Paul Scholes slams former club amid Liverpool and Man City spending

Since the 2008-09 season when Alex Ferguson's United defended their crown, the reigning champions have stumbled at the first hurdle and failed to retain the title.

"The information I have is no", Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference when asked if he expected any new arrivals on Thursday.

The highest-spending clubs were Liverpool (£165m), Chelsea (£120m), Fulham (£105m) and Leicester City (£100m), representing around 40% of the aggregate gross player transfer expenditure by Premier League clubs.

"We have only seen him when he has appeared in front of the TV cameras this summer and heard what he has told the media, and I suspect he will behave very differently on the training ground with his players".

Instead, Mourinho was left empty-handed from the final days of the window despite warning that the Red Devils face a hard season by not delivering his targets in the transfer market.

The rivalry between Manchester United and Manchester City was forged in Victorian times - but has arguably never been more fierce than it is today.

Pochettino added: "I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out". It's about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.

"When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don't think they [United] have the quality of those two teams at the minute", Scholes said. As it stands, Alderweireld and Maguire are considered too expensive, while Bayern Munich have knocked back a loan move for Boateng.

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better".

But this was only a "soft" closure - with some deals still able to be completed after this deadline. I do think they have one over on City.

Richard Scudamore, Premier League executive chairman, said: "We know there are many passionate fans of Premier League clubs right across the Middle East and North Africa, and that BeIN Sports does an excellent job making the competition available to them".

Pre-season has clearly been a frustrating time for Mourinho, while a perceived lack of respect for leading his side to second spot last term has got under his skin.
