Mourinho lamented the absence of players to work with during the preseason and the lack of acquisition of transfer targets, saying it would be a "difficult season" for the Red Devils due to minor spending compared to rivals like Manchester City and Liverpool. That is what the French coach is dreaming about according to the newspaper 'L'Equipe' with the former Real Madrid coach being tempted to try his hand in the Premier League.
Mourinho is adamant that last season's second-placed finish in the Premier League should be considered as one of his biggest achievements, despite finishing 19 points behind Manchester City.
United were never keen on signing Toby Alderweireld as their scouting reports indicated he operates better in a three-man defence, but Tottenham were interested in taking some United players to north London.
"United seem to be not too sure what's going on".

MOHAMED SALAH set about proving he is no one-season wonder with Liverpool's first goal as they cruised past West Ham . Still fit and firing, he began the season in style with a Man of the Match display against West Ham United on Sunday.
And Mourinho also disagreed with Woodward over the future of Anthony Martial, with the United manager ready to offload the French forward as opposed to wasting him on the bench. However, should Zidane contact the United hierarchy about becoming their manager, they will need to make a quick decision or risk losing the Frenchman to another Premier League club.
The 23-year-old left-back has endured a hard last few seasons, mainly due to fitness issues, and many expected him to leave Old Trafford this summer, a period fraught with weight concerns played out across social media.
United gaffer Jose Mourinho claims he "needed six changes not three" in his side's season opener, with Anthony Martial seeing no game as other options had to take priority.
