'Family Comes First': Anthony Martial Defends His Priorities After Jose Mourinho Comments

And when asked if he knew when Martial would rejoin the squad, Mourinho said: "I don't know". The 22-year-old is keen to quit Old Trafford after spending much of last season on the bench, but United are extremely reluctant to sell to another English club, even though there is interest from both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. "I am confident I will get one [new player], but I think two I am not going to get - which is not a drama", the manager told beIN Sports.

Martial confirms he is returning to Man United training
So, I think we have fantastic players, but of course, always the managers want to improve their teams, but it's not my business. But the winger has answered that question himself: he will be back in Manchester tomorrow.

Modric would join Radja Nainggolan, Stefan De Virj, and Lautaro Martinez as a big name signing for the Milan side this Summer.

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure during Manchester United's recent games in North America and some of his comments suggest he is unhappy with the club's lack of transfer activity during the summer.

Goalkeeper Lee Grant, however, has dismissed the notion that Mourinho is unhappy with the squad.

"His attitude and demeanour around the place is great and that is helpful for us especially when we are under-manned and we are working our hardest". This, it's claimed, may help persuade him to take on a new challenge in his career having won four Champions League crowns in the last five seasons with Real.
