Mourinho exhales while Manchester United does not achieve the transfer objectives.

Jose Mourinho was furious after Manchester United did not bring new players on Thursday

Jose Mourinho was furious on Thursday night after Manchester United failed to bring in a new signing before the transfer window closed.

United launched a last offer of £ 18 million for Diego Godin of Atlético de Madrid, but the Uruguayan defender agreed a new contract in Spain. Mourinho had warned that United faces a "difficult season" if he did not sign at least one more player after spending 75 million pounds on Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant this summer.

The head of the United States remained calm in front of the media before Friday's first Premier League game against Leicester, but was privately told that he was angry and frustrated.

United was prepared to break the world record of transfer of a defender and spend up to 100 million pounds sterling, but the executive vice president of Old Trafford, Ed Woodward, could not make a big purchase.

After one last summer broadcasting his complaints from Michigan to Munich, Mourinho appeared on Thursday with his face set.

Manchester United kicks off their Premier League campaign at home against Leicester City on Friday night and even Mourinho knew it was not the right time to complain again.

So, with the closing of the transfer window without the additional signings I wanted, can United compete with Manchester City this season?

& # 39; I know the words you want me to say or not to say. It depends on the music, but the words are not easy, "he replied, choosing a strange moment to refer to the pop success of the eighties.

However, it was clear from what followed, that Mourinho fears the worst, that he feels that United's decision to keep his money in his pocket this week could bounce off them soon enough.

"At the end of November or December, you do not need words," he added. "You will see which teams are candidates to win the Premier League, for the moment, the words are not important, let's play football and see the end of November or December."

This is from a manager who won the title with Chelsea in 2015 and was fired the following December after an unproductive summer and a bad start to the season.

Mourinho sees the warning signs. He knows he can not afford to leave the blocks so slowly again. After a wet squib of a day limit at United, it was hard not to detect a certain distance between Mourinho and Woodward.

Mourinho wanted two new signatures and, twice this summer, he has publicly asked Woodward to deliver.

However, after spending close to £ 375 million in two years under the Portuguese coach, Woodward was not willing to pay more for players he considered too old, too expensive or not better than he already had.

It is understood that United would have broken the world transfer record of a defender and paid £ 100m for someone of the quality of Real Madrid Raphael Varane, but decided that £ 65m was more than enough for Harry Maguire. Even then, Leicester would not move.

United tried to get a loan from Jerome Boateng of Bayern Munich, considering that the Germans had already sold them two players with records of questionable injuries in Owen Hargreaves and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

When discussions became a permanent transfer, United would only offer £ 22.5m for a player that Bayern values ​​at £ 45m, but turns 30 next month.

Similarly, Toby Alderweireld, another player of 29 years, although United's interest in the defense of Tottenham never reached a price discussed between the two clubs. Only one conversation took place between Woodward and Daniel Levy this summer, when the president of the Spurs asked about the out-of-favor players of United, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw.

United had an interest in Yerry Mina, but was discouraged by the exorbitant fees of the agents involved in hiring the Barcelona defender, who ended up joining Everton.

Finally, they turned to Godin, 32, and met with their purchase clause of 18 million pounds sterling, only to feel that the Uruguayan had used United to promote a new contract at Atlético de Madrid. It meant that the £ 30m move proposed by Marcos Rojo for Everton was canceled, and Matteo Darmian could remain at United beyond the close of the transfer window in Italy next week.

So Mourinho was disappointed, but Woodward would not pay more for those defenders, than the extremes his manager wanted: Ivan Perisic, 29, and Willian, 30. Woodward would prefer to keep faith with Martial, 22, a player that Mourinho was happy to sell to finance other deals.

It highlights the opposite perspectives of a manager who wants to improve now because there is no guarantee that he will be at Old Trafford this time next year, and an executive who operates with an eye on the future.

It may not be the best way to embark on what has historically been a dangerous third season for Mourinho, particularly in light of his other problems this summer.

He played a straight bat when asked about them on Thursday, notably about Martial, who bothered him by leaving United's preseason tour at the birth of his son in Paris, and Paul Pogba, whose uneasy relationship with his manager is fueling a I want to join Barcelona

Mourinho spoke with Pogba and his other World Cup stars on Thursday to see which one could play against Leicester after a few days of training because he has six fewer men due to an injury.

"We do not have many solutions and we want to go with everything we have," he said. "Of course, I'd rather look at the bank and have them instead of having 16-year-olds with no experience.

"We'd prefer to have a couple more days, but the decision was to be the first to play and that's it." We are ready. & # 39;
