Romelu Lukaku

After missing out on a place in England's World Cup squad, he is one of the few senior players on United's preseason tour of the United States.

But the Frenchman enjoyed a spectacular World Cup in Russian Federation, crowned by his decisive goal against Croatia in the final in Moscow.

Mourinho confirmed the 25-year-old, who has often been criticised for his performances since arriving from Juventus in 2016, will miss the start of the season while he recovers from his exertions this summer.

"I can only imagine that is only positive, is unbelievable, is fantastic".

"So many good players have never had the chance to be world champions or their country is not strong enough".

The Old Trafford outfit will face Mexican side Club America on Friday, July 20, as they get their pre-season program started in style - (kick-off 03:00 BST).

On Sanchez, Mourinho said "he's very sad, it's not good for him or me, not good for anyone".

"I sent a nice message before the World Cup and during it I did not disturb anyone".

"The future for him in the national team amongst that great group can only be brilliant".

The United manager has brought a threadbare squad to the United States for their preseason tour with a number of players on holiday following the tournament in Russian Federation.

"The pre-season is very bad", he said.

'I did with Paul what I did with my players.

"Next week will come De Gea, Matic and Fred which is good, especially for Fred, a new player to be with us".

The club have signed Diogo Dalot and Fred so far this summer, missing out on reported targets such as Willian and Ivan Perisic due to their prolonged involvements at the World Cup in Russian Federation. It's hard to say that to win the World Cup is not good for a player's career. "That complicates things. I would lie if I said I am not anxious about it, but it is what it is".

"To bring them back before that would be, 'OK I have you for the first match of the season but maybe I don't have you in three of four months'".
