BeIN Sports extends Premier League contract

Since gaining promotion to the Premier League in 2015, they have broken their club record transfer every season.

When asked if he would make a signing today, Mourinho said: "The information I have is no".

Richard Scudamore, Premier League executive chairman, said: "We know there are many passionate fans of Premier League clubs right across the Middle East and North Africa, and that BeIN Sports does an excellent job making the competition available to them".

"I am not confident, and the market closes today, so it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

"Other teams go up and down, we want to try to win one point more than the others".

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline.

Manchester United have been hit by injuries throughout the pre-season tour of the United States and there are plenty of first-team stars that have only just returned from their holidays due to exploits in the World Cup this summer. As it stands, Alderweireld and Maguire are considered too expensive, while Bayern Munich have knocked back a loan move for Boateng. "[Sergio] Romero, [Antonio] Valencia, Marcos Rojo, [Diogo] Dalot, Ander Herrera, [Nemanja] Matic [are injured] and I think that's it".

"I said we would sign one or two, but the second one wasn't possible".

Mourinho did confirm that Alexis Sanchez, who was a highlight for United over pre-season, is fit and firing though. 'When I listen, when I read, it's hard to believe we finished second because you are capable of making people who finish second (sound like we) were relegated.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game". "If we play good and are consistent like last season, we have a chance to repeat".
