Friendly Report: Bayern Munich v Manchester United 05 August 2018

Man Utd transfer news Anthony Martial

Man Utd transfer news Anthony Martial struggled for game time at United last season

Boateng endured a horrendous World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Sources have told ESPN FC United are involved in talks for Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld and Jerome Boateng and Mourinho is hopeful he will get one before the start of the season.

Bayern are prepared to accept around £45million for former Manchester City defender Boateng, who turns 30 next month, but United want to drive the price lower.

"In the week, we have to organise the week in a way so we can be fresh for Friday because, on Friday, the Premier League starts. We can not lose also a very good player for the team".

UNDER-23S HELD BY EVERTON IN FRIENDLYOur Reserves were in pre-season friendly action on Saturday afternoon at The Cliff and played out a goalless draw with David Unsworth's Everton side.

German newspaper Bild has reported that Jérôme Boateng could be the subject of an offer from Manchester United. "Finally, such a hard pre-season is over".

The 29-year-old played against United in Bayern's 1-0 friendly victory at the Allianz Arena last night. Chelsea wouldn't want to do it either after what happened with Nemanja Matic.

While his teammates were in Germany, Anthony Martial was in Manchester.

However, it won't come as a surprise to anyone if he joins Manchester United as he is looking forward to trying a new challenge and there aren't any names bigger than the Red Devils as of now. "He always wanted it", Mourinho said of Rashford's switch from 19 to 10.

Sarri already knew that he could be about to lose some of his best players - Eden Hazard, Willian and Thibaut Courtois - who have all been linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge this summer. A swap deal looks like the ideal solution on paper but it doesn't seem very practical at the moment with the transfer window closing within 3 days.
