Sam Allardyce: Manchester United's negotiations have broken down

Man Utd transfer news Leicester star Harry Maguire has been linked with the Red Devils

Man Utd transfer news Leicester star Harry Maguire has been linked with the Red Devils

The club believe they have delivered over the course of the last two windows on the agreed targets with around £73m invested this window in Fred, Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant, as well £35m for Alexis Sanchez in January.

But Allardyce has some sympathy for United's chiefs, given the prices they were quoted for various players.

The Chilean worldwide cited Spanish side Barcelona who signed Vidal from Bayern Munich in the close season.

However, clubs in the Premier League can still still sell players or send them out on loan to non-Premier League clubs.

"My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second when I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, it is hard to believe that we finished second because you [the media] are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners", Mourinho said. One player linked with a move away before the end of the month is Chelsea's Eden Hazard. In a post on Instagram, he wrote: "I want to thank everybody at @liverpoolfc for welcoming me into the family and being there for me through the tough and the good times, I wish you all the success in the future and I'll miss you all". Yet, Mourinho will be looking to see his team collect three points in front of their own fans. It's not like Manchester United to do it like that. He likes to paint pictures, I'm painting a picture as, you need to work with what you have now. As for United, the goal is to win the Premier League, and failing to get three points here will raise some big questions after just the first matchday.

Old-time plane crashes in Swiss Alps, killing 20 on board
Twenty people died after a vintage World War II aircraft crashed into a Swiss mountainside, police said on Sunday (Aug 5). Police spokeswoman Anita Senti told reporters that it was with "sad certainty" that "the 20 people aboard perished".

'I can't remember the last time I had a break and a long vacation, ' the 29-year-old told United Review ahead of Friday evening's clash against Leicester City. I'm going to enjoy this season.

"I'm not confident", he said. That's the only thing good enough for them. Reportedly the money was too much, but not by a great deal.

Another player who has come through an uncertain summer with United is Anthony Martial, who was left out of his France's World Cup squad, prompting comments from his agent that he wished to leave Old Trafford to safeguard his global future.

Fair comment, or agenda-driven Manchester United vitriol?
