Manchester United Star Lands Huge Blow On Jose Mourinho

United finished a distant 19 points behind local rivals Manchester City despite finishing second in the Premier League last season.

Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng were all major targets that look like failing to materialise for the frustrated United manager.

"I am still expecting them to be very strong this season, and I actually think that, along with Liverpool, they will be a lot closer to Manchester City this time".

United have endured a hard summer transfer window as they have tried and failed to sign a host of defensive targets, with Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld and Leicester's Harry Maguire among the names on their wish-list.

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant.

"I think despite Boateng's injuries that he brings leadership to Man United, which they don't have", Hislop told ESPN FC.

However, Japan has not become a signatory to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons which came into effect in July 2017. The attack on Hiroshima, 700 kilometres west of Tokyo, in the closing days of World War II ushered in the nuclear age.

"It is hard for me to believe we finished second, when I listen, when I read, because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners", he said. It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

Boateng's main aim is to win one more Champions League title.

"I can understand some speculation about our player because he has good attributes, but I am happy to keep him and hopefully start a great season".

Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku were among the last players to return to training and the Portuguese boss will be desperate for them to reach full fitness again.

Maguire and Leicester's main goal threat, Jamie Vardy, may not start, having just returned to pre-season training this week after their exertions in Russian Federation.

'It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different'.
