Manchester United prepared to pay £100m for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane?

Paul Pogba

A 2-1 victory on Friday night, built around a stirring performance and an early penalty from World Cup victor Pogba as well as Luke Shaw's first career goal, might have been cause for good cheer, but Mourinho chose the occasion to revisit his concerns over the club's recent business.

"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

Manchester United's transfer woes in pre-season has left Jose Mourinho feeling more like a head coach than a manager as his targets were reportedly vetoed. They spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have.

"We have to wait for end of November, beginning of December to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title". Leicester were strong in periods but we coped with that as a team. "I like challenges, I want to progress and win more trophies".

"We don't have a penalty-taker, it's how we feel, and I chose to take it", Pogba told Sky Sports. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard". "I have worked really hard over the preseason and I had a lot of time to reflect, and work on what I needed to", Shaw told Sky. We thought [he could play a] maximum 60 minutes, but he managed 80.

Shaw faces Ashley Young for competition at left-back with the 33-year-old working his way back to full fitness after World Cup duty with England but will hope to start once again when Jose Mourinho's men face Brighton in their next league game next Sunday (4pm).

He also said he'd moved past the excitement of the summer, adding: "Winning the World Cup is in the past".

Shaw forced a save from Kasper Schmeichel just past the 40-minute mark, settling a pass from Juan Mata after some nice build-up play from United before firing right at the Leicester keeper.

Mourinho said after the game that his side showed glimpses of what they are capable of, and they certainly made an impressive start.

Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation. "I am happy with the performance to make this game in this condition, it's encouraging for the future".
