Neymar 222 million Euro Deal 'Not Expensive', Says Jose Mourinho

On Sunday, Nemanja Matic arrived from Chelsea in a deal worth a reported £40 million, with the Serbian set to play alongside Paul Pogba in Mourinho's midfield. Neither are good enough to start every week on a team with aspirations of winning the league, and neither have the excuse of a lack of experience to fall back on any longer either. We drew too many [last season] and I think more goals are needed from different areas.

Perisic is exactly the type of wide-man Mourinho is looking for as he's a hard worker who doesn't shirk his defensive responsibilities but he's also a threat in the final third having scored 11 goals and set-up another 12 for his team mates last season. Personally, this is an exciting time to watch United win games, and Mourinho will take this team back to glory. This is where Mourinho will earn his wage as a coach.

While we can all recall the "odd mediocre performance" from Lukaku, I don't actually think the pressure of being at United is going to be a problem for him.

Their arrivals take the average height of United's players to around 6ft 1in, on a par with the tallest sides in the Premier League.

OUT: Josh Harrop (free, Preston), Wayne Rooney (free, Everton), Adnan Januzaj (£8m, Real Sociedad), Sam Johnstone (loan, Aston Villa), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (released).

Nobody doubts that United have a bit of work to do over the summer and beyond. This season, hopefully he'll score loads of goals and it's about him taking that leadership role.

Irwin, who made over 350 appearances for United, told talkSPORT he believes Mourinho has assembled a squad that can challenge for the title.

Pereira, along with Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Scott McTominay, Demetri Mitchell and Axel Tuanzebe were five academy graduates to be included in the pre-season squad.

Nemanja Matic had trained alone in London while United were on tour.

Editor's note: This preview was completed on July 30. "I have seven days until the Super Cup, but I'm sure that everyone is ready and I will try to be 100% ready and hopefully we can do something for this club".
