And with the possibility of being without 12 star players for the opening clash against Leicester, Mourinho knows he has to dip back into the market.

Midfield maestro Fred was brought in for £52million from Shakhtar Donestk, with United also signing young right-back Diogo Dalot from Porto for £19m.

While they also secured the services of goalkeeper Lee Grant from Stoke as he looks to provide competition for David De Gea.

But Mourinho isn’t too optimistic of potential signings, he told ESPN: “One thing is what I would like. Another thing is what is going to happen.”

And when pressed about how many players he wants to bring to Old Trafford, he added: “I would get two more players.”

Mourinho has insisted he won’t target a right-back, despite skipper Antonio Valencia limping off with a calf injury after just seven minutes against San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

While Matteo Darmian is being tracked by Juventus and Napoli.

The Special One, 55, said on Valencia: “I don’t think he will be available to play any one of the three matches of the International Champions Cup.

“It’s not a moment to take any risks. Antonio is a player that’s not a young boy anymore. We have to take care of him and to try to have him ready for the start of the season.

“We bought a fantastic player [Diogo Dalot]. Young, 19 years old, but I think probably the best right-back at that age in European football.

“But he had a surgery last May and is recovering for that, so one more reason to take care of Antonio.”
