Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race.

Here's something you don't read every day; Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Luke Shaw following Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester City on Friday night.

Asked if he had the tools to compete without new signings, Mourinho said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".

"I will focus on the players that are available, so I am not even thinking about that list of injured players I gave you, (Nemanja) Matic, (Antonio) Valencia and so on".

"I enjoy the last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position in five or six years".

Liverpool kick off their new Premier League campaign with a home game against West Ham on Sunday, and Klopp's men will be looking to send out a real statement of intent with a convincing win over Manuel Pellegrini's Hammers side.

United chased a number of targets during the summer window, from Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld to a late move for Atletico Madrid stalwart Diego Godin, but were ultimately unsuccessful.

Interest in Barcelona defender Yerry Mina was tempered by prohibitive agent demands, with the Colombia worldwide instead heading to Everton.

Newcastle on the other hand have had their own kind of upheaval with a recent media boycott by the players to force management of the club pay them their due bonuses for the past season.

Australian teenager Daniel Arzani joined the English champions from sister club Melbourne City on Thursday but is expected to be sent on loan to Celtic.

And if Klopp does not deliver a trophy this season and they don't progress into the latter rounds of the Champions League, then he may find it hard to hold on to his job.

But if Barca offer them the chance to make a profit on the player they signed for a then world-record fee of $115 million two summers ago, and someone who has never really hit top form consistently, should United snap their hands off?
