Manchester United 2 – 1 Real Madrid Goals Match Highlights

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he "doesn't know" when forward Anthony Martial will link up with the squad after his side beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the International Champions Cup.

Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera earned United a first 90-minute win of their United States trip, but they had to do without Martial in Miami after he left the tour last week to attend the birth of his daughter.

Mourinho questioned why the French international did not return for Saturday's 4-1 defeat by Liverpool.

Asked if Martial would be part of his squad for Sunday's game against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena – five days before the start of the Premier League season – he said: "I don't know."

Martial has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford and it is understood the club would be willing to let him leave for a team outside the Premier League.

Mourinho did confirm attackers Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku and defender Phil Jones had volunteered to return to training three days early in a bid to ensure they are fully fit for the Premier League opener against Leicester on 9 August.

Chilean forward Sanchez impressed against Real in the final match of United's five-game trip, scoring United's first and creating the second when he nodded Juan Mata's cross into the path of Herrera, who finished with a first-time shot.

Summer signing Fred started in midfield, while goalkeeper David de Gea returned in goal.

Gareth Bale started for Real but his only chance of note was a curling shot that went wide.

Karim Benzema, the single player who began the Champions League final win over Liverpool to start in Miami, pulled one back in first-half stoppage time.

Fans reactions:

Anxious Chileshe May Thunder and lightening strike any plastic fan who will talk about parking the bus and Madrid been a B team with Bale Benzima Kroos Isco Asensio Theo and so on. The lads picked up a win against the the kings of European football

Benson Mutuah With two singings, the club could be the best.. Tobby or Maguire as CD, and Willian as the right winger..
Jose is no longer parking the bus but has developed a new tactic. Attack, and play at the midfield.. Nice game, nice plan.. Sweet play

Lily Mustafa Congratulations ..we beat real Madrid…first half aww..I love it..second half ..we already lead..so Jose back to his style…Hehehe..defensive style…but I love it..great job mou..great job for the players.. I love Eric bailly…
How's Tony MARTIAL..why is he not with the team now??

Abdulrasheed Jimoh What I love about watching Alexis, Mata, Herrera and Pereira interplay is there seems to be a conscious effort to work on it. Last season we relied too heavily on moments of individual brilliance. Link up looks sharp and natural.

ReadWank I'm fans mu n real madrid.. One thing I'm afraid of, the big change from the madrid game. Usually they rely on organized counterattacks, with the arrival of lopetegui games changed drastically, overloaded ball possession, too long holding the ball in the middle, relying on one or two playmakers, with this kind of game now we can see in the arena of europe, the result city, barca , spain .. What can they do in europe
