Bosnich explain why Man Utd must be patient with Mourinho

Manchester United Jose Mourinho has given updates on the club’s summer transfer activities as he failed to confirm or deny if they will be making any more signings this summer.

United have spent £75million on Brazil midfielder Fred, Portugal Under-21 defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant, as well as tying Marouane Fellaini to a new contract.

Alexis Sanchez also moved to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January, but Mourinho hinted that he could go into the transfer market again before the deadline on August 9.

“I’ve no idea,” he said at United’s training base in LA. “I'm not going to lie to you. I'm not going to say somebody is coming or nobody is coming. We did Lee Grant because we have a fantastic young goalkeeper (Joel Pereira) who needs to play football.

“Joel is a Manchester United goalkeeper but, two years without football, he has to play. And to protect that position we got Lee with experience in Championship and Stoke City in the Premier League, so he is ready to fulfil that position. Joel is here with us. It’s good for him to play but then he will go on loan.

“Fred we did quite a long time ago. We started the process. We lost Michael Carrick and I think Fred is the kind of player we need to complement the qualities of our midfield players.

“Dalot is injured, a small injury, a small surgery. We didn't want to lose him because of that, and he's recovering really well. We think he can start training back in England, not ready for start of the season.”
