Chong impresses Mourinho in Manchester United debut

Chong impresses Mourinho in Manchester United debut

Martial fired a shot just over the bar in the 13th minute following some neat work from Demetri Mitchell inside the penalty area before the French star nearly teed up Mata for the opener two minutes later - the Spaniard's low shot hitting the post.

Mourinho has been in the market for a new centre-back with agent Giuliano Bertolucci asking the club if they could be interested in the Brazil worldwide.

Both have contracts and United are under no pressure to sell.

'So it's about when Alexis lands and when he lands he has to play because he trained with us five days before we depart to LA and we left one fitness coach behind with him.

"The captain was Valencia last season [when Carrick did not play] and I think he's going to be the captain [this season]", Mourinho said. Sanchez back to his best would make United a different prospect next season.

However, the visa issue has since been resolved and Sanchez is likely to feature in United's next game - against San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara on Sunday. "He won't be ready for the start of season but ready i think for September".

Scott McTominay did so well last summer that he went on to play in key games against Liverpool, Chelsea and Sevilla.

MUTV is the only place to watch all of Manchester United's pre-season matches live, and hear first on new signings.

Chong has managed to bounce back from a cruciate ligament injury to challenge Anthony Martial for a spot in the Manchester United team on tour.

The Portuguese boss has added full-back Diego Dalot (From FC Porto), goalkeeper Lee Grant (Stoke City) and box to box midfielder Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk) to the roster at Old Trafford so far this summer. There are question marks at centre-back, left-back and up front, and Mourinho will have to decide what else he needs. He faces a race against time with the Premier League transfer window due to shut before the start of the season - nearly a month earlier than last summer.
