Bayern Munich 1-0 Manchester United: Mourinho warns of tough times if they fail to improve squad after final pre-season loss
Portuguese repeats his plea for new players ahead of the start of the EPL campaign
Manchester United could be in for a tough Premier League season if they do not add quality players before the transfer window closes, manager Jose Mourinho has said.
United have been relatively quiet in the transfer market, adding Brazil midfielder Fred, 19-year-old Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant.

“If we don’t make our team better, it’ll be a difficult season for us,” Mourinho told MUTV after United’s 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Sunday.
“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.
“My CEO knows what I want and I still have a few days to wait and see what happens.”
