Jose Mourinho left frustrated as Manchester United fail to land centre-back

Benik Afobe was re-signed by Wolves for £10m...only to be sold to Stoke for £12m a few days later

Victory in the Premier League opener was a much-needed shot in the arm after weeks of doom and gloom, with summer target Harry Maguire's inclusion in the Foxes' line-up serving as a reminder of what they missed.

Unlike in England, the window for the rest of Europe's leading leagues doesn't close until later in August, meaning Premier League clubs have faced even more inflated prices when buying from the continent.

City won the league by 19 points, finishing with record goals and wins in the process.

Neil Warnock already has his motivational speech prepared ahead of Cardiff's opening Premier League fixture at Bournemouth.

Mike Pence calls for creation of Space Force by 2020
With the end of shuttle missions in 2011, America pays Russian Federation to launch U.S. astronauts into space. He also says that the current system, with the Air Force in charge of military space operations, is not ideal.

"So, when you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that repeated 1,000 times is still a lie".

"I think by the end of November or December, you don't need words - you will see by then which teams are candidates to win the Premier League".

Inspired by Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and David Silva, City's eye-catching style earned comparisons with the finest teams in English football history. Yes sir we've all that and more to sink our teeth into as the first weekend of a new season crashes over us like a wave, and it all starts tonight at Old Trafford. That tends to be true, but what the North London club does have is a strong squad and a belief and understanding of Mauricio Pochettino's system.

Though United finished second behind their cross-city rivals in 17/18, they can at least claim the bragging rights to having the classiest dressing room in Manchester.

Liverpool FC could make one final attempt to sign France star
Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah says he's happy with the club's transfer business this summer and doesn't believe further additions are needed.

Spurs had nine players in Russian Federation until the final weekend and they only returned to training on Monday, with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris having differing levels of fitness.

"Winning is the best motivation and we will try to continue what we have done".

"I came back on Monday so it was very hard for the legs and the stamina but we played very well".

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said in his press conference earlier today, as per The Mirror.
