Man United holds on to beat Real Madrid

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho Ed Woodward Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho wants Ed Woodward to cough up for two more signings

Goalkeeper David De Gea and midfielder Fred have now linked up with the squad but Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof are not in the US after taking time off following the World Cup.

It's been a rather dismal pre-season tour of the United States, with injuries and the World Cup robbing Jose Mourinho of some key players as the Red Devils have failed to impress.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Herrera picked up an ankle knock during the 4-1 defeat to Liverpool in MI on Saturday, while Bailly suffered a similar problem during the victory over AC Milan in Los Angeles last week.

United landed in Manchester on Wednesday morning to begin preparations for their final friendly against Bayern Munich in Germany on Sunday and the start of the Premier League season against Leicester at Old Trafford on August 10.

"If you look to the players Chelsea and Liverpool have in pre-season, especially these two teams but also Arsenal, I think if you compare, you see the difference of the situation". These are the players that we have plus Lindelof, that started training two days ago, plus Marcus Rashford, Jones and Lukaku, because they gave to the group and to the team three days of their holidays.

It saw United finish their troubled tour on a high before flying back to Manchester in the early hours of Wednesday, but the result did little to change Mourinho's mind. "My professional players were fantastic all pre-season because they know we play against good teams, against good opponents".

'But I didn't learn anything.

Jose Mourinho does not know if Anthony Martial will return to Manchester United as doubts grow over the disgruntled forward's future at Old Trafford.

United announced the signing of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk on a five-year deal at the beginning of June, but hasn't featured heavily in any of their previous pre-season matches because of his time at the World Cup.
