Manchester United's Jose Mourinho wants two more new signings

Manchester United's Jose Mourinho wants two more new signings

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford will be watching on from afar though as they enjoy breaks following their World Cup exploits.

United midfielder Pogba excelled as France triumphed in Russian Federation this summer, the 25-year-old even capping a fine series of performances with a memorable goal against Croatia in the final.

At the end of last season, Carrick called time on a 19-year senior career in which he represented West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and United, playing a career total of 706 games.

Interestingly, after the lackluster 0-0 score line against San Jose Earthquakes, Martial was asked if he was staying put at Old Trafford but he just laughed it off in response. Nemanja Matic is struggling for match fitness, too, after joining the squad late because of his own post-World Cup break.

Pjanic made 28 starts in Serie A last season for Juventus, scoring 5 goals and contributing 8 assists in their title-winning season. The manager has been in noticeably sombre spirits since United arrived in the U.S. 10 days ago.

Mourinho also added that he would have liked to play against Leicester on Sunday and not on Friday, before adding "you don't get always in life what you want".

Manchester United face AC Milan at 4.05am (BST) on Thursday morning, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Martial joined United three years ago, and was a regular under then manager Louis van Gaal.

Rebic would offer United pace and power out wide to go along with work rate which would suit the Mourinho mould down to a tee, but so far his club career has flattered to deceive slightly.

Chris Smalling is determined to fight for his Manchester United future even if Jose Mourinho buys another centre-back in the summer window.

Argentina defender Rojo, who returned from holiday on Wednesday, has attracted strong interest from a Premier League rival, but is reluctant to leave after signing a new contract in March.

In the previous months that has been Toby Alderweireld and then, after a good World Cup with England, Harry Maguire popped up.

"But no, I'm happy and when I'm fit I play, so I just want to carry on from last season and right now the shirt's mine and I intend to keep it".
