Not enough money has been spent, says the Portuguese, who has seen three players added to his squad over the summer - Brazil midfielder Fred for $60 million, Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot ($24 million) and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant ($2 million).

"Subject to any late sales, the Premier League and its clubs may benefit from having playing squads settled and in place for the start of the new season".

Although there has been speculation about a deal for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld, there has been no offer from United while Leicester remain determined to retain England global Harry Maguire, who has four years left on his contract.

"I'm not confident", Mourinho said, when asked whether there would be more players arriving before the deadline.

Mourinho revealed this morning he is not expecting anybody to join United before the transfer deadline, with the window shutting at 5pm. "It is time for me to stop thinking about the market", he said.

Left-back Joe Bryan secured a reported £7m switch from Bristol City after a strong season in the Championship and will hope to form a strong partnership with the highly rated Ryan Sessegnon, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah strengthens Fulham on the right side of defence following a loan departure from Manchester United.

"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said. Premier League came out of his mouth before we'd even finished the question.

Mourinho heads into the Leicester match with a hefty injury list, including key midfielders Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera, while a host of other stars of only recently returned from their break after World Cup duty.

"Because it is very important their feeling and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku made slightly early returns so could be involved on Friday, perhaps helping to boost the mood of a manager who has looked downbeat for much of the summer. In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now.

"It looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, that's as simple as that". I told that during pre-season.
