How to watch Manchester United vs. Real Madrid, ICC

Anthony Martial has issued a statement after his premature departure from Manchester United's pre-season tour angered manager José Mourinho.

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.

"Matic arrived from the World Cup, holiday, direct to surgery because something happened in the World Cup", Mourinho revealed. "My professional players were fantastic all pre-season because they know we play against good teams, against good opponents".

Mourinho also says the new Premier League season should start a week later - in line with the rest of Europe. "I thought he played a good game".

Imposing Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire and Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld have been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford, as have a variety of other defenders.

José Mourinho retains the full backing of Manchester United's board, with the hierarchy understanding the manager's frustrations regarding signings and the number of players missing from the USA tour.

In addition to the fatalities, at least 162 people were injured, according to Indonesia's National Disaster Management Agency. The quake created panic on the holiday island and sent locals and tourists running outside their homes and hotels.

"More or less I know (my best team)", the United boss told beIN SPORTS.

"But managing isn't just about bringing out the chequebook, it's being able to work with the players at your disposal and making sure the squad gels".

"We go to Munich in a few days and we start the Premier League in nine days".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is confident that the club will sign at least one more player before the Premier League's transfer window closes on August 9.

But Mourinho, who has bemoaned the lack of established players he has on United's U.S. tour, says that is too soon after the World Cup and the start should be a week later.
