José Mourinho’s preparations for Manchester United’s new season have been further disrupted by Anthony Martial flying home from the U.S. tour to attend the birth of his child.
Martial flew back to Manchester from Los Angeles and will not be rejoining United’s tour, which still has three fixtures left to fulfil, including tomorrow’s game against AC Milan in LA.
United could view the 24-year-old as a potential replacement for Anthony Martial as the French global continues to be linked with a move after struggling to establish himself under Mourinho.
The Premier League will not be allowing clubs to bring in players after August 9th and Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are two clubs who are desperate for some new faces.
Pogba has largely struggled for consistency since re-joining United from Juventus in the summer of 2016, but the midfielder did contribute six goals and 12 assists in 37 appearances for his English club last term.
United have two U.S. tour games left, against Liverpool in MI and Real Madrid in Miami, with a final warm-up game away to Bayern Munich before the new season gets under way at home to Leicester a fortnight tomorrow.
Yes, Antonio Valencia has performed impressively during his time at right-back, but he is getting older and new signing Dalot is just 19 years old.

Mourinho has plenty of talent at his disposal though, with a cluster of youngsters having the opportunity to make an impression ahead of the oncoming season too.
“One thing is what I would like”, he told ESPN FC. “I wish you all the best”.
“They will win a lot of games, don’t get me wrong”, Scholes told BeIN Sports.
In the previous months that has been Toby Alderweireld and then, after a good World Cup with England, Harry Maguire popped up.
European clubs including Chelsea, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are linked with Martial but when asked on the Frenchman’s future, Mourinho said that life did not always give people what they wanted.
