Mourinho is very fond of the Welsh winger and there's been plenty of speculation surrounding a move to Man United in each of the last three summers.

United would put matters to rest minutes later though, when Shaw's first touch from an Alexis Sanchez cross took a fortuitous bounce and the former Southampton defender pounced and fired a shot past Schmeichel to double his team's lead.

Chelsea shattered the world-record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (US$92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian worldwide Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champion Real Madrid.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "Now it's serious stuff".

But despite that positive start United allowed Leicester to dictate much of the first half, often giving up space in the middle of the pitch and inviting the visitors to attack them. "The list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and after training I will speak with that group of players because everyone is different physically and mentally".

Now it looks like no new arrivals will be heading to Old Trafford in this window.unless Mourinho has something up his sleeve.

"It is hard for me to understand, we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho. He's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels.

"A lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true".

Last season may have been United's highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired but the 19-point gap to runaway Premier League champions Manchester City underlined the improvements required. Again, I know the words you want me to say or not to say. If he remains at Old Trafford beyond the 31 August European transfer deadline how do the club, and Mourinho, manage the World Cup-winning star?

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have not given up on signing Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, according to reports coming out of Spain.
