Even before being held by Club America and San Jose Earthquakes, Mourinho was aware that a further cash injection would be required if United are to seriously challenge for silverware this coming season.

United have considered deals for Toby Alderweireld, Leonardo Bonucci and Marquinhos, while Harry Maguire has emerged as a potential target. That's the big question on every fans' lips as they enter the new season.

Mourinho knows it is impossible to keep Martial, given the 22-year-old's determination to leave this summer, and has impressed this upon United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Betway now has odds of 11/10 that Maguire will be moving to Old Trafford, having previously been 10/1 a few days ago.
