Anthony Martial hits out at Jose Mourinho over USA tour row

MIAMI FL- JULY 28 Bernardo Silva #20 celebrates after scoring a goal against Bayern Munich in the first half of the International Champions Cup at Hard Rock Stadium City have now finished their International Champions Cup campaign

The Portuguese's relationship with striker Anthony Martial appears to have broken down completely after the Frenchman left the tour early to attend the birth of his son in Paris, only to then fail to return. Martial ignored Mourinho's plea to return to the USA to help his depleted squad, and has made it clear that he wants to leave United.

Mourinho freely admitted he wants another two new signings in a bid to launch an improved Premier League title challenge by the 9 August deadline, but attempted to downplay the frustrations of only getting one. His comments on his youth players have not won over any fans who have been critical of him during pre-season and he seems to be growing unhappier as the weeks roll on. "He is an honest man, always ready to give everything for the team".

As Mourinho expects the board to sign only one more player, he does not expect United's playing XI to be much different than last season.

The Red Devils can end their stateside tour on a high when they play European champions Real Madrid on Wednesday morning (0530 IST), but it's highly unlikely Los Blancos will lose to a team that are missing most of their starting XI.

Insisting there was no sidelining, Raab said later there was no tension and that he will attend all meetings with May. Britain's Brexit Secretary says he's confident a workable solution can be found for the Irish border.

He said, "My professional players were unbelievable all pre-season because they know we play against good teams, against good opponents".

"The players that we have bought one is a goalkeeper cover, another one is a 19-year-old kid". Now we have Real Madrid and after that we have Bayern Munich and that is our start.

"I agree totally with the window closing at the same time as the Premier League starts".

Mourinho also embarked upon United's five-game trip to the States without 13 players due to post-World Cup breaks and stated they could be "in trouble" at the start of the season due to this and a number of injuries.
