Mourinho confirms Manchester United in talks with Ibrahimovic

Guardiola denied he is under more pressure this season after City's summer transfer activity saw them bring in five new faces. "People say in my first press conference we are favourites".

The manager said he is building for the future and has since signed goalkeeper Ederson, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker and Danilo.

Four of those new players cost more than £40m but that pales into insignificance compared to the €222m (£197m) Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar. Tottenham is a -150 favorite to win the game outright, with Newcastle paying +400 on a win and +290 on a draw. But I think it is unsustainable. We were not able with those players to find a solution. Sooner or later it's going to finish.

The 35-year-old free agent, who scored 28 goals for the club last season, is battling back to fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in April, though, and Mourinho insisted there is no rush to get a deal done. "The big fail now takes one week in football!" And while he made no secret of his desire to see one more player come in, the 54-year-old is adamant it will not make or break United's season.

Hernandez is now likely to make his Premier League debut for the Hammers against his former club and said of the Red Devils ahead of the game, "It was a great experience [there] ... only happiness".

"We want to put energy in the team for the next five years", said Guardiola.

Asked about extra pressure, he added: "It's the same pressure as I had last season".

Mourinho went for a three at the back formation against Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Tuesday night but I think he might revert to a 4-2-3-1 this weekend.

The Premier League rookies will get a trial by fire against one of the league's best clubs on Saturday and are going off at +950 to win and +400 to play to a draw. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".
