"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready.

"I focus on just what we have, and we go with everything we have to the first match". Barcelona has also confirmed that Gomes will go to Goodison on loan with the Toffees paying a €2.25m loan fee.

"They have to play, that's the most important thing".

That is Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

Manchester United's hopes of signing a centre-back before the transfer deadline rest on clubs and agents lowering their demands, sources have told ESPN FC.

At right-back, United might kick off the campaign with Matteo Darmian, who asked to be sold this summer.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he's happy to count on Toby Alderweireld this season.

The duo were the club's top defensive targets all summer and 29-year-old was said to be keen to leave White Hart Lane.

Mourinho said it was "time to stop thinking about the market" and, unless there is a dramatic change throughout the day, that means United will be trying to win their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's final season without the new centre-half that the manager had identified as a priority. United saw seen two bids rejected, the higher of around £60m.

But the club's board are understood to have never been open to selling their club-record signing, who still has three years left on the deal signed when returning from Juventus in 2016 for a then world-record sum.

Leicester manager Claude Puel must similarly decide whether to include Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire.

But with Alderweireld set to be available for just £25million next summer, Spurs may cut their losses in the New Year. "We have a good relationship, we are friends".

However, we can compare Alderweireld's 16/17 season where the Belgium global played 30 matches for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Although the transfer window can be unbearable at times, it's been great to see the work that Liverpool have conducted.

However, BBC's David Ornstein moved quickly to claim the rumours are unfounded. The £60m club-record signing from Leicester started in City's Community Shield win over Chelsea last weekend and could be unleashed at Arsenal on Sunday, too.

But at least Sanchez has given him cause for optimism, scoring against Real Madrid and AC Milan in glamour friendlies, showing the drive, determination and decisiveness of old.

Unlike in England, the window for the rest of Europe's leading leagues doesn't close until later in August, meaning Premier League clubs have faced even more inflated prices when buying from the continent.

In contrast, Leicester City have been busy in this transfer window and spending their money wisely following the departure of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City for £60m.

Pochettino's side get their Premier League campaign up and running away at Newcastle United on Saturday and the manager accepts he has hard team selection decisions ahead.
