Jose Mourinho has warned Manchester United face a difficult season if they do not strengthen their squad before the transfer window shuts on Thursday. United's build-up to the new campaign has been dominated by Mourinho's clear frustration over transfers, which has brought his relationship with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward into the spotlight.

The only arrivals into Old Trafford this summer have been Brazilian midfielder Fred, teenage full-back Diogo Dalot and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant, leaving Mourinho to cast envious glances at how his rivals are shaping up for the new Premier League season.

The Portuguese told MUTV ahead of his side's pre-season friendly 0-1 defeat to Bayern Munich: "My CEO knows what I want and I still have a few days to wait and see what happens. The other clubs who compete with us are really strong and already have fantastic teams. Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody. If we don't make our team better it will be a difficult season for us."
