Bayern rule out Boateng switch for Martial

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

German global Boateng, 29, has been strongly linked with PSG during this window after reports surfaced that Bayern was willing to listen to offers for the centre back.

Chelsea are also reported to be eager to bring Martial to Stamford Bridge is a deal that would see Willian move to United, but the Manchester club are still reluctant to sell a player who that may believe has a brighter future in their ranks than Mourinho.

United slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in their final pre-season game, with Mourinho's men failing to register a shot on target in 90 minutes.

There are major question marks over Martial's future at Old Trafford after speculation that the French worldwide wants to leave the club and boss Jose Mourinho's criticism that the 22-year-old did not return to training quickly enough following the birth of his second child. "We were playing against their best team, it was their complete squad apart from (Corentin) Tolisso". "The players were, once more, brilliant, they could not have done better than what they did", added Mourinho to MUTV.

However, with speculation surrounding Anthony Martial's immediate future, and several others sitting out the club's entire pre-season, it is unclear whether United will be in a much stronger position when they open their domestic campaign against Leicester.

The Red Devils are still looking to bring in a centre-back to pair up with Eric Bailly for the upcoming season.

"It was fantastic, absolutely fantastic".

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri then said he was confident Willian would stay but he remains a player on Mourinho's wish list. The shirt, however, is one of those special ones which carries a privilege at Old Trafford, and when United gave Wayne Rooney the shirt in 2007, it was worthy of a special announcement from the club with Denis Law being pictured in a photoshoot "gifting" the shirt to Rooney.
