Craig Bellamy has criticised Manchester United for their "desperate" scramble for a centre-back in the closing days of the summer transfer window.

"[Paul] arrived on Monday, [feeling] happy, proud, with desire to work".

They also say that he has NOT demanded the same wage of Sanchez, who is the club's top earner.

The next and final conversation was the intermediary telling United that Godin had signed a new contract.

However his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho has appeared strained at times and after some comments from his manager after France's World Cup win it was reported that Pogba wanted to leave.

The Old Trafford faithful had demanded the club make a strong statement after United finished 19 points off the top of the Premier League previous year.

However, the Red Devils are believed to have informed the La Liga giants that they aren't desirous to strike Pogba off their books.

Manchester United begins its season off on the right foot, with World Cup-winner Paul Pogba scoring alongside Romelu Lukaku.

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

A deal for Alderweireld was quickly considered too complicated, with Tottenham playing hard ball early on, while other targets were considered too short-term.

How Mourinho reacts from now will be dictated to some extent by results, but the key objectives at the turn of the year have all been fulfilled as far as the club are concerned.

Mourinho wanted a third choice home-grown eligible goalkeeper and Lee Grant was signed.

Man Utd failed to make any deadline day signings despite Jose Mourinho's request for a new centre-back. Internally, the greatest frustration for Mourinho has been waiting for the return those players who had the longest World Cup campaigns. He said on Thursday that some of Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester.

Speaking at Carrington, Mourinho said: "If they feel they can help us, 20 minutes, ten minutes half an hour..."

"I'm astonished that a club of their ilk, a club who with their clout, a club that finished so far off the pace previous year in terms of the points gap - we know they finished second but the points gap was huge - that they have done little or nothing", Burley said.
