The 35-year-old free agent, who scored 28 goals for the club last season, is battling back to fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April, though, and Mourinho insisted there is no rush to get a deal done.
"It started with Real Madrid and Ronaldo going for £80 million and then Bale for £85 million and everything went more expensive".
"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".
Since the end of last season, transfer records have been shattered across the country as over £1 billion has changed hands in a frenzy that could well set a new high for a single window. But as we prepare for our all-important opener against Manchester United, we need to reflect on last season's opener against Chelsea, more importantly, how prepared we were.
Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola claimed it was necessary to reinvigorate City's ageing squad but he will only seek to add one or two new faces in forthcoming seasons. It is hard not to imagine the Ivoirian chafing at slow build-up from the back denying him wide-open spaces behind opposing defences in which to cavort.
What we had was midfielders, wingers, scoring, central defenders scoring goals at set pieces.
Arsenal wanted a penalty for handball against Wilfred Ndidi with referee Mike Dean unmoved, but the equaliser came on the stroke of half-time after Kolasinac unselfishly squared to Welbeck with the goal gaping. "I'm really happy to start the Premier League this weekend because our pre-season was very complete and was a pre-season organised in a way where we start playing MLS teams and ended playing against the best teams in Europe". Antonio Conte, fairly clearly, is not happy that he has been sold, and the Serbian was probably United's best player in the Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United are equipped to maintain his remarkable second season success rate by winning the Premier League title this term.
He and the two boys had traveled to watch the game by plane from London Stansted to the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, and then made the six-hour drive over the border to Skopje to watch their beloved team. "The trend has always to come from the team". Physically dominant, aggressive, and with a fierce determination to never get beaten in the air; Tony Pulis can be proud of his scouting team.
"What would it mean for me to be the Premier League champion?" But the solution is not changing players every season. The two sides have both figured in the transfer market as well, with Arsenal signing Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac while holding onto Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez (thus far, anyhow), while Leicester has brought in Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City and is widely expected to be dealing Riyad Mahrez prior to the Aug. 31 deadline.
Liverpool, trying to fend off Barcelona's interest in £100 million-rated forward Philippe Coutinho, are at Watford. His style is so innately British, he is bound to be a hit at the Hawthorns.
