The ongoing Paul Pogba transfer saga at Manchester United shows no sign of ending with Thursday's 5pm deadline.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his global future.

Several transfer targets were identified but failed to materialise and it seems the United boss doesn't fancy his chances of closing the considerable gap on Champions City with the pool of players left at Old Trafford.

"But it's the same conversation as with (Ashley) Young, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Jesse) Lingard, it's the same".

Speaking at Carrington, Mourinho said: "If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, ten minutes half an hour... I'd prefer to have them even if they are not top, top, top".

Mourinho now though goes into tonight's game with the five central defenders he had past year and the same full-backs who all gave him issues.

"The players with a proper pre-season are fit and they are strong". Valencia - he was injured in pre-season.

"You try to make a case and there is no case in it".

According to the latest reports from the Express, Mourinho had told his close companions at Old Trafford that he wanted to let Pogba leave the club this summer.

The Chile worldwide, 29, said he feels more comfortable at United now following a full preseason with the club and hopes to combine more effectively with teammates Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku this term, beginning with the season-opening match against Leicester City on Friday. He's one of the players that I have to speak to, to see how physically and mentally he feels.

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to these first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs (and Burnley on August 27 and September 1 respectively) there is (a) national team (break) and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better".

"It's time just to say "tomorrow we have a Premier League match" and we have to play to win it".

"But again, the perception of the people that reads can be different, but I like my players and my group". I'm going to enjoy this season. I am a football manager and I want to keep our best players for the squad and for our season.
