Manchester United are reportedly set to demand Polish striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich in a sensational swap deal for Anthony Martial. The squad flew back to Manchester immediately after the game against Real and will return to training on Friday.

The player responded yesterday by tweeting: "Thank you all for your posts".

"My little Swan is fine, for the mother it was more hard, but thank God she is better now".

The forward also noted that while his family would always come first, he would return to Manchester on Thursday.

It's often been felt that Mourinho has never rated him all that highly even prior to this episode, handing him just 18 league starts last season.

Jose Mourinho is confident that Pereira, a Portugal under-21 global, can become first choice at United in future but said during the tour of the US that he would need to get games under his belt to help his development. The 22-year-old has scored 24 goals Premier League since signing for the Mancs two seasons ago.

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes that Maurizio Sarri will succeed at Stamford Bridge following his arrival from Napoli.

'We make jokes. He sends me good advice, or amusing videos, some stuff like that.

The transfer window approaches its final days and a number of interesting rumors have been circulating as major clubs prepare for the 2018-2019 season.

Mourinho dodged that question, saying: "Anthony Martial is better for Karen [United's press officer] to answer if she wants to answer".

Throughout preseason, Mourinho has griped due to not having a full squad of players to work with and because the players he wanted to sign have not arrived.

"You imagine an Alexis Sanchez fresh?" I was going to say Chelsea because of the "new manager" effect, the team start to perform better especially the first couple of matches but I think Liverpool will finish above them because they've bought more talented players, so I'll stick to the same four as a year ago.
