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

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.

"Or they already have fantastic squads like Chelsea, Spurs or Manchester City".

Is this the latest sign of the former Chelsea boss once again imploding during his third season at a club, or does he have a point?

Manager Jose Mourinho was thrilled with his youthful Manchester United team despite a 1-0 friendly defeat at Bayern Munich on Sunday night.

World Cup-winning midfielder Paul Pogba, Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku and England forward Jesse Lingard were among a number of players missing from United's pre-season fixtures.

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.

But Mourinho's pre-match comments suggest he is still looking for reinforcements. "The players were, once more, brilliant, they could not have done better than what they did", added Mourinho to MUTV.

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.

"He was in the shadow, waiting for the opportunity and now the shirt is empty. We were playing against their best team, it was their complete squad apart from (Corentin) Tolisso".
