Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United fans that he will do everything he can to try and bring the Premier League title to Old Trafford this season.

The Red Devils have made a flying start to Mourinho’s second season in charge at Old Trafford, having won all three of their games to leave them flying high at the top of the table.

Manchester United finished sixth in Mourinho’s first campaign at the helm last term and the Portugese coach is aiming to bring the Red Devils their first title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired back in 2013.

And although Mourinho admits that he still needs another summer transfer window to complete his team at Old Trafford, the Portuguese coach is desperate to try and win the title this season.

Mourinho told the Times: “We’re going to fight against very good teams, but we’re going to try.

“I have said three [summer] transfer windows is what I need to have the team I want to have, the team I think can bring Manchester United to the top of English football and to close the gap to the top of European football again, and I still think we need that third transfer window, but I’m not going to wait for the third transfer window to try to reach it.

“Again, I like to accelerate. I don’t like to sleep on a slow watch, a slow timing, and let it go.

“I like to chase. I don’t like to wait.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday when they take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.

The Red Devils have scored 10 goals without reply in their opening three games in the top flight.
