  • Antonio Candreva shoots for Inter Milan versus Chelsea in pre season

"There's great competition in the squad now, there's a good mixture of midfielders and attackers and I think that the club will be close to challenging this year".

"I think Neymar is going to happen [to be] the same (as Pogba)".

"I was a little bit surprised by the fact Chelsea are selling to their rivals who will be challenging for the Premier League next year", said the Irishman. He also looks set to wear the captain's armband more often than not next season in Carrick's absence. Mourinho has fielded him in the centre of the pitch in the pre-season and his ability to feature anywhere will give United manager more options while deciding his starting lineup.

Manchester United have announced the signing of Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic for a fee of 40 million pounds.

It seemed a bold statement to make having been treated to a first-half performance that saw Jose Mourinho's team dominate with sweeping moves and tenacious midfield play.

We've teamed up with Football365 to write club-by-club previews for the new season.

"If you do that you have the risk of even more punishment but it's a decision I will leave with him". 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.

"He needs time. We are going to give him his time".

Romelu Lukaku was brought in from Everton, while former Benfica defender Victor Lindelof was signed to add strength to the club's backline.

The flexibility in formations we've seen in preseason will be key to navigating the Premier League and Champions League campaigns but at this stage United do not look ready to win either.

However, the newspaper says that despite the frustration at dealing with the Italian giants, United remain confident they will eventually reach an agreement to sign the £48m-rated winger. He has got to take responsibility and I am sure he relishes that.
