Mourinho ready for second-year success

Gareth Bale

Former Manchester United manager has told beIN SPORTS about his plans to sign Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Cesc Fabregas while he was manager of Manchester United.

"This is a good system because we've got the quality in the side to apply any system". On five of these occasions, moreover, the champions have conceded four to ten goals more than the best defences - not an insignificant number.

The arrivals of defender Victor Lindelof, midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Romelu Lukaku have also improved the squad.

If United are to be serious title contenders, being more clinical at Old Trafford should be a priority for Mourinho, starting with the home match against the Hammers.

The Sweden international was United's top scorer last season, hitting 28 goals as they won the Europa League, the League Cup and the Community Shield. Chelsea, without European football, were able to run away with the title, as Leicester managed to do the season before.

"Towards the back end of last season, he couldn't get in their team".

Mourinho reiterated at a pre-match conference yesterday his satisfaction with the club's transfer business this summer window, despite not achieving "100 per cent" of his targets.

Ince believes the fresh faces will provide a return on sizeable investment in time, but is not convinced that United have surged ahead of their Premier League rivals - as has been suggested by others.

According to the British media reports, City have spent over 200 million pounds on full-backs Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo, goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva. He is open. Obviously, we leave the door open for him to recover with us. "There is no advantage for anyone". The lack of alternate forward options once again saw Mourinho's team fall short.

"There is no guarantee but naturally a manager in his second season knows the club and the players better". After all, he always said he wanted to win the EPL.

Loftus-Cheek, who has been an integral member of England's under-21 side, has made 32 appearances for Chelsea since first breaking into the team in 2014.
