The club's inconsistent performances has led Mourinho to express his frustration on multiple occasions throughout the US tour, including criticising individual players and Manchester United's lack of transfer activity.

The Red Devils have snapped-up third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant, young full-back Diogo Dalot and midfielder Fred but the Brazilian worldwide is the only one of the new recruits expected to be a first team regular this season so Mourinho is keen to further strengthen his ranks.

Transfers are arguably chief among the issues as United have so far only managed to bring in Brazil midfielder Fred, raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant.

The 22-year-old's last loan move was with Portuguese side Belenenses during the first half of Mourinho's opening season as Old Trafford, during which he made ten appearances and impressed with a handful of solid performances between the sticks.

The France global rushed home from Manchester United's pre-season tour of the States to be with his partner ahead of the birth of his first child.

United's squad will be strengthened when Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard, among others, return from their post-World Cup holidays but Mourinho is anxious to recruit further and presented Woodward with a list of five names "a few months ago".

In Toby Alderweireld, Jose Mourinho will get the kind of player he builds title-winning teams around: ready-made, arguably world-class and Premier League hardened defender who is at the peak of his powers now.

"We basically have the same players". Hopefully I'm ready to know them better. It's not going to be very different.

The Sun cites one case of an unnamed player in a panic asking the TV channel he gave an interview to erase an answer he gave them.

Mourinho had been banking on starting the Premier League season with a back four of Valencia, Shaw, Bailly and Smalling, but all are now injured or carrying knocks, throwing his preparations into disarray ahead of the home game against Leicester on August 10.

United fans were quick to raise their concern after watching the clip and slammed Mourinho's players for their lack of effort.

"I agree totally with the window closing at the same time the Premier League starts".
