Mourinho returns for United duty ahead of US tour as Lukaku move edges closer

Date Posted,July 6, 2017

Jose Mourinho returns to Manchester United duty today ahead of next week’s departure for the club’s US tour.

The Red Devils boss is hoping a move for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku can be completed in quick time. The Belgian currently holidaying with Paul Pogba in Los Angeles, where reports suggest a medical could take place following a £75m fee being agreed.

The Portuguese has been on holiday and compassionate leave after his father, Felix, passed away last month.

The Red Devils play LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona over the course of this month.
