Anthony Martial leaves Manchester United tour for birth of second child

Fred joined Manchester United in June from Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth around £52million.

Martial's future at United is now in doubt with the player's agent revealing his wishes to leave due to a lack of playing time under Mourinho.

United would reportedly ask for €67 million (R1 billion) for the forward, who president Florentino Perez is keen to lure to Spain to bolster his club's attack following Cristiano Ronaldo's exit.

Despite returning to Old Trafford as a World Cup victor, Paul Pogba "needs to use his brain a little bit more to become a top footballer", insists Paul Scholes.

So I don't think I'd sign a new deal right now. "You don't know what can happen in the future, but I'm dreaming of staying here". I don't want it offered because maybe in the next year or so I'm a free agent, so maybe they might look to tie me down. "But I want to sign a contract because I deserve it and the club want me to sign one".

The report also adds that Maguire is on holiday after his exploits in the World Cup and is hopeful of a move to the Red Devils before the start of the season.

Darmian has been linked with moves to Juventus and Inter Milan but Mourinho revealed the club were yet to receive an acceptable offer.

Man City and Tottenham, while quiet themselves this summer, have laid so much groundwork over the past couple of years that they already boast excellent squads, ones that don't need major surgery this year to maintain what they have already accomplished.

"I wanted to get in the best shape for myself and that wasn't my best shape". I'm not just here to pick up my salary and do nothing. "Right now, the shirt's mine and I intend to keep it".

Mark Hughes has supposedly been "boosted" by the news that Manolo Gabbiadini will stick with Southampton rather than joining Napoli to play Champions League football. Of course this season I want to do it.

And Mourinho believes the Brazil global can be an important player this season.

"When I look to Leicester, if I am not wrong, only [Harry] Maguire and [Jamie] Vardy were in the World Cup, the final phase, because [Kasper] Schmiechel was, but back sooner", he said.

Shaw has endured a tough time since moving to Old Trafford from Southampton at 18.

Martial used to play as a striker at Monaco before Louis van Gaal and Mourinho forced him out on the wings.

Sir Alex Ferguson would always protect his players from criticism and then privately criticise him while Jose has chosen to do the opposite.

"That was one of the texts he sent me in the off-season". I got the incredible commitment of the people that are involved in the process of preparing a good pre-season.

"That's why it pushes me on more".

The relationship between player and manager has appeared strained at times during the previous two seasons, with Shaw often being criticised by Mourinho. It's awful at times because people only see those things he says [in public].
