Livescore: Result of Manchester United vs Bayern Munich

It has emerged that Mourinho's awkward encounter with Woodward in the tunnel after United's final game in Miami was their first meeting of any kind on the 17-day trip.

Apart from these three additions, Jose Mourinho's side have been notable by their relative lack of activity in the transfer market.

And afterwards Mourinho asked Pogba, Lukaku, Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini - the players still recovering from the World Cup in Russian Federation - to make themselves available at Old Trafford on Friday.

It was in contrast to Anthony Martial, who, according to ESPN FC sources, was left behind in Manchester to do double training sessions after leaving the tour of the United States to attend to the birth of his son.

Eric Bailly limped off at the start of the second half in Munich, as did Ander Herrera.

The deadlock was eventually broken after 59 minutes as Javi Martinez rose above his marker to head from a corner to put Bayern ahead.

And while Mourinho is glad to see the back of pre-season, he did reserve some praise for how his youthful side handled itself against global stars. Fantastic experience for the boys.

Mourinho was the man to take Willian to Stamford Bridge in 2013 and he proved to be an excellent signing having provided 44 goals and 39 assists in his 236 appearances to help the Blues win 2 Premier League titles and 3 domestic cups.

'My CEO knows what I want for quite a long time, I know he tries to do the best for me and I still have a few days to wait to see what happens.

"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 other clubs that compete with us are really strong", Mourinho said, before his side were comprehensively dominated in a 1-0 defeat by Bayern Munich.

"We were playing against their best team".
