Jerome Boateng rejects Manchester United move

Manchester United season preview Manchester United season preview

The United boss wants two new players to add to summer signings Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant but is set to start the season with the squad already at his disposal. It is time for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed.

Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race. The centre-back has been one of Manchester United's top transfer targets but a deal could not be finalised as the two clubs failed to agree on a fee for the 29-year-old.

Jerome Boateng was another option but Bayern Munich have not been keen to sanction a loan move.

Manchester United's interest in Tottenham star Alderweireld is unlikely to go away, while Willian remains of great interest to Jose Mourinho.

Coming in for a world record transfer fee of around £89 million, the World Cup victor took a while to get going back in Manchester, but he did help the club win both the League Cup and the Europa League in his first season back.

Liverpool have invested heavily over the summer as they look to pose a challenge to last season's runaway champions, Manchester City, but the same can't be said for United.

The Manchester side has reportedly missed out on FC Barcelona's Yerry Mina and Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld in recent days too.

How was your summer, your World Cup, your holiday and your pre-season?

"Eventually Axel said: "Do me a favour and finish it as quickly as possible because I really want to go to Dortmund". You have to try your best to get points and even with the difficulties that we had with our pre-season, now I don't think is the time to be speaking about that.

Liverpool, buoyant after a close-season spending spree, host equally busy West Ham United on Sunday.

"Ander Herrera was injured against Bayern, [Nemanja] Matic was injured in the World Cup and had surgery in Philadelphia a couple of weeks ago".

That felt like a reference to Liverpool but, more importantly for United, it was also an admission that it will need a dramatic improvement this season for his own team to bridge the gap.

"I think a lot will depend on how his team plays, you know".

"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that".
