"I appreciate the fact that he has chose to join this club because it would have been hard to have him if he didn't want to come".
Matic was the third signing of the summer for United, after Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku moved from Everton for £75 million and Swedish center back Victor Lindelof joined from Benfica for £31 million.
The Red Devils only suffered one pre-season defeat all summer - as Neymar scored for Barcelona - after victories over LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Valerenga and Sampdoria. "And I think that's the problem". It leads to another lingering question about United's transfer business this summer, especially in attack.
"But they've strengthened again, they needed to". All are capable of that Martial magic, some very consistently, and all would be primary options anywhere else.

The final position Mourinho could strengthen is left-back as it was something of a problem area for United last season - although the newspaper does say Mourinho is ready to give Luke Shaw another chance after being impressed with his response to a frustrating campaign previous year.
However, things have been different for Pogba this time around. I am sure this is one of his own objectives and goals he has set himself. That should not be overlooked in all of this, even if it also shouldn't overlooked that Mourinho isn't completely happy just yet.
