It's a nice number, and I asked the permission of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

United went ahead and completed a deal in signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton for £75m ($96.7m).

Things have changed since, according to Haughton, with United impressed by the veteran's speedy recovery from knee surgery: "SunSport understands the United medical staff are amazed by the Swede's recovery this summer, with boss Jose Mourinho expected to offer last season's top scorer a short-term deal until the end of the campaign".

Within a month, United had made a dismal start to the season; there was a 4-0 League Cup defeat against MK Dons, Welbeck had been sold and the three-at-the-back experiment was quickly unravelling.

Jelle van Damme is feeling like a proud papa these days.

Former Manchester United striker Yorke has backed Lukaku to embrace the pressure of playing for the Red Devils despite suggestions the former Chelsea striker could thrive in Old Trafford's unforgiving environment. "He is a player that normally plays in the last third", added Mourinho. "There will be a very big announcement soon, it will be huge", the former Manchester United striker said.

Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly holding on to Serbia global Matic until they complete the signing of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, which is believed to be close.

"I've got to focus on a club perspective first and help the team win as many trophies as possible", said Lingard.

"We need two more players, I would say".

Mourinho declined to comment on his reported interest in Matic on Friday, but the Portuguese confirmed that the club were still aiming to sign two more players. "We need two more, but at least one".

He has been linked with moves for Ivan Perisic, Eric Dier and Nemanja Matic as he searches for a new winger and a holding midfielder. Matic has been left out of his club's forthcoming tour of China but Mourinho would not discuss a reunion with the man he signed for Chelsea in January 2014. We want four so it's 50 per cent of the job done.

"But why not for us to wait for such a good player that gave us so much?"

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player", he said.

'What he brings is hopefully goals.

Lacazette set the Gunners back £52m as Arsene Wenger looked to his homeland to find a 20-goal striker. However, the Old Trafford club were successful in beating the Blues in signing the Premier League striker.

"The step up, no disrespect to Everton, comes with great expectation and scrutiny".

In his first press conference since May, Mourinho offered an insight into Man United's plans but admitted Ed Woodward faced a tough task in the current transfer window.
