Jamie Redknapp insists Jose Mourinho has made a statement this summer transfer window in the Premier League with Manchester United.

The Portuguese boss completed his business early this summer, sealing deals for Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba.

Man United have done extremely well in the transfer market and Mourinho has been able to get started with all four of his fundamental signings.

Speaking about Man United, Redknapp claims Mourinho has turned the side into one rivals will fear again.

“They made a statement very early in the window, they didn’t mess around. Jose Mourinho brought in the players he wanted,” he said.

“You can see they suddenly look like the Manchester United of old again, with that fear factor back.

“I would have to say Paul Pogba has been the best signing. He’s more than a footballer, he even transcends Manchester United to a certain extent.

“Everyone talks about the haircuts, the kits, but kids absolutely adore him. I think he will be a star for the league.

“It’s all well and good having the best mangers, but we need the best players here as well in this country.”

United have made a spectacular start to the campaign under Mourinho, taking maximum points from games against Bournemouth, Hull and Southampton.

After the international break his side will be put to the test in the Manchester Derby on September 10, hopes are United are able to keep the run going and build some momentum for the season.
