Pep Guardiola: Premier League players £20-£25m more expensive

Pep Guardiola: Premier League players £20-£25m more expensive

Since Alex Ferguson retired after the 2013 title win United have not finished in the top three but some serious investment in new players gives manager Jose Mourinho, starting his second season at the club, the sense that things are coming together. "Winning everything! We are Manchester United and we want to get back to being the big Manchester United", he said ahead of their clash with West Ham this weekend.

"Fortunately for us, there isn't any player in the squad who doesn's know the Premier League and quality of the players", he said.

"Of course now the full-backs are younger, they have energy in their legs and we are going to use them". I saw him on the TV last season, but it will depend on how he and the other players adjust to the Premier League.

"I think Lukaku is going to do well at United, he's given them a different dimension, but you can't look past Harry Kane".

However, Mourinho says he will move on if the club fail to make another signing and says players like Lindelof are capable of occupying other positions. "Old Trafford is waiting for us and I think Old Trafford has a reason to be behind us".

Paul Pogba has claimed that a good season for Manchester United can only truly be achieved by "winning everything". They will hope to use their home fans to get a result but it seems unlikely since Manchester City look a lot better than Brighton all over the ground.

Derek Wolfe Carted Off Field With Ankle Injury
After a season marred by a painful elbow injury, Wolfe added bulk in the offseason, beefing up 20 pounds, he said. Wolfe had 51 tackles and 5.5 sacks a year ago and is a huge part of the Broncos run defense and pass rush.

"But there's only one team that can win it and [Manchester] City brought [Pep] Guardiola to the club to win the Premier League and to win the Champions League, and he has to win something this year".

"But it was a very good performance from Nemanja". I had midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals from set-pieces.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season. "I would like to see Pep Guardiola stay even if City didn't win a trophy, but the reality of football is that he would most likely be sacked if we have another season like the last one".

"We were focused on the striker getting goals and when it didn't happen we were in trouble".

On the domestic front, Manchester United signed Romelu Lukaku in a deal that could amount to B£90million while Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton have also paid some big fees.
