Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would like Manchester United to make a fourth signing, but the Red Devils manager has insisted his board are under no pressure to make further additions.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but managed to win the EFL Cup and the Europa League under the Portuguese coach.

Manchester United have signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window so far.

Mourinho’s men have made an impressive start to the season after 4-0 victories over West Ham United and Swansea City in their opening two Premier League games.

New signings Lukaku and Matic have already made a big impact on the Manchester United side in the opening weeks of the season to help the Red Devils hoist themselves to the top of the table.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday evening, Mourinho discussed his transfer plans in the remaining days of the summer transfer window.

“Everyone knows I would like a fourth player and I cannot hide that because I had that in my mind. But I am happy if I am not going to have that and I don’t think I am going to have that,” Mourinho said.

“I was the first to tell my board not to feel any kind of pressure from me in that respect.

“Probably next summer, I will have to try and get a player from a position I think can make us stronger.”

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final triumph in 2013.
