Jose Mourinho has already got some excuses in early for his Manchester United's upcoming season by claiming he is not happy with their summer business so far.
Mourinho has added £90 million striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton and spent nearly £32 million on Swedish international defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica this summer.
The Premier League giants are in the market for a top class defensive midfielder and another attacking player. However, their efforts so far have proved less than fruitful.
Speaking to Mark Ogden of ESPN FC, Mourinho said:
We always want more, we always feel there is room to improve and I cannot say that I am happy with our transfer window but what I can also say is that, it is a difficult transfer window and I don't blame anyone, it is just a reality of things. The market is going into such a direction where many players are difficult to get and that is not to say impossible but every club is economically powerful and they don't want to sell or their demands are really high, so the market is difficult.
Efforts to sign Nemanja Matic and Eric Dier have failed to result in any sort of breakthrough and a player that has been heavily linked to the club in recent weeks, Ivan Perisic, has flown out to China with Inter Milan for their pre-season tour.
It could be a long and protracted transfer window for Man Utd fans.
