Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho avoids Premier League title question

Anthony Martial has been allowed to leave Manchester United's pre-season tour of the U.S. so he can attend the birth of his second child.

United finished 19-points behind Guardiola's Manchester City side as they romped to the Premier League title in record-breaking fashion.

The Red Devils start their Premier League season with a home match against Leicester City on 10 August, and are away at Percy Tau's new club Brighton & Hove Albion the following week.

One thing is for sure, even the words of Pep Guardiola and his complete denial of wanting to sign Miralem Pjanic still hasn't managed to put an end to this persistent rumour...

Mourinho then listed out a couple of examples, probably in anger, as he stated that he wanted to play all the pre-season matches in Los Angeles.

Jose Mourinho tells ESPN FC that the World Cup was the flawless habitat for Paul Pogba as he could 'only think about football'.

Pogba finds it harder to focus at United - Mourinho

United have brought in three players for about £68m this summer, and the 55-year-old told ESPN he would like to sign "two more players".

However, Mourinho finds himself short of options on the right side of defence following an injury to United skipper Antonio Valencia in the pre-season friendly against San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

"Of course I'm not happy". So against Leicester and Brighton the situation is not unbelievable for us.

"Knowing Anthony the way I know him I think if you can get the best out of him, he's up there ability-wise with the best in the league".

And he believes the obvious lack of consistency can't be acceptable to Mourinho either if he wants to remain in the Old Trafford hotseat beyond this season.

"We think having a player like Fred in the squad - who is more technical, more quality of passing in short spaces - he can maybe connect [with] the attacking players".
