However, with Mourinho's eye for detail and a squad of great goal scorers and top tacticians on the club's benches, the chances of the Red Devils scaling the heights of the next Champions League are looking rosier than ever. But reports state that the Ivan Perisic deal is not dead and United will hope to get their key target to Old Trafford.

But when you consider he was chosen by Antonio Conte to play in 35 of the 38 league games last season, starting 30 of them, the derision from Chelsea fans may be more than a little unfair.

"I think Neymar is going to happen [to be] the same (as Pogba)".

Matic made his debut appearance for the Red Devils last night, in which he played for 45 minutes, following his £40m move earlier this week.

"I'm very happy because I'm now here with this team and this club".

That makes the £89 million Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba last summer seem quite small, with Jose Mourinho, at the time, saying something similar.

This is where the signing of Nemanja Matic comes in. The arrival of Matic will give Pogba more freedom to go forward.

"The manager just tells me to play my football and continue doing what I'm doing", Pereira said.

"The club did a fantastic job, absolutely fantastic, by getting three of them, which is hard in the insane market where we are now. I think I will get better and better and I hope I will help the team to achieve something this season".

We've teamed up with Football365 to write club-by-club previews for the new season. I tried to give my best to control the game well, to give the game balance, and I think, for the first game, it was good for me.

"The plan is not to have a good team", he said.

However, the newspaper says that despite the frustration at dealing with the Italian giants, United remain confident they will eventually reach an agreement to sign the £48m-rated winger.

And with team-mates Lukaku, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira and Marcus Rashford all likely to be prime beneficiaries, there could be thrilling times ahead in the Theatre of Dreams.
