Jose Mourinho held his first press conference as Manchester United manager on Tuesday morning, which gave an insight into the way he wanted to take the club three years post-Sir Alex Ferguson. Having already signed Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and a deal in the process for Henrikh Mkhitaryan and with Paul Pogba in his sights, this coming season could be a good one for the Old Trafford club. Pre-season starts this week, for the players that were not involved in the Copa America or Euro 2016 and the club heads to China on the 18th July to face Borussia Dortmund (22nd July) and Manchester City (25th July), before flying to Sweden where they face Galatasaray (30th July). United then head to Manchester where they face Everton in Wayne Rooney’s testimonial before starting their season in te FA Community Shield against Leicester City at Wembley. Keep checking back throughout the remainder of the day and evening for more Manchester United news updates.
