Paul Scholes slams former club amid Liverpool and Man City spending

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier League's but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

It's time to get excited for the return of the Premier League. Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer. Sometimes its also hard to believe I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues, and I keep thinking the second position past year was one of my biggest achievements in England'.

Boateng has a chequered injury record - he missed 181 days last season alone mainly because of hamstring problems - and United are keen on a loan deal with an option to buy rather then meeting Bayern's demand to pay €50 million in a series of instalments.

Both clubs finished below United last season in the Premier League yet Mourinho claims they are projected as "serial winners" despite failing to land a trophy since 2012 and 2008 respectively. The home game was a little bit different with Mané getting sent off.

That's the claim of Manchester United legend Paul Scholes. We have to prepare for this season with good possibilities. You've got Chelsea, Tottenham, so it's going to be a tough season, but we're really up for the challenge and we want to go and prove that we are the best team in the league.

Champions-elect Manchester City have shelled out the big bucks to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.

Jorginho struggled in the Chelsea side that City swept aside 2-0 thanks to a Sergio Aguero brace during Sunday's Community Shield and, after the match, Guardiola hinted his club might be closing in on a new signing. Another target, Fred, joined Manchester United.

"But he's got great experience, he's been at top clubs, he's been in hard positions before, he's in a hard position now I think, but he needs to try to find a way to get out of it".

"John, for the qualities he has, I think he can play there - but I dont know, we have never tried him there".
