"Finally, it's over. Finally, such a hard pre-season is over", Mourinho told manutd.com.

While Liverpool are being widely praised for getting their transfer business done early, United have been coming under fire from all angles recently as they flounder in the search for new players to close the gap on Man City.

Reports in Germany on Sunday claimed United have also expressed an interest in Bayern defender Jerome Boateng.

Sarri said he was confident that Brazil playmaker Willian would remain at the club but was less sure over the future of Courtois. Coach's Corner: If not for Ronald Koeman's untimely departure last October, Silva might still be the manager at Watford.

Rashford has previously worn the number 19 at United, since the 2016/17 season when he became a regular member of the Red Devils' first team having been number 39 in his debut campaign.

Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof have all struggled to prove themselves at Old Trafford with regular mistakes pushing Mourinho to look for another centre-back.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the temporary wearer of the number 10 shirt at Manchester United after Wayne Rooney left a year ago; but it was revealed this afternoon who the new occupant of the shirt will be.

"He wanted it. He always wanted it", said Mourinho.
