Mourinho is expected to finally land Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba in the next few days after earlier completing deals for Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The former Chelsea boss is delighted with the business the club has conducted since he’s been in charge but when asked about his the work of his Premier League rivals in the market he refused to get drawn into a debate, saying it’s “not ethical” to discuss other club’s deals.

He said: “I only speak about us. I heard already two of my colleagues from other clubs speaking about us. I do not like that. It is not ethical.

“There are things that when I do (them), it is not ethical but when others do (that), nobody says that and everything is normal. But the reality is I don’t speak about the others. They can do what they want.”

On United’s dealings so far, he added: “I think our market was good. We made decisions. We decided to bring four players, not 10, that are Man United level and that we think can really improve the squad and not just be one more. This is a profile of our market.

“We have a young central defender who needs time to be a top one but has top potential and we believe a lot in him, we bought a creative player and we know the quality he has, we bought a super striker and we are going to get a very good midfield player. So we try to give balance.

“So I am happy with my squad and with the effort the club did and is still doing for us, and the others – it is their problem. They can do what they want.”

Manchester United face Premier League champions Leicester City in the Community Shield on Sunday and they are 17/20 with Titanbet to win the match in normal time.
