez signed for United in January, and has so far struggled to replicate the goals and attacking threat he consistently displayed during his three-and-a-half years at Arsenal.

Red Devils chief executive Ed Woodward even met with Real President Florentino Perez over the summer to sound him out over the centre-back's availability, but were told he was unavailable.

"But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same".

According to reports breaking tonight, United had £100m available to spend on a world class centre-back this summer, but did not deem any of Mourinho's favoured options as worth spending such big money on.

There was no question of Pogba being allowed to leave and there remains great support for Anthony Martial at the club, with every inquiry about him over the summer being met with a firm refusal. And this season, for the first time in his career, Mourinho enters year three not having already succeeded but with something left to prove.

The Portuguese went some way to countering suggestions he is unhappy with his squad at his pre-match press conference.

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho.

"I like my players and my group".

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".
