England internationals Chris Smalling and Phil Jones remain incumbent at the club, despite the inconsistencies in their displays, while Mourinho's signings Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof are expected to bounce back from what was a disappointing 2017-18 season for the pair.

"But one thing is what I would like, another thing is what is going to happen".

United have not had the best of starts to pre-season after drawing their first two matches on their tour of the U.S., although most of the team's star players, such as Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, are still on holiday.

The Independent are reporting that Jose Mourinho is actively looking for alternatives for Willian, who had been the #1 target for The Red Devils this summer. "As a football person, if you're a coach and you seem your team playing - he may be happy". Where he's with his team on the training camp, completely isolated from the external world, where they focus just on football, where the dimensions of the game can only motivate. "You are in the group phase, you go to the last 16, to the quarterfinals, to the semifinals, to the finals", he added. This feeds the concentration of a player.

United could view the 24-year-old as a potential replacement for Anthony Martial as the French worldwide continues to be linked with a move after struggling to establish himself under Mourinho.

There is plenty of Manchester United and Arsenal gossip doing the rounds in the papers with the English giants linked with a whole host of star names.

Ex-United midfielder Paul Scholes believes his former side face a tough task to win their 21st top-flight crown and that Mourinho is not in the right frame of mind.

"So they play for the team, and only for the team, and the team is the most important thing, and they do everything to try to succeed".

"I don't think that helps him at United because I'll be amazed if the same team has been named twice in a row and the same formation, there doesn't seem to be a set way of where it's going and that could possibly work against him".
