Manchester United reportedly wanted to sign Rafael Varane.

United had seven players involved in the final weekend of the World Cup with Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones, Marcus Rashford, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba representing the club and set to return late.

Mourinho's blatant plea came amidst a groundswell of anger at the antics of the Man United board.

The red half of Manchester have had a unusual transfer window so far.

Manchester United might have purposefully denied Jose Mourinho his wish of a new centre-back in the hope that they can drive him out of the Old Trafford hot-seat.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho did not expect to add to his squad before the close of the English Premier League transfer window yesterday on an unusually quiet deadline day for English clubs.

Elsewhere, 35-year-old former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna has joined MLS side Montreal Impact until the end of the 2018 season, with the option of a further year.

Leicester manager Claude Puel must similarly decide whether to include Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been one of the more outspoken critics of the shortened window with time running out for Spurs to make a single signing this summer.

The club did not consider any other centre-back on Jose Mourinho's wishlist of a similar value.

Throughout the window Mourinho made his displeasure at the lack of business obvious: "My CEO what I want for quite a long time, he knows what I want". As for United, the goal is to win the Premier League, and failing to get three points here will raise some big questions after just the first matchday. "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.

"No miracles", he told a press conference (via United's official website).

"I do not trust that new players will arrive and I'm not confident in that so now I will only focus on the players I have", he said. I like my players and my group. "When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1,000 times".
