"The club, manager, and team always receive a great welcome when visiting America, with our millions of U.S. fans always keen to get closer to Manchester United". But the trio are just to provide backup options to the squad.

"If Manchester United, the most powerful club in the world, can't reach an agreement after eight months of negotiations, it means they don't really consider him to be an important player".

The Manchester United defender showed off how ripped he is two weeks ago, putting any doubts over his physical condition to bed.

Manchester United kick off the 2018-19 season when they face Leicester City on August 10, which United boss Mourinho says does not allow sufficient time for players featuring at the World Cup in Russian Federation to rest and then recover their fitness.

Mourinho may go for Ivan Perisic, who blossomed for Croatia as they made the World Cup final. They are said to be preparing a £92 million joint bid to sign them this summer.

Rebic and Perisic were part of the returning party that received a heroes welcome in Croatia on Monday. The Portuguese boss had taken the extra responsibility of being a pundit with Russia Today this summer.

A third player on Mourinho's list of transfer targets is Chelsea's Willian. But Inter somehow managed to convince him to sign a new contract with the club.

Perisic scored 11 goals and set up nine more for Inter last season.

The 24-year old managed to carry his club form to the global level, playing an important role in Croatia's magical run to the final of the World Cup.

Inter Milan will demand big money for the World Cup star, as would Rebic's current club, Eintracht Frankfurt.
