Jose Mourinho tight-lipped on Southampton defender Jose Fonte signing


Manchester United Jose Mourinho has refused to deny speculation that his club have made a bid for Southampton defender Jose Fonte.

Recent reports have claimed that the Red Devils as well as Arsenal are interested in signing the experienced defender.

But the Portuguese has insisted that he doesn't speak about players belonging to other clubs as he preferred to focus on Eric Bailly who has been impressive for the club in his first two games of the season.

"The market is open until 31st August, but I am very happy with the players I have," he told reporters on Thursday morning.

"I keep saying that I don't talk about players from other clubs.

"[Eric Bailly] is a young boy playing in a completely different competition with a different club, but despite all the pressure and expectation that comes with playing for United, he plays against Leicester at Wembley and is comfortable, leading and communicative.

"I am surprised he has such a strong personality.

"A young boy playing in a completely different competition coming from a club without the same pressure as Man Utd."
