Injuries and holidays - the players set to miss United’s Premier League opener

Injuries and holidays - the players set to miss United’s Premier League opener

Asked about some of the names with whom United have been linked - including Leicester's England star Harry Maguire and Barcelona defender Yerry Mina - Mourinho replied: 'I would like to have two more players.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has played down suggestions that his club will look to sign Mario Balotelli in this summer's transfer window.

His current deal expires at the end of the upcoming season, though United have the option of a one-year extension clause.

"The majority of the players that played are not going to play - some of them are not even going to belong to the squad", he said. It is our nature and our way to always want more for your team.

"But I don't know how long he needs to stay out, but at the moment he is the captain, he's first choice", Darmian said.

"We basically have the same players. We're evaluating the best solution for him, but he won't go to Parma or Cagliari as neither of them have offered me the €18m I want".

MARTIAL MANCHESTER ENGLAND- AUGUST 19 Anthony Martial of Manchester United is substituted by Jose Mourinho Manager of Manchester United during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Southampton at Old Trafford

But while his media hysterics are now familiar, sources in the United camp have indicated that Mourinho is plotting the more controversial move of arranging a team visit to aquatic theme park SeaWorld at exactly the same time his men are supposed to be playing against Real Madrid in Miami.

"I'm not under any illusions about the task I have got in front of me this season and I'm not going to sit here and say I am going to play 30 games this season", he said. It gets later and later, the season seem to get earlier and earlier and it's really a challenge for everyone.

The talented Italian was restricted to just five starts in Premier League last season.

The report claims that due to the extended absence of World Cup victor Paul Pogba and the recent injury to Nemanja Matic, Pereira could be in line for his league debut in the first game of the season against Leicester on August 10.

Mourinho, who has become increasingly downbeat during the tour, cut a frustrated figure as he spoke about the club's relative inactivity in the transfer market.
