Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has not ruled out bringing in a fourth signing before the transfer window closes but insists he will not moan or cry if no more new faces arrive.
"It is not because I have always done it (won the league title in his second season) that I am going to do it again", Mourinho said. I'm 24 now but when you are on the pitch there is no age.
Those reasons for excitement include the arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku for 75 million pounds from Everton, Chelsea's Serbia midfielder Nemanja Matic (40 mln) and Sweden defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica (30 mln).
"It would be better to lose two or three matches but win three or four more matches, and then we would have six to eight more points".
"It's important, but it's not absolutely essential to get the season off to a winning start".
They have weakened their own team and strengthened Manchester United, who now have a better chance of winning the Premier League than Chelsea. "City have had the luxury of buying three world class full-backs, I don't believe Pep will make the same mistakes, and that's why I'm banking on Manchester City".
"We used the pre-season since day one, to work and to try to improve things that we already do. Old Trafford is waiting for us and I think Old Trafford has a reason to be behind us".
Obiang is by all accounts a very good player himself and won't give Pogba a moments rest on the ball.
The United boss says he is happy with his options if his squad remains as it is. "He tried. Of course he missed an open goal but he scored his goal and had a good fight against two central defenders".
Lukaku is expected to score loads of goals, while Pogba will have to be much better if he is to vindicate himself from the £89m tag.
"We constantly see the Chelsea Youth Team and the Manchester City Youth Team win the FA Youth Cup, but we are not seeing that many players come through their system and getting into their first teams, which has to be a real concern". However, they have been unable to sign a wide player, and a move for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic, who has been linked in the British media with a transfer to Old Trafford, looks unlikely.
