José Mourinho: we need Alexis Sánchez on U.S. tour

José Mourinho: we need Alexis Sánchez on U.S. tour

Sanchez started his own training sessions a week before the club requested those not participating in the World Cup to return for pre-season and the Chilean was in good shape after enjoying a rare summer off.

When asked if he expected Sanchez to make it over the Atlantic in time for a pre-season campaign that includes fixtures against Milan, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, Mourinho replied, "I don't know can at least join us later".

"[Nemanja] Matic, [David] De Gea and Fred will come next week, but I don't have all my players", he added. The broadcasters were not nice to us with the Friday match [against Leicester City on 10 August], which complicates more things.

Topflight Premier League side Manchester United commenced their pre-season training in America without a complete squad as Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho put his players to work.

United are trying their best to sort things out with the U.S. government, but this is taking longer than expected.

United have spent £75million on Brazil midfielder Fred, Portugal Under-21 defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant, as well as tying Marouane Fellaini to a new contract.

Jose Mourinho looks on as Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata get into their drills.

Mourinho was noncommittal regarding any further signings. 'I'm not going to lie to you.

It could well mean Lukaku will be given an extended break, after Belgium went all the way to the World Cup semi-finals before losing to France and eventually beating England in the third-place playoff. It's good for him to play but then he will go on loan.

"I think that's the point about his performance level and his contribution to a winning team".

Shaw said: "It's annoying for me to say I need to prove myself".

"I don't think I would still be involved right now if the manager didn't believe in me".

But now The Sun report that Manchester United are willing to spend £92million on signing Perisic and Rebic.

"It's time for me to show him over the next four weeks what I can do and why I deserve to be in this team".
