Anthony Martial breaks silence amid reports of Man Utd fine

Liverpool have spent big in the transfer window in an attempt to close the gap on Premier League champions Manchester City but it has been a summer of intense frustration for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Kovacic doesn't believe that Manchester United suit his style of play, which will come as a blow to manager Jose Mourinho.

United are trying to land the 29-year-old Lewandowski as a part of a player plus cash deal. However, it slipped during the second half of last season, the lowlight of which was a Champions League exit vs. Sevilla, and it will get into unsafe territory if the upcoming campaign starts badly.

Competition would still be fierce, with Renato Sanches, Corentin Tolisso, a World Cup victor with France, Javi Martinez and Thomas Mueller also seeking midfield places. The 23-year-old is "set to" join United after the club ended their interest in Leicester's Harry Maguire.

United are not looking to sell Martial to another Premier League club.

The failure to get new players in early has reared its head again this time around, to the extent that United have brought in only one senior signing in midfielder Fred with just a week remaining of the transfer window. Spurs are playing great football, and the quality they have in the team- they have six or seven first team players starting in their national team.

Mourinho's pre-season demeanour has been the subject of much conversation, following his public outbursts and spats with select players, most prominently Anthony Martial.

Unfortunately, the Red Devils have not been able to lock any player that can fit into the position down all summer long, with Inter Milan and Croatia star Ivan Perisic having emerged as Mourinho's top target. Meanwhile, the Blues have lined up Jordan Pickford, Kasper Schmeichel and Jack Butland as potential replacements should keeper Thibaut Courtois leave for Real Madrid.

"People need to understand that we play this game not to lose it, we play this game to win", the striker told Business Insider.
