Chelsea target snubs Man United due to style of play concerns

Martial broke his silence shortly after the team landed back in the United Kingdom to confirm he will be back on Thursday, when there may well be a frosty reception despite the public justification of his absence.

Mourinho was expecting the 22-year-old to rejoin the squad in the U.S. when he gave him permission to leave last week. "They're coming back three days early to try and be available for the team", Mourinho said from Miami, where Man United defeated Real Madrid, 2-1 in its final US friendly match.

"The Premier League champions have since broken their transfer record to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City despite Guardiola saying in January the club could not spend "£100m on one player, or £90m or £80m". It's hard to pick out who will go down when the season hasn't started yet, but that's the way I see it right now.

Throughout preseason, Mourinho has griped due to not having a full squad of players to work with and because the players he wanted to sign have not arrived.

"He might have had a word with the manager already asking what the plan is for his future and if Jose has said he won't be playing much then it's in Chris' best interests to leave and get first team football".

The World Cup has exacerbated that, particularly with the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, and Jesse Lingard all reaching the later stages - yet his wrath has primarily been directed at Anthony Martial. Chelsea want to do business with Real but not for Modric: they are after his fellow Croatia Mateo Kovacic, who has snubbed a move to United, reportedly owing to objections to Mourinho's style of play.

"I think we have very good players". The French attacker didn't get back out to rejoin United's pre-season tour of USA.

But Mourinho won't forget this summer's transfer campaign in a hurry and will not be dissuaded from using it publicly as explanation for any evident failings in United's play at a later point.
