Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

All doesn't seem well at Manchester United, as boss Jose Mourinho has continued to publicly hammer the transfer policy of his club.

It proved to be a vital goal, with Jamie Vardy's stoppage-time strike leaving Shaw's goal as the victor for Manchester United on the night.

Mourinho's transfer targets were not shared by the United board.

Leicester's steadfast refusal to sell Harry Maguire scuppered any move for the England star, while Press Association Sport understands Bayern Munich did not want to allow Jerome Boateng to head to Old Trafford on loan. "It is a lie, repeated 1,000 times". Clubs from other leagues are also free to bid for Premier League players.

"But again, the perception of the people that read can be different, but I like my players and my group".

United supporters have watched on in despair as fierce rivals Liverpool have splashed the cash on a number of high-quality acquisitions, defending champions Man City now have Riyad Mahrez in their ranks, while Chelsea have been busy since replacing Antonio Conte with Maurizio Sarri.

Their best chance for a stretch came when skipper Pogba threaded through Sanchez, whose laid off for Juan Mata to get away a shot that was deflected just wide. Unlike the majority of the United side, Sanchez enjoyed a full preseason and will be raring to go.

Despite fans celebrating the club's best EPL finish in five years last season - finishing runners up to neighbours Man City - Scholes said that it meant nothing to him.

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation.

Manchester United great Paul Scholes said Jose Mourinho has made too many unnecessary changes at Old Trafford which has led to a philosophy which has so far failed.

A new season begins tomorrow with Manchester United looking to catch up to neighbours City.

The former Juventus midfielder was among a handful of United players who only returned to pre-season training on Monday, after their countries advanced to the World Cup semi-finals.
