Can Swansea City resist Romelu Lukaku-led Manchester United's storm?

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is happy to go without the fourth signing he has been eyeing this summer.

"I told Mr Woodward that obviously my plans were four, but I also told be cool, no pressure from me, do what you think is the best for the club".

Mourinho still wants to bring in one more signing before the transfer window closes in two weeks and, having coached Robben at Stamford Bridge, the Portuguese manager may be keen to work with the 33-year-old again and could sanction a bid for the former Real Madrid and Chelsea man before 31st August, should a deal for Perisic indeed be dead. We are not getting a great price on this bet but it seems like a banker bet so I am wanting to make it.

"I am ready to go without the fourth player, so if we are out of the market I am fine".

Playing away in Wales is never an easy task as the crowd at Swansea is really passionate so this will be a big test for Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side. Clubs are set to vote on September 7 on whether to close the transfer window before the start of next season - something of which Mourinho says he is in favour.

The 22-year-old's current contract expires in 10 months time and after being publicly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho on several occasions last season, it was thought the England global was not in the Portuguese's plans.

Pogba was highly impressive during Sunday's clash and the signing of Nemanja Matic should allow the France worldwide to become more of a goal threat. I think they will win here since they are simply too good not to. "So we're going to do everything we can to achieve this".

Mourinho does have long-term injuries to contend with; Ashley Young's hamstring problem will keep him out until October, while defenders Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo are still some way off full fitness.
