Manchester United's transfer business is "75 percent" complete but the club is still looking for a winger, manager Jose Mourinho said ahead of their Premier League opener against West Ham on Sunday.

"We had three players as you know, one defender, one midfielder and one attacking player but for this beginning of the season we lost important players too, we lost [Marcos] Rojo, [Ashley] Young, [Luke] Shaw, Zlatan, we lost players for injuries so I think between the players we lost and we got we are in a similar situation", he said. United have been linked with moves for Inter's Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale, as well as full-backs Danny Rose (Tottenham) and Serge Aurier (PSG).

However, Mourinho added that one key factor to their title charge at Old Trafford will sharing the scoring load amongst numerous players, as was the case at his previous clubs, and hopes the onus will not be left exclusively on the shoulders of new striker Rolmelu Lukaku.

Last season Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the only player to reach double figures in league goals with 17, while Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney were the next best with just six goals each. We got a central midfielder, a striker, obviously the 25% would be for a player from the sides, but we have players.

This much was self evident, when United's new No.9 - the number which Ibrahimovic occupied last season - Romelu Lukaku deemed it necessary to seek the Swede's permission before taking his desired squad number. "He wants more football at the highest level so we are having conversations and discussing the possibility of him staying for the second part of the season". We are not desperate to have it (a deal) done or not. "I understand the reality of the market, the numbers and my club by doing 75% of what I asked, the club did well".

"We have got a central defender who can play in many other positions, such as right-back and central midfield". I'm not in a position to say I'm not happy.

He added: "If the remaining 25 per cent doesn't arrive by August 31, I will not moan".

"But if we cannot strengthen the team in this area, we have players we can trust".
