Mourinho hoping for 2 more signings

Luke Shaw Jose Mourinho Manchester United

Anthony Martial has been allowed to leave Manchester United's pre-season tour of the U.S. so he can attend the birth of his second child.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly set his sights on signing Toni Kroos from Real Madrid after accepting that Gareth Bale won't be leaving the European champions.

The 32-year-old former England global, who can operate as a forward or as an an attacking midfielder, has spoken highly of the 22-year-old France worldwide.

Mourinho has indicated he wants the teenager to train with the United first team this season rather than go out on loan, although there is bound to be plenty of interest in him if he changes his mind.

"If Guardiola was the manager of Manchester United, he would hate what he was seeing - and it would be different".

War of words emanates from Tehran after Pompeo speech to Iranian Americans
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had earlier accused senior Iranian leaders of resembling a "mafia more than a government". Trump said in May that he was withdrawing from the agreement signed by the Barack Obama administration.

In comparison to Rojo, Maguire did not miss a single Premier League game for Leicester City, following his £17 million move from Hull City and had an outstanding summer in Russian Federation, emerging as one of England's best players in football's biggest competition.

"I think players in the World Cup, they really feel that extra commitment with a country, with the people, that extra responsibility that makes them - by the emotional point of view - to be sometimes even overcommitted".

"We bought a fantastic player (Diego Dalot)".

"I think basically it's down to too much, too early and too much dough sitting in the bank".

As per reports from the Mirror, Manchester United could be forced into selling Argentine defender Marcos Rojo, in order to to sign key summer transfer target Harry Maguire.

Trump targets Obama-era critics' security clearances
And if he chooses to do it for political reasons, I think that's a awful precedent, and it's a very sad commentary. A decision to strip a former official of a security clearance would prove a striking use of presidential power.

The 25-year-old's stock rose considerably following impressive performances for England at the World Cup.

Mourinho's job, of course, is to get the best out of his players.

"If you look to the players that Chelsea and Liverpool have in the pre-season, especially these two teams, also Arsenal, you see the difference of the situation", he said.

"We think a player like Fred, Andreas Pereira, are more technical, more quality of passing, playing in short spaces, maybe connect with the attacking players, we thought that he could be an important player for us".
