The club's inconsistent performances has led Mourinho to express his frustration on multiple occasions throughout the USA tour, including criticising individual players and Manchester United's lack of transfer activity.

The United boss said: "No".

"I'm confident I'll get one".

"I think in every pre-season it happens basically the same and probably with every club, which is the ager wants more". It is our nature and our way to always want more for your team.

The Sun cites one case of an unnamed player in a panic asking the TV channel he gave an interview to erase an answer he gave them.

United have been linked with defenders Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina as well as Chelsea star Willian. For example, we played against Liverpool and they had maybe 80 percent of their squad ready, Milan maybe 90 percent of their squad.

Mourinho had been banking on starting the Premier League season with a back four of Valencia, Shaw, Bailly and Smalling, but all are now injured or carrying knocks, throwing his preparations into disarray ahead of the home game against Leicester on August 10.

Luciano Vietto grabbed the opening goal for Atletico just before the break in a first half which Arsenal dominated. Mass substitutions in the last half-hour made for a disjointed finale before the penalty shoot-out.

Mourinho is at loggerheads with United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over potential new signings, his team have looked desperately poor in their first four pre-season friendlies, and latest reports claim the Red Devils' squad feel uncomfortable in his presence right now.

"The players that we have bought one is a goalkeeper cover, another one is a 19-year-old kid".

While United are not looking to actively replace him, club officials are in no doubt that Zidane would be top of the list of new managers if Mourinho did leave, according to the Sun.

Mourinho is still without a number of players, who reached the latter stages in Russian Federation, and made clear his preference that they cut their breaks early to aid preparations for the season opener against Leicester on August 10.

"I agree totally with the window closing at the same time the Premier League starts".

"First of all, I have to respect what my manager said, because he knows what he's talking about", said Herrera.

With Man City running away with the league last season and Liverpool strengthening considerably over the summer, challenging for the title will be hard, as will playing a style of football that will entertain the fans after 2017/18's dour displays.
