Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea All Ready For Big Signings

John Aldridge: After winning the transfer war, Liverpool can now dream of Premier League glory

"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".

United manager Jose Mourinho, entering his third season at Old Trafford, has looked like a Bassett Hound for most of the summer, predicting a "difficult season" for a team which finished second in May.

"My view is that, first of all, it is hard for me to believe we finished second because when I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - you [the media] are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, you make them look like serial winners". We asked him directly: Premier League or Champions League? "I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"I'd love to back Liverpool and I do think we'll be the nearest challengers but there's a lot of points to make up on Manchester City", Thompson told Sky Sports.

"They seem so intent and we spoke to Kompany and Walker, they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved past year".

Goals were clearly not a problem for Liverpool last season and while Salah, Mane and Firmino will lead the charge once again, Daniel Sturridge appears to be back to somewhere near full fitness and young Ben Woodburn will continue to develop.

Wildes briefly spoke to reporters and said the pair went through "a wonderful journey like most have ... in getting citizenship". Their immigration process was under scrutiny, as President Trump has been cracking down on immigration through his policies.

Unai Emery, he says, will need another two transfer windows to hew Arsenal into contenders while he "loves Mauricio Pochettino to bits", he lists four major stumbling blocks to Tottenham's hopes of a first Premier League title: "They haven't signed anyone, they've got their first four games away, they've changed stadiums and they've had I think nine players out of the starting 11 playing in the very latter stages of the World Cup".

'In fact I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that by May the title will be back on Merseyside for the first time in 29 years'. The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?

"United should be challenging", insisted Neville.

Press Association Sport understands United have been keen to sign a centre-back, but Leicester's reluctance to sell Harry Maguire looks to have scuppered any move for the England star.

'We all know they needed a goalkeeper and they've got one of the best in Brazilian Alisson, while Virgil van Dijk now has his feet under the table as the team's defensive leader.
