Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has continued the very downbeat narrative that has dominated his sides pre-season tour of America, by claiming that his current squad are 'not a team'. Despite this, Pogba failed to find the top-draw form he's capable of last season for Manchester United.

'One thing is what I would like.

That response came after the Portuguese offered a downbeat assessment of United's pre-season tour of the U.S. - they face Milan here on Thursday - due to a high number of his frontline players missing due to post-World Cup breaks.

Sky Sports News understands Martial has told United manager Jose Mourinho that he wants to leave the club, with Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund keen to sign him.

Pogba, the £89 million midfielder, was one of France's star performers in their recent World Cup triumph.

"Of course, I am not happy".

"I don't think that helps him at United because I'll be amazed if the same team has been named twice in a row and the same formation, there doesn't seem to be a set way of where it's going and that could possibly work against him". So against Leicester and Brighton the situation is not wonderful for us.

Asked how many new players he would like to bring in, Mourinho said: 'I would get two more players'.

The England global impressed at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, helping Gareth Southgate's side reach a first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

The Ecuador worldwide was forced off with a calf injury during the 0-0 draw with San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara on Sunday and Mourinho does not think the 32-year-old will be able to feature against AC Milan, Liverpool or Real Madrid in the remaining tour games.

Martial has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, especially after his agent spoke out that the French attacker wants to play his football elsewhere.
