Confirmed: Manchester United line up to face Real Madrid, Fred starts

Although United finished their tour of the U.S. with an encouraging 2-1 victory over European champions Real Madrid, Mourinho was distracted by questions around Martial's continued absence.

Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera gave the Red Devils a win over the European champions in their final United States tour fixture at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, ahead of the upcoming 2018/2019 English Premiership season.

United were hammered 4-1 in their preseason friendly against Liverpool, with most of their key players still on summer holidays after participating at the 2018 World Cup.

United have struggled to impress in pre-season with a patchy squad that has been depleted through injuries and key players resting after the World Cup in Russian Federation. "We have just a few (senior) players here, lots of kids", Mourinho told his post-match press conference on Wednesday morning.

The Portuguese has never spent more than three seasons in any job in his managerial career to date.

"The boys tried everything, they gave everything, they know we have to try to fight for the best result but tactically it means nothing".

This intelligence has been backed up by satellite images that appear to show activity at a known uranium-enrichment facility. Nauert said that North Korean officials would be at some of the same meetings as State Department officials in the area.

United could bring Zidane to the club on a free after he walked out on Real Madrid having secured his third consecutive Champions League title.

Asked if Martial would be part of his squad for Sunday's game against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena - five days before the start of the Premier League season - he said: "I don't know".

"I didn't learn anything (from this tour)", said Mourinho. So, I think we have fantastic players, but of course, always the managers want to improve their teams, but it's not my business.

Man Utd: De Gea; Darmian, Bailly, Fosu-Mensah, Shaw; Herrera, Fred (Tuanzebe 68), McTominay (Mitchell 79); Mata (Garner 82), Alexis, A Pereira.

"It's also hard for us but we knew in advance before coming that it was going to be like this".

But the winger has answered that question himself: he will be back in Manchester tomorrow.
