Manchester Utd face battle for early points, says Mourinho

Pogba gave a series of commanding performances in midfield and scored in the final

The 25-year-old had a hard season at United last season, with Mourinho dropping him at several points' through-out last campaign.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is willing to let Darmian depart Old Trafford this summer and the Italy global has been linked with several clubs.

"When we welcome players back from the World Cup, I hope we can give them the opportunity to continue advancing their ambitions and perform in the Premier League".

Mourinho then listed out a couple of examples, probably in anger, as he stated that he wanted to play all the pre-season matches in Los Angeles. I would say third match, playing against a team [Tottenham] in a similar situation as us, so after three weeks it is OK.

Ex-United midfielder Paul Scholes believes his former side face a tough task to win their 21st top-flight crown and that Mourinho is not in the right frame of mind.

But is this a matter for Pogba to deal with, or should Man United boss Jose Mourinho step in and help the player grow?

Sportsmail understands the Red Devils are looking into the possibility of bringing the Croatian to Old Trafford following an impressive World Cup campaign.

Martial found his game time limited under Jose Mourinho last season, who condemned him to the bench following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.

"The first match of the season is against Leicester and the second one is against Brighton", Mourinho said.

Reflecting on his displays in Russian Federation he continued: "it is the flawless setting for a player like him to give his best".

"If our players are interesting a lot of clubs it is because we are recruiting well and doing good work".

"If you look to the players that Chelsea and Liverpool have in the pre-season, especially these two teams, also Arsenal, you see the difference of the situation", he said.
