Fred could be an important player for us, but let's wait - Mourinho

Anthony Martial has left Manchester United's tour of the United States to attend the birth of his son.

Valencia has returned to Carrington with a suspected torn calf suffered during the draw with San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara on Sunday.

The Brazilian playmaker joined the Red Devils from Shakhtar Donetsk last month for a fee reported to be in excess of £50million, but is yet to feature for United in pre-season after World Cup duty with the Selecao. Hopefully I can get a full pre-season, which I've not had in many years, and I feel fresh and ready to go now'.

Looking ahead, United are considering travelling east for their pre-season tour next summer in a move that may concern Mourinho, whose preference is to use the U.S. west coast to prepare for a new campaign.

It was initially thought the Frenchman had been granted leave by manager Jose Mourinho but United were unable to confirm that was the case on Wednesday.

Sky Sports News understands Martial has told Mourinho he wants to leave the club, with Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund among the clubs interested in signing him. The club's proposed derby with Manchester City, the first overseas staging of the fixture, was called off because of concerns regarding the pitch at Beijing's National Stadium.

Another witness said seven or eight police vehicles were at the scene and the road next to the large complex has been closed off. However, the details of the incident were not immediately clear as witness reports conflicted.

The 25-year-old also helped France win the 2018 World Cup this summer - scoring in the final against Croatia.

Manchester United have told the Spurs-linked attacker that he can leave for £60 million this summer, according to The Daily Express, which claims that a move overseas is the "most likeliest option".

"He doesn't look happy to me".

"This club is always linked to centre-backs, whether it's the club or agents or whoever, because the best [want to] come here".

"And I don't think that helps him at United because I'd be amazed if the same team has been named twice on the run, the same formation".
