  • I submitted five-man list months ago – Mourinho laments United's transfer business

Mourinho, who has become increasingly downbeat during the tour, cut a frustrated figure as he spoke about the club's relative inactivity in the transfer market.

Speaking after United's 4-1 loss to Liverpool at the International Champions Cup on Saturday, Mourinho told MUTV: "He has the baby and after the baby is born - handsome baby, full of health, thank god".

The Red Devils have made three new acquisitions so far this summer after having tied up deals for Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant.

Mourinho has spent much of the past two weeks in a strop, but yesterday evening, after watching his side suffer a heavy defeat against their rivals in front of 101,254 fans in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the United manager was even more downbeat than usual.

Matic has undergone surgery for an abdominal pain and will be out for the start of the Premier League season while Mourinho was a tad irritated by absence of Shaw and Smalling, claiming he doesn't know when they will be back.

He added: "I think it's an incredible day; there are a lot of fans here and it's my first game for this big club and I'm really happy and of course with the attractive goal". It's possible. And that one I gave a list to my club five names a few months ago, and I wait to see if it's possible to have one of these players.

"If it is possible it is possible, if it is not possible it is not possible".

Mourinho however has given updates on why the trio couldn't play the game which, although only a pre-season match, some might say highlighted the disparity in the strength in depth of our team and that of Liverpool. So don't look to this. We don't have wingers, we don't have strikers, he is the only who is here.

"For me, these guys are phenomenal in terms of attitude and respect for the club".

Explaining that he would ideally like two new players before the close of the window, Mourinho said that he only believed it was possible to bring in one more player.

But none of that money has gone on defenders, though they did spend £75m on Virgil van Dijk in January.

Juan Mata had the ball in the net for United in the 20th minute but the midfielder strayed narrowly offside as he raced on to a superb long pass from Alexis Sanchez.

"The atmosphere was obviously fantastic. It was good fun".
