Deadline Day Transfer: Manchester United to make three signings today

Will it be Pogba’s year

Will it be Pogba’s year

Former Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy questions Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's transfer strategy after missing out on his top defensive targets.

Jose Mourinho believes finishing runners-up in the Premier League with Manchester United last season is one of the best achievements of his career.

Leicester, meanwhile, have so far refused to listen to offers for Maguire. United saw seen two bids rejected, the higher of around £60m. He appeared to split supporters: Some were genuinely keen on the deal, while others tried to convince themselves they felt the same, as they got more desperate.

There was more fun being had in Claude Puel's presser as the Leicester manager mentioned United's interest in Maguire.

However, Mourinho has been unable to bring in as many new signings as he would have liked and, with Diogo Dalot out injured and new keeper Lee Grant likely to be on the bench, Fred could be the only new starter for the home side.

"Can we win something this season?"

However, we can compare Alderweireld's 16/17 season where the Belgium worldwide played 30 matches for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

The Energy Information Administration is scheduled to release the data on USA crude stockpiles, at 10:30 AM ET on Wednesday. It also held its ground against the dollar around 1.2954 but remained very close to an 11-month low which it hit on Monday.

And now the transfer window has slammed shut, the comments of football agent Paul Stefani - who works with Axel Witsel - show United had some pretty major plans for their midfield this summer.

However, BBC's David Ornstein moved quickly to claim the rumours are unfounded.

Mourinho had been chasing a new centre-back in particular with Toby Alderweireld, Diego Godin, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng emerging as the main contenders this week.

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.

And Scholes said United may have missed a trick in not appointing Giggs, now manager of Wales, when Ferguson retired in 2013, pointing to Barcelona and Real Madrid's shrewd gambles on Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane. Bilbao keeper Kepa has headed to London as Courtois' replacement, joining the Blues in a seven-year deal.

In contrast, Leicester City have been busy in this transfer window and spending their money wisely following the departure of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City for £60m. He's set to go out on loan to Celtic.

"I see a good stable team, not anymore the team which has been promoted to the Premier League".
