Leicester City v AFC Bournemouth- Premier League

United have signed Brazilian midfielder Fred and goalkeeper Lee Grant so far this summer, but it is understood that Mourinho wants two more signings from his board before the start of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Mourinho's playing style came in for added criticism last term, particularly in the higher profile matches in which United tended to adopt a conservative approach despite their attacking talents. Sorry but my family will always go before everything.

Over the last 27 years, the former world-class striker, alongside current president Uli Hoeness, turned Bayern into one of Europe's largest clubs. Kovacic has not obtained the minutes he would like at Real Madrid.

Real will likely demand a hefty fee in exchange for the Croatian midfield maestro, one that, as per Marca, Man United were prepared to pay.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly willing to sell the 28-year-old defender, who has spent four years at Old Trafford. "That would be my response to that", Champion responded when asked if Zidane could be the right replacement if Mourinho leaves the Red Devils at some point this term.

Man Utd boss Mourinho pulls back from late transfer demands
Mourinho - who having guided United to Europa League and League Cup success in his first season - delivered nothing last term. Jose Mourinho has requested that several Manchester United players bring a premature end to their summer holidays.

The fee mooted for the German global is a large €55m - but with the close of the transfer window just around the corner and an unhappy manager to please, this one could well go through.

Do you think United are in need of another defender?

Zidane has won almost everything there is in club football during his three-year spell with Real Madrid.

The German worldwide has been one of the best centre-backs in the world over the past few years and has won a whole host of honours including 6 Bundesliga titles, 4 domestic cups and the Champions League during his time at the Allianz Arena. The Frenchman was supposed to arrive earlier and rejoin the Premier League outfit for their pre-season tour but did not do so, much to the frustration of his manager.

United face Bayern Munich in their final warm-up game on Sunday in Germany (7.15pm).
