What panics me a little bit with Manchester United is just they're short in one or two areas, of course they are, but now it looks like they've got three or four players and they're going round the block now with it.

And with the transfer window closing at 5pm today, time is running out for any new players to sign.

Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race.

Former Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy questions Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's transfer strategy after missing out on his top defensive targets. As it stands, Alderweireld and Maguire are considered too expensive, while Bayern Munich have knocked back a loan move for Boateng.

Manchester United fans are absolutely furious with the club's hierarchy following the end of the summer transfer window.

While names like Jerome Boateng, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina have all been linked with a move to Old Trafford, it has been clear since last season that Mourinho's preference would be Toby Alderweireld.

Mourinho said on Sunday his team could be in for a "difficult" season if there were no new arrivals before the deadline, set for 5 p.m. on Thursday. Matic, we weren't expecting him to be injured and needing a surgery after the World Cup.

"So I think this week is going to be very interesting to see whether any of them get over the line".

"The information I have is no", said Mourinho when asked if he would be adding to his squad.

As for the main challengers, Neville lists United, Liverpool and Chelsea are the only potential rivals for City's crown.
