Jose Mourinho Praises Manchester United Youngsters Despite Bayern Defeat

Having rounded off their tour of the U.S. with a 2-1 victory over Real Madrid last week, United played their final preseason game against Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena on Sunday evening.

"I know that he tries his best for me".

The 20-time English champions are also being linked with FC Barcelona and Colombia defender Yerry Mina.

German newspaper Bild has reported that Jérôme Boateng could be the subject of an offer from Manchester United.

Willian's work rate makes him a favourite of Mourinho's.

The positive aspect for United is that they have plenty of strength in depth, with the likes of Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot, Andrea Pereira, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial all among those who could be left fighting for attention in Mourinho's squad.

"He always wanted it", Mourinho said.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng has moved up the list of targets as United look to secure a centre-back before Thursday's cut-off.

He was injured during the World Cup and has been working his way back to full fitness in games against Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich this summer.

The Foxes are thought to be asking for a transfer fee in excess of £65m for the 25-year-old former Hull defender.

Take two! The Red Devils are back in for Ivan Perisic.

It has been a frustrating summer for the Manchester United boss, winning just one of their six pre-season games, only bringing in one major signing, and having being missing a number of first-team players for their pre-season preparations.

United have reportedly held talks over Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina in recent weeks but Boateng has also been touted as a prime target by the media and it seems the Manchester giants have been given the chance to sign the 2014 World Cup victor.
