Sorry but my family will always come first.

Yesterday, asked after a win over Real Madrid when Martial would return, Mourinho responded: "I don't know".

Anthony Martial has explained he will be back in Manchester on Thursday and makes no apology for putting his family first.

Mourinho has had a limited squad to work with as many of his players are either injured, returning from the world cup, or attending the birth of his child, as is the case of French winger Anthony Martial.

After their tie against Mourinho's former employers, United travel back home and take on Bayern Munich in the final pre-season fixture on the weekend. "We go with everything we have to the Premier League".

"Plus we have Rashford, Jones and Lukaku because they gave to the group and to the team three days of their holidays, so they're coming back three days early to try and be available for the team".

Mourinho and Martial having words.

Manchester United have made a €60 million (£53.5 million) offer for Real Madrid playmaker Mateo Kovacic, but the player is not interested in a move to Old Trafford, according to Marca.

The Red Devils have landed £50m midfield Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and spent £20m on young full-back Diogo Dalot and veteran goalkeeper Lee Grant.

"You imagine an Alexis Sanchez fresh?"

'We have a fantastic spirit in the majority of the players, I repeat, in the majority of the players.

"I am confident I will get one, but I think two I am not going to get - which is not a drama", he said.
