Romelu Lukaku on target as 10-man Manchester United down Real Salt Lake

Mourinho is targeting a third summer signing following the arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku and defender Victor Lindelof at Old Trafford for a combined fee of over £100m. I have to admit that it is very difficult because of the pressure around our jobs, everybody putting pressure on managers and things that people say - that we have to win, but in reality only one can win and every year it is getting more difficult.

In the 6-2 win against the Galaxy, Petke started to see the style of play he had been hoping for: side-to-side ball movement, building from the back, offensive and defensive balance.

"I didn't take a lot of time (to settle in), I know most of the lads from before, as a lot of them are my neighbours".

"Juan Mata always gets to double figures for the team and the likes of Anthony Martial, Rashford, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, because there is no doubt that Lukaku will score goals".

"The distinction is important".

In addition to United, they will be facing Real Madrid and Tottenham while in the United States.

"I'm not interested in what Chelsea FC does, really", Mourinho said.

"It was obvious they were going to sign a striker after the situation with the manager and Diego".

The Special One then took a subtle dig at his team's next opponent and local rivals, Manchester City.

His transfer also represents the fourth high profile client of super-agent Mino Raiola to join the 20-time English champions in the last year.

The longest he has stayed at a club was during his first tenure at Chelsea, when he entered a fourth season at the helm in 2007-08. We are not a club that is ready to buy and buy non-stop.

The Spaniard, who is likely to be out for a week, had only just come on as Mourinho named an entirely different line-up for the second half.

Mourinho has often said in recent months that he was hoping to bring in four new players but admitted at a press conference last night that he now would be happy with three.
