The same article states that Manchester United could yet suffer more frustration in the transfer window, with Bayern unwilling to sell Boateng unless a replacement is identified.

'Jerome has played a really good match today when he came in.

Manchester United are in talks with Bayern Munich to sign Jerome Boateng in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The manager was speaking to MUTV (h/t Daily Star) before the 1-0 friendly against Bayern Munich where he even listed out how our rivals have brought in quality players this season. Mourinho has previously stated he rates the former Shakhtar Donetsk man as a player but conceded it would be hard to sign him this season.

"My CEO knows what I want for quite a long time, I know he tries to do the best for me and I still have a few days to wait to see what happens". "Or they already have fantastic squads like Chelsea, Spurs or Manchester City".


Willian's comments may not end speculation that he could seal a move to United by Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline, even though new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is confident of hanging on to one of his key players. United have been linked with the likes of Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld in recent weeks but are yet to add to the arrivals of Fred, Diogo Dalot and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Willian and Mourinho won a pair of Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge and the Brazil global has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford. My head is here at the Chelsea, but we never know about tomorrow.

Martial has made it clear to Mourinho and United's board that he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Mourinho has seemed unhappy in pre-season and expressed his frustration at the club's lack of new signings.
