Mourinho says Man Utd still in the market for a winger

Paul Merson

United scored the least goals of the seven teams to qualify for Europe from the Premier League last season at 54, 32 fewer than the highest in Tottenham.

Ahead of their Premier League opener, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is confident his side can maintain his ideal second-season record.

Ibrahimovic played a major role in Manchester United's success last season, scoring 28 goals as the club won the EFL Cup and Europa League - returning to the Champions League as a result.

Last week Chelsea dismissed as "nonsense" claims by a lawyer said to be representing Costa that Conte was forcing out last season's top scorer.

"It was very clear from him that what he did previous year was not enough for him".

Those reasons for excitement include the arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku for £75 million (S$132 million) from Everton, Chelsea's Serbia midfielder Nemanja Matic (£40 million) and Sweden defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica (£30 million).

Asked if he plans to play three at the back regularly, Pep said: "I'm not going to say we are going to play all the season in that system".

"There is no relation between others or a guarantee because I always do, but I just think naturally a manger in the second season knows the club and players better".

The difference in best and worst price, or Oddschecker value, shows the relative uncertainty of bookmakers when pricing up the underdogs as opposed to the bigger teams in the league with many of them capable of causing a shock.

The Briton is aiming to complete an unprecedented World Championship triple-double, having retained his 10,000m title on the first day.

If the overhaul of City's squad, costing over £200 million, does not deliver silverware there will be further uncomfortable questions for the Spaniard, who finished his first season in English football without a single title.

"This time we are all in the same basket and it will be the same for everybody".

Also, Sunderland was the first team to be relegated after ending their 10-year stay in the Premier League after a 1-0 home defeat to AFC Bournemouth on April 29, 2017.

"You can argue the fact that maybe he is looking for another striker - that is me saying this - but I will go with Man City".

"We are going to fight for all of them and we are going to improve".

Ibrahimovic's one-year deal at Old Trafford expired in June and was not extended following the injury.

"In this moment, I agree with these people who think this".

The Red Devils boss has enjoyed success nearly without interruption across a 17-year managerial career, winning eight domestic titles, two Champions Leagues and two Europa Leagues.
