Deadline day round-up: Kovacic in at Chelsea, all quiet at Manchester United


Manchester United's centre-back pursuit ended on what could arguably be deemed to be comical terms. "We have to try and get the best out of every player".

The last time Man Utd and Leicester City met on the opening weekend of a Premier League campaign was back in 1998-99, with Man Utd coming back from 0-2 behind to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford.

One viewer told him on social media: "So Tottenham didn't sign one player and you wanna say Man United had the worst transfer window?!"

Saudi Arabia rules out mediation in Canada row, mulls new measures
Some university professors expressed regret over the decision, but said they still supported Canadian government's position. But she said: "At the same time, we hope that Saudi Arabia and Canada will find a civilized solution to their differences".

United fans can only dream of what might have been.

Courtois' replacement at Stamford Bridge is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when Chelsea paid his €80m release clause at Athletic Bilbao, but reports United are ready to make Leicester City's Harry Maguire the world's costliest defender now seem unlikely to come to fruition.

"In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now".

"And I think United should be big enough, three or four months into the season, if we are seeing the same things as past year, just get rid of him". "You'll see then which teams are candidates". 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".

After they host Leicester, United's other fixtures this month are a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on August 19 and a home match against Tottenham Hotspur on August 27. I'm going to enjoy this season. Reportedly the money was too much, but not by a great deal.

His performance at the 2018 World Cup for France though only confirmed of his standing as one of the top talents in the world at his position, which garnered him plenty of interest this summer during the transfer window. Therefore Manchester United would likely be incentivised to offer Pogba a better contract to ward off Barcelona or drive his transfer fee up for a move in January or next summer.
