United in talks with Ibrahimovic about striker staying

And his confidence comes from the major shake-up at Old Trafford in his year in charge.

Also, Sunderland was the first team to be relegated after ending their 10-year stay in the Premier League after a 1-0 home defeat to AFC Bournemouth on April 29, 2017. I was thinking, three transfer windows, I need that.

Frustrated by City s failings in his trophyless first season in England, Guardiola has overhauled his squad with defenders Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, plus goalkeeper Ederson and playmaker Bernardo Silva.

"They could have scored more goals than they did, we could have scored more goals than we did..."

"So we will go for it this season. But we try to win the game".

"We have a good squad - a good squad also in numbers".

Mourinho has no new injury concerns, with Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young his only long-term absentees.

Manchester City has finished in the top three of the English Premier League standings five times in the last six seasons, including championships in 2012 and 2014 and runner-up finishes in 2013 and 2015. I want, I want!

Desperate to dethrone champions Chelsea, club record fees have been paid by Manchester United, who splurged a British record £75 million for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, Arsenal, who forked out £52 million on Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette and Liverpool, who put down £37 million for Roma winger Mohamed Salah.

Jose Mourinho should not make too many changes to the side that lost 1-2 against Real Madrid in Skopje a few days ago.

"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".

"It's not just for his qualities but my relationship with him".

"In my initial analysis, coming from January and progressing through the months, I was thinking about four players", Mourinho said.

"He was very clear, by showing what he did a year ago, that it was not enough for him", Mourinho told reporters on Friday. He's a player who gives me what I like, which is consistency. Arsenal and Manchester City love to hold possession, allow the fullbacks to attack more than defend.

He said: "To buy lots of good players is important".

Despite his lack of playing time he still managed 8 league goals as the London side captured the title. That is normal, but that is not enough. "I think it's the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", he said.
