Sources have told ESPN FC that Bayern defender Jerome Boateng is rapidly moving up the list of candidates after potential deals for Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina hit problems.

Time is running out for Jose Mourinho to secure the centre-back he wants so badly at Manchester United.

After spending most of the summer complaining about the make-up of his squad and the club's failure to land his preferred transfer targets, one of Jose Mourinho's wishes may be granted before the transfer window shuts this Thursday. These are the players that we have plus Lindelof, that started training two days ago, plus Marcus Rashford, Jones and Lukaku, because they gave to the group and to the team three days of their holidays.

The Bundesliga champions are willing to cash in on Boateng this summer, with the club well stocked in central defence, and United are reported to have made official contact over a transfer on Sunday.

Have your say below.

Spain worldwide Martinez nodded in from a corner on 59 minutes as the German champions overcame a lacklustre display from Jose Mourinho's side, who kick off the Premier League at home to Leicester City on Friday.

Naby Keita is fit again after sitting out the last two games, and Daniel Sturridge has also returned to full training. "We play a role and there is a certain value on that and Alisson is a world-class goalkeeper", Begovic said .

Even though Spurs are open to a swap deal that would see United forward Anthony Martial, Old Trafford officials remain reluctant to sell the Frenchman to a Premier League rival, but Mourinho is continuing to push for that stance to change.

Mourinho warned on Sunday he faces a "difficult" season if executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward can not add to the squad before the first game of the season against Leicester on Friday.

'The players were, once more, brilliant.

"There was a moment when I was looking to the area and it was Axel, centre-back on the left, Demetri, left wing-back, Garner midfield on the left and Chong".

The United manager has overseen a miserable off-season and, speaking after the game on Sunday, he welcomed the return of the Premier League.
