What the managers sayManager Jose Mourinho of Manchester United watches from the touchline during the pre-season friendly match against Bayern Munich.
Courtois' replacement at Stamford Bridge is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who became the most expensive goalkeeper in history when Chelsea paid his €80m release clause at Athletic Bilbao, but reports United are ready to make Leicester City's Harry Maguire the world's costliest defender now seem unlikely to come to fruition.
Leicester City will face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the opening round of fixtures in the 2018/19 Premier League.
"If Liverpool can get some impetus, then we don't know how Manchester City will react under pressure if a team can stay close to them at the end of the season". "The market closes today so there's time at least for me to stop thinking about it".
"I think despite Boateng's injuries that he brings leadership to Man United, which they don't have", Hislop told ESPN FC.
Chelsea confirm signing Kepa Arrizabalaga on seven-year contract for £71.6m
Champions League-winning goalkeeper Keylor Navas is hell-bent on staying at Real Madrid despite the arrival of Thibaut Courtois . Kepa had been with Athletic since 2004, rising through the youth ranks. "It's been a very important decision for me", he said.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils have been drenched in frustration in recent weeks, having failed to add to the early additions of Fred, Lee Grant, and Diogo Dalot.
On the chances of Vardy or Maguire featuring in the season opener: "If we are serious I think they can not participate in the first game, with just five days training with the team".
The Germany worldwide is aiming to win one more Champions League title in his career.
Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku were among the last players to return to training and the Portuguese boss will be desperate for them to reach full fitness again. In football, you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now.
Finally, can you give us an insight into what you say to your players and staff at the beginning of a new season? I was told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane.
