Manchester United close in on German defender

  • Javi Martinez grabbed the only goal as Bayern edged Man United in a pre-season friendlyMore

That's because, a report from German publication SportBild revealed after the game that United had made huge strides in their chase for Jerome Boateng on the day of the friendly.

Sunday Times reporter Castles believes Mourinho is keen to add two more players to his squad in the current transfer window.

Jose Mourinho's hopes of bringing in his two main targets this summer were dealt a blow as one of them signalled his intention to remain with his club. "And if we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us". After helping Croatia reach the World Cup final and with doubts over Martial's future at United, Perisic - who is happy in Milan - could be the player to make Mourinho smile again.

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

You wouldn't have known looking at the two teams and the first 45 minutes were played nearly entirely in United's half.

China plans $60 billion tariffs on US goods in trade blitz
Mr Trump is aiming to reduce his country's $375.6 billion goods trade deficit - the gap between imports and exports - with China. An all-out trade war could overshadow Trump's otherwise solid economic record of low unemployment and stimulus-fuelled growth.

It was in contrast to Anthony Martial, who, according to ESPN FC sources, was left behind in Manchester to do double training sessions after leaving the tour of the United States to attend to the birth of his son.

The deadlock was eventually broken after 59 minutes as Javi Martinez rose above his marker to head from a corner to put Bayern ahead. He did, however, say he wants to remain at Chelsea following Sunday's 2-0 Community Shield defeat against Manchester City.

"He is more than capable, one of the best coaches in the world but have they got it right? No".

'There was a moment I was looking to the area and there was Axel (Tuanzebe) at centre-back to left, Demetri (Mitchell) at left wing-back, (James) Garner in midfield on the left and (Tahith) Chong.

Chelsea are interested and could offer Willian, 29, as bait - a deal that would appeal to Mourinho even if it meant Martial signing for another Premier League club.
