Manchester United set to offer Anthony Martial for Willian

Family Will Always Come First- Martial Defends Man Utd Absence

Family Will Always Come First- Martial Defends Man Utd Absence

Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign a centre-back before Thursday's transfer deadline and with potential deals for Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld not coming off, United have turned their attention to the Germany global.

Tottenham are interested, while United would like to take Toby Alderweireld from them, but a spanner has been thrown in the works as Sport Bild report that United would be willing to sell Martial to Bayern Munich in exchange for Jerome Boateng.

Manchester United appear to have named Marcus Rashford as the club's new number 10 ahead of the upcoming season.

Jose is on a collision course with Manchester United chief Ed Woodward just five days before the start of the new Premier League season. "If we do not make our team better it will be a hard season for us".

Mourinho also hailed the performances of his young players, who have been called upon in the absence of World Cup stars such as Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard. The 29-year-old is regularly linked during the close-season and it has been no different this time around after he reported late for Chelsea's pre-season preparations.

It was in contrast to Anthony Martial, who, according to ESPN FC sources, was left behind in Manchester to do double training sessions after leaving the tour of the United States to attend to the birth of his son.

The Brazilian worldwide is also seeking a move before Thursday's deadline and Willian has been constantly linked with Man Utd ever since Mourinho took charge two years ago and it seems a reunion could finally be on the cards.

Asked why he needed to strengthen, the manager added: "The other clubs that compete..."

"He wanted it. He always wanted it", said Mourinho. He did, however, say he wants to remain at Chelsea following Sunday's 2-0 Community Shield defeat against Manchester City.

"The players were, once again, brilliant".
