Manchester United make deadline day move to sign Willian from Chelsea

You can be him. Sort

According to the English newspaper The Sun, "The Special One" made a last-minute attempt to contract Brazilian winger Willian, to provide plenty of offensive options for the Red Devils in the new season.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has said that the strength of his squad will be tested when the Red Devils return to action after the worldwide break.

On came Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini and over the next 20 minutes, Manchester United took a strong grip of the contest, with both substitutes scoring in a 2-0 win.

Whilst it has been known to the media all summer that the self-proclaimed "God of Manchester" - Zlatan Ibrahimović - would be arriving back at M1, many attacking names have been linked. And Henrikh Mkhitaryan can play on the wing as well if needed. The £31m rated defender, who was signed from Benfica, is yet to feature in any of United's Premier League matches this season.

Lindelof, 23, is with the Sweden squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Belarus.

They have failed in bids for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale.

However, United could yet revive their interest in Perisic with the Express citing Sky Sports reporter Alan Irwin as saying that a deal taking the Croatian global to Old Trafford could still go through today.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has been given permission to leave the Algeria national team's training camp as he closes in on a possible transfer away from the east Midlands.

Inconsistent form and further games missed due to injury meant that Shaw fell down the United pecking list and even when fit, struggled to make the first team.

Jose Mourinho, one of the biggest exports of Portuguese football, will surprisingly face the biggest club in Portugal for the first time as opposition manager in a European competition.
