How will Manchester United line up in 2018-19?

Maguire going nowhere Puel

World Cup-winning midfielder Paul Pogba, Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku and England forward Jesse Lingard were among a number of players missing from United's pre-season fixtures.

Manchester United fans have reacted negatively to the news that emerged of the club's interest in signing Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng.

United travelled to Munich to take on the German champions in what will be Mourinho's final game before Friday's Premier League opener against Leicester City.

Mourinho, who has been linked with moves for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire before Thursday's transfer window, selected Alexis Sanchez as captain in Bavaria.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season.

"'If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us", Mourinho said about the club's transfer business, quoted by the Daily Mail. He has spent preseason learning to play as a No.6 - helped by new coach Michael Carrick - and with Nemanja Matic sidelined with an abdominal injury there should be a chance for him to start the season as first-choice.

"Finally, it's over. Finally, such a hard pre-season is over", Mourinho told manutd.com.

They write: "Anthony Martial's future is also uncertain after he also failed to make the trip to Germany".

But Martial returned for Manchester United's pre-season games only to leave for the birth of his child.

Who Mourinho deploys on the right of attack might well decide just how close they go to overhauling City this season.

Regardless of the difference between the squad he wanted and the squad he has, Mourinho will be the man to carry the can if United don't deliver this season. We know the importance of this player.

Where will Martial be plying his trade once the window slams shut?
