Mourinho says Manchester United still in the market for a winger

Football fans poke fun at Pogba and Lukaku as the Man United pair miss chances in Super Cup final

It's a big day for Brighton after they were promoted from the Championship last season, impressive throughout and finishing in second after being pipped to the title by Newcastle United.

United have made three signings so far this summer and are targeting a wide player in the remaining weeks of the transfer window.

But Mourinho believes there are as many as seven candidates to challenge for Chelsea's crown in the coming campaign.

The race for the Premier League crown is a marathon and one we should all expect Manchester City to be involved in right until the end. "It is easy to say now I can score 20 goals or I have a lot of pressure, blah blah blah". Every opponent wants to win every match, every opponent gives you a hard time. Step by step, we're going to fight. "I have better conditions to deliver a better season than my first one".

Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws - the highest in the league.

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build. That won't matter too much, as they now have Premier League football to enjoy. It's not hard this season to motivate them to that level.

"I saw last season how tough the league is - it doesn't matter who the top teams are".

"I just think that he was very clear by showing what he did past year was not enough for him", Mourinho said in a press conference ahead of the first English Premier League (EPL) match this season against West Ham United.

Jose Mourinho says Manchester United are in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic to extend his stay at the club.

"What I had in other clubs was more players scoring goals, what we had was midfielders, wingers scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces", Mourinho said.

The Portuguese boss admitted he could resign the 35-year-old Swede in time to play in the second half of the season and he's been working hard with his social posts which showcase his rehabilitation going to plan.

Defensively Guardiola has gone out on the front foot to improve his fullback options with the signings of Danilo (Real Madrid), Benjamin Mendy (AS Monaco) and Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur) - spending well over £100 million for the trio.

"So between the players we lost and the players we got, I think we are in a similar situation".
