Manchester United wanted to pay £100m plus for Rafael Varane

Grant SmithAug 10, 2018

After the finals it was not the price being quoted for Mina but the structure of the agents' fees being proposed that made the Old Trafford club uncomfortable.

His performance at the 2018 World Cup for France though only confirmed of his standing as one of the top talents in the world at his position, which garnered him plenty of interest this summer during the transfer window.

Burley said: "It's incredible".

"Liverpool got it done early and did some good business".

Pogba has become one of the most consistent players at Manchester United over the last season, and has contributed 15 goals for the club in his 88 games there. We don't have many solutions and want to go with everything we have.

The club believe they have delivered over the course of the last two windows on the agreed targets with around £73m invested this window in Fred, Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant, as well £35m for Alexis Sanchez in January.

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has issued a rallying cry to Jose Mourinho's squad as they prepare for their opening Premier League fixture against Leicester on Friday night.

Liverpool looks like the big victor of the window as it has emerged as second favorite for the title behind champion Manchester City.

United were asked if they would be interested in signing Atlético Madrid defender Diego Godín, only for the Uruguay captain to sign a new contract with the Spanish club a few days later.

But his comments have caused outrage amongst some United fans and sparked a row over whether the producers of the show he appeared on, ESPN FC had an anti Manchester United agenda. The time has come for United to win more trophies. The agenda here is real!

He also moaned about the lack of players available to him during the off-season because of the World Cup and slammed the quality of depth within his squad.

He shakes his head as he adds: "But to bring nobody in?"

Jose Mourinho has not had the best of times at Manchester United this pre-season. It's not the worst in the Premier League by a million miles.
