How does Arsenal's spending compare to the top six? Get your calculators out

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is already ramping up the mind games and we're still a little under two weeks from the start of the Premier League season.

Indeed, with Chelsea set to take on Arsenal at Wembley on Sunday in the Community Shield, rival manager Arsene Wenger has already become the focus of his attention.

"If you add up the amounts clubs have spent in the last three or four years I think maybe you will find a surprise," Mourinho said, in an obvious attempt to add pressure on the Gunners...

Rumours are abound that Angel Di Maria could leave Manchester United for PSG as soon as this week, after the Argentine failed to catch a flight to meet up with his team-mates in San Jose.

Michael Carrick remains key for Manchester United's midfield

Goals from Wayne Rooney, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj lifted Manchester United to a 3-1 win over Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.

CHICAGO -- If Michael Carrick feels threatened by the arrival of top-class midfielders at Manchester United, he's not showing it. The 34-year-old has made 379 appearances since arriving at Old Trafford from Tottenham in 2006, and this season he will be joined in the midfield ranks by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin.

"You want the best players here, and it's good for the squad," Carrick told ESPN FC after United's 3-1 preseason victory over Barcelona on Saturday in Santa Clara. "Basti...

Blunt Van Gaal, Di Maria questions, Vidal benefit, Ramos remains, more

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has warned his side not to make another poor start, with the new Premier League season less than two weeks away.

Louis Van Gaal's bluntness remains unmatched and refreshing. In a world where managers never talk down their players in public and seem to go out of their way to stroke egos, the Dutchman speaks his mind.

As Netherlands manager at the 2014 World Cup, he explained one tactical switch -- moving Daley Blind from the flank to a more central position -- by saying that Blind wasn't "fast enough" against his opponent that day. When asked why he removed Nigel de Jong against Argentina in the semifinal,...

Van Gaal's mixed second seasons a warning to Manchester United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Louis van Gaal has to be mindful of criticising his Manchester United players.

If Truus Van Gaal has her way, then husband Louis is entering his penultimate season in management. Manchester United's manager has previously claimed he will retire from football at the end of his current contract to spend more time with his wife.

However, he has also said that he could be tempted to stay on beyond 2017, but that's if he is given such a choice. At some point, he needs to win the Premier League to repeat the success at winning a title at all four previous clubs he has managed. At...
