The city languishes in sixth - a position United's manager Jose Mourinho will know all too well - behind rival northern cities Leeds and Liverpool, who claimed 4 and 5 place respectively.

Sergio Aguero of Manchester City celebrates scoring his sides first goal from the penalty spot with Gabriel Jesus of Manchester City during the Premier League match between Middlesbrough and Manchester City at the Riverside Stadium on April 30, 2017 in Middlesbrough, England. We always had that.

Manchester United will kick off their new campaign on Sunday at Old Trafford against West Ham. "I think it's the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", he said. Diego Costa is still there, despite all the rumours, but those could return to unsettle the dressing room.

"But no doubt for West Ham to get a player with his experience and quality is very, very good".

We had lots of dominance at home, we had lots of chances, we had lots of matches where the result could or should be 2-0 or 3-0 and in the end was 1-1.

United have made three signings so far this summer and are targeting a wide player in the remaining weeks of the transfer window.

It may be recalled here that United have already bolstered their squad with the addition of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof. Regardless of his age, the unwavering will to win is as strong as it has ever been.

Defense wins titles, but goals are what the people want.

Eyeing the Welsh winger for a long time, the United boss has decided to step up his efforts to make this deal happen. And that's what United needs to win the Premier League.

"My initial analysis coming from January and progressively through the other months I was thinking about four players but I am not a difficult person to work with - in spite of it looking different sometimes". But Mourinho won plaudits after he handed his runner's up medal to a young fan in the crowd.

According to The Sun this morning, Mourinho has placed his wishes on the desk of Ed Woodward, who he hopes will fund the venture.
