This has lead Anthony Martial to believe that this ardent lack of communication between both him and the Old Trafford side, has been a lack of recognition for the amount of progress the 22-year-old has made this season.
Manchester United are now in full pre-season swing, with their tour of the United States of America bringing in record numbers as the juggernaut marches on before the 2018/19 season begins.
Martial, who joined United in 2015, had an impactful debut season in which he notched up 11 goals in 31 Premier League games he played under former manager Louis Van Gaal.
He's missing Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Maraoune Fellaini, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Ashley Young, Marcus Rashford and Victor Lindelof after their deep runs at the World Cup this summer, plus David De Gea, Marcos Rojo and new signing Fred.
WhatsApp Group Video, Voice Calling Feature Rolled Out for Android, iOS Users
Group voice and video calling is not a new feature, as other apps such as Google Hangouts have supported it for a long time. With the latest update, both Android and iOS users can now hold audio and video conversations with up to four people.
Despite his confident prediction, it is unlikely Mourinho will risk the Ecuadorian in the International Champions Cup clash unless his calf injury clears up. But, Mourinho pointed out that his playing XI comprises of players from separate age group teams of the club and is nowhere near a 'team.' He went onto add that this was like 'one more training session'. Match fitness is a different thing but we knew he could be good and it was a good physical effort for him - a bit more than an hour, which was good.
"However I can tell you that without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would already have asked to leave Manchester United".
Mourinho poured cold water on speculation that Martial will decide his future after his agent said on Sunday that the French forward wanted to leave with Chelsea and Bayern Munich touted as possible destinations.
"If one of them can not play, we have three or four more so we have lots of options". I think in the first half we were the best team and had the best chances.
"Anthony looks very sharp and he is very, very focused to smash it this season."
