Premier League: Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says club will curb transfer spending in future

Premier League: Big-money strikers and Rooney's Everton return - five to watch in 2017-18

United were the lowest scorers of the Premier League's top seven last season with just 54. "I think the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea will be fighting tooth and nail for the title". "Winning everything!" the France global told Sky Sports.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho at the Philip II Arena in Skopje, Macedonia, August 8.

Jose Mourinho is urging Manchester United chiefs to launch a £100m bid to sign Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale this summer, according to The Sun.

The first is he hasn't been the same player since 2015 when Mourinho ran him into the ground at Chelsea. "Can we win it? We always had that", Mourinho told the club's official website.

Last season was the first time in his managerial career that he finished a campaign without having added at least one trophy to his collection. [Nemanja] Matic, you can see he's been working hard. But this is modern football.

"We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now", said the Catalan.

United's signings have been thoroughly in keeping with Mourinho's pragmatic approach to the game, the Portuguese having galvanised his squad with extra height and muscle.

United have spent around £150million adding Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof to a star-studded squad.

The veteran striker would be unlikely to even feature until the new year due to the severity of the injury sustained last season playing for United, but it is his presence that Mourinho wants at Old Trafford.

Yankees put RHP Tanaka on DL with shoulder inflammation
Tanaka is in the fourth year of a seven-year $155 million contract that permits him to "opt-out" after this season. Tanaka is the second Yankees pitcher to go on the disabled list this week, after CC Sabathia was placed on Friday.

However, he is without a club as he recovers from cruciate knee ligament damage sustained during the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht in April.

Speaking about the season, Mourinho believes the rest of the team need to step up.

KEY PLAYERS: There's no doubt City are going to score a lot of goals.

"I just think that naturally, a manager in the second season knows the players and knows the club better". I've been waiting for this opportunity.

He will forever be remembered for scoring the Premier League's first goal, but Brian Deane fears those who kick-started the revolution have been all too quickly forgotten about in retirement.

Brighton have been busy in the transfer market themselves since securing promotion from the Championship after two excellent seasons for Chris Hughton's team.

Small contingent of Aussies in the EPL this season and I hope Aaron Mooy and the Aussie boys do very well but they're in with the big boys and the class isn't slowing down.

"Rashford and Lukaku bring in little but of pace but they still lack a bit of pace compared to the other teams". All of these guys who have contributed to where the Premier League is now, who's looking after their welfare or thinking, 'You're part of this, what can we do?'.

Rooney lost his place in both the United and England XIs last season despite being the all-time record goalscorer for both and he will be determined to fight his way back into Gareth Southgate's plans for the 2018 World Cup.
