A flurry of reports emerged from Turkey last night that Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini is close to completing a move to Galatasaray.

It would also be the second time Mourinho has bought Matic, having signed him for Chelsea in 2014.

Manchester United head into their final preseason game of the summer on the back of yet another victory - and perhaps another new signing - after a comfortable 3-0 win over Norwegian side Valerenga.

Marouane Fellaini gave the Red Devils the lead on the stroke of half-time, and substitute Romelu Lukaku doubled the advanatge with a header just three minutes after the restart.

With Tottenham refusing to negotiate over Dier, United are hoping to tie up a deal for Chelsea's Matic before the Super Cup match against Real Madrid on August 8. He made 42 appearances last season, averaging statistics of 1.9 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.7 clearances per match. "Benfica is a giant club, I always think that players coming from Benfica come mentally ready because they're a big club and the responsibility to play for them makes players ready".

He added: "It is easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane".

Aside from one clear chance in the second half, United looked completely untroubled in defence as they comfortably dealt with everything Valerenga had going forward. "Forget it. He's too important to me".

"I could answer in many different ways but I'm not willing to lose my hair to speak about Antonio Conte'".

"We managers are many times happy with strikers, even when they don't score, because of the way they participate in team organisation and game plans".

Once again the goal came from a corner when a great cross from Andreas Pereira found Lukaku, who had only came onto the pitch, unmarked in the box and he powered home a great header to score his third goal of pre-season.
