Asked whether it is necessary that some of the players leave the club, Mourinho said: ‘I do not. The club is stable, well-organized, and with an adequate number of players in the roster.
‘We, as a club, we want to comply with the provisions of the financial fair play, and we are currently in a very stable situation.’
‘I like the composition and profile of players that we have. I like the fact that we have a very young team, with three or four experienced players who are in the prime of their careers. ‘

About Wayne Rooney
‘Until August 31 we will see if we can sign anyone who can improve our squad, but my focus and ambition is to work with these guys. I can say it’s a pleasure to work with them. I was missing this fantastic working relation. Not just for them, but for me. After a week I’m still the happy one because my boys were fantastic.’
‘If Wayne is a second choice for Man United, then the national team will be affected,’ Mourinho told BBC Sport.
