Mourinho confirms Manchester United in talks with Ibrahimovic


"For any neutrals, they will be the team to watch this season - the hottest ticket in town".

Following a season-long loan spell with Real Madrid, Hernandez moved to Germany's Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 before joining West Ham last month, and the 29-year-old is focused on putting on a good display during tomorrow's emotional return.

"I don't there's extra pressure on me". "I know it's a big responsibility considering I have become one of the most expensive goalkeepers". The only option Mourinho could truly call upon was Marouane Fellaini, brought on because the Red Devils had no other options that could make an impact on the game.

Pep Guardiola promised yesterday that there will be no immediate repeat of this summer's lavish spending at Manchester City.

"Of course, it had an influence on me [the presence of Pep Guardiola here]".

"I am happy with the effort the club did", the 54-year-old Portuguese said. I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win.

While United had to deal with playing regularly on Thursdays and Sundays on their way to winning the competition in Stockholm, Chelsea eased to the Premier League title with no European football to worry about - and neither did Liverpool, who took fourth spot as United finished sixth.

Manchester City may give debuts to Kyle Walker, Danilo and Ederson but Benjamin Mendy is out with a thigh problem.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season".

Additionally, the guaranteed goals of the 36-year-old will be vital if a goal shy United team are to challenge for the big two trophies, the Premier League and Champions League. Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away. "But we try to win the game". But then there was in 2008 when we were a League One side, City were newly-crowned the "world's richest club' already with many star players - and we beat them in the League Cup at our humble Withdean Stadium home".

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and global clearance. Now, the 2017/18 premier league season is just days away.

"The Premier League is what you all know", Mourinho said on Friday.

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect".

"We're not expected to beat teams like City".

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan.
