Manchester United To Offer Anthony Martial In Return For Defender

And now according to reports, Bayern Munich has told Manchester United that they can complete the signing of Jerome Boateng from Allianz Arena to Old Trafford.

United's executive vice-chairman also made a point of going into the dressing room at the Hard Rock Stadium to shake hands with all of the players, and did the same on the flight back to Manchester.

Manchester United are chasing a center-back this season, and have reportedly been in talks with Barcelona star Yerry Mina, but Boateng could be their next target as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the new Premier League season. After helping Croatia reach the World Cup final and with doubts over Martial's future at United, Perisic - who is happy in Milan - could be the player to make Mourinho smile again.

Mourinho, who has been linked with moves for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire before Thursday's transfer window, selected Alexis Sanchez as captain in Bavaria.

Jose Mourinho's side were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich in Bavaria on Sunday night, with Javi Martinez's header the difference between the two sides.

One, in the 37th minute, sailed close to the half way line and that was about as interesting as the first half got of a forgettable pre-season friendly.

The United manager has overseen a miserable off-season and, speaking after the game on Sunday, he welcomed the return of the Premier League.

"The other clubs that compete with us are really strong and have already fantastic squads".

"There was a moment where I was looking into the area and there was Axel at centre-back to the left, Demetri at left-wing-back, Garner in midfield on the left and Chong".

The newspaper says both players are valued at around £75m and Mourinho is quietly confident a deal can be done as both Willian and Martial are keen for a fresh challenge this summer.
