Mourinho: Manchester United were very clever in the transfer market”

Manchester United and Manchester City were among five clubs who voted against the Premier League's plans to move up the transfer deadline, a source has confirmed to ESPN FC.

Not typically known for his record with youth players, despite him trying to insist otherwise when initially revealed as Manchester United manager, it's good to see Mourinho actually have some faith in younger players; a club tradition.

Mourinho emphasized that he would like his squad together from Day One in preseason in an ideal world and that this change could allow business to be done a lot earlier in the summer, just as the Red Devils did this season. "But I was mentally prepared, I was just waiting for the opportunity to come", he told the BBC.

In order for the vote to have been passed, the league needed a two thirds majority in favour of the change - meaning 14 of the 20 Premier League teams had to vote for moving the date.

"Two players at the end of the season who are going to sit, analyse what they did and what they want to do". What we promote is to try to speak with UEFA and Federation Internationale de Football Association so that all the countries finish at the same time.

Speaking to the Times, the Manchester United gaffer denied that he had a downer-effect on past teams.

European leagues will still be able to buy and sell players until 31 August, but the Premier League window will close on August 9th next summer.

"I hope it goes to the ideal situation, which is to close for every championship".

The Portuguese still made it clear that he wanted to be a part of the club for "many years" though, as he added: "I can say I would like to stay many years". We try to play positive, we try to play good, but we try to win.

"I welcome it", Clement said. I think the market should finish when we start the season, it's too long, too large.

The report details that Rose remains unsettled in North London and that manager Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of Shaw after working with him at Southampton.

That's the beauty of Dream Team Weekender - there are no budget limitations so you can pick any player available from this weekend's fixtures, with Man City v Liverpool the pick of the bunch.
