Ahead of the Premier League opener against West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday, he said: "My initial analysis from January and progressing through other months I was thinking of four players but I am not a hard person to work with, even if looks different or you want to make it look so".

A good summer of recruiting should ensure they enjoy a far more stable season this year, aiming to get back to the form that earned them a place in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League.

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season.

United start their Premier League campaign at home on Sunday when the Hammers travel to Old Trafford, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Having added Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic to his squad, Mourinho is hoping United make at least one more signing before the window closes, with Gareth Bale, Ivan Perisic and Danny Rose among those linked with a move.

"There are obviously bigger competitions than others, but we will certainly be fighting on all fronts to win as much as we can". I will go with what I have to try to win everything. "But we have players and if we can not strengthen the team in these areas, we have players that we trust". "They can still be like new players for us later in the season, so we are fine".

"I just think that he was very clear by showing that what he did past year was not enough for him".

"There are not many, there are just a couple".

While United had to deal with playing regularly on Thursdays and Sundays on their way to winning the competition in Stockholm, Chelsea eased to the Premier League title with no European football to worry about - and neither did Liverpool, who took fourth spot as United finished sixth.

"When this season I got a call that Matic wants to play for me, he wants to come to Manchester United and he can make it happen, I thought he was the ideal player for me".

"Not just for his qualities but also for my relationship with him".

"He's one of those players who gives me what I like in a player, which is consistency". I'm not in a position of crying, of moaning, protesting.

United have been outspent by neighbours Manchester City but Mourinho has warned them it takes more than cash to be a victor.

"When you come out on top it is an unbelievable feeling to know you are the best team in the country, and you have gone through all sorts of things along the way to win that".

"I think everybody is in Europe".
