Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho declined to answer when asked if he would be confident of challenging for the Premier League title next season with no further additions to his squad.
United came second last term, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, and have since signed three players – midfielder Fred, full-back Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant.
When the question about his squad and challenging next season was put to him on Tuesday at a press conference in Los Angeles, Mourinho replied: “I don’t answer to your question.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the Portuguese had been quoted in an interview with ESPN as saying, when asked how many new signings he would like: “I would get two more players.”
He also said: “One thing is what I would like. Another thing is what is going to happen.”
