Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho admits he got emotional after Wayne Rooney's departure for Everton, and he already misses his former captain.

"They sold Kyle Walker, I think, because they wanted to sell".

Lukaku will be expected to fill that void for United when the 2017-18 campaign gets underway, but Mourinho has now suggested he will also have the option of Ibrahimovic once again in six months' time.

"This season is going to be more hard but I think we have better conditions to fight for the Premier League", Mourinho told the BBC.

'I think it would be very bad for us to leave the USA without a defeat.

Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Andreas Pereira had their chances on goal to equalise for United in the second half but failed to test Barcelona stopper Jasper Cillessen.

And Mourinho believes the best approach taken in the current window has come from Spurs, who have yet to make a signing and received a reported £50m from Manchester City for Kyle Walker. For us to play against both in a pre-season without any kind of pressure was very good for us.

While United's recent history in the league is disappointing - seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement - the expectation is that Mourinho can significantly improve upon that in his second season at the helm. We are against fantastic teams, against unbelievable investments.

The Portuguese recently said he would love to be at the club for a further 15 years - but whenever he leaves, he wants the club to be stronger than when he found them.

Mourinho's side will next visit Norwegian side Valerenga on Sunday before facing Italian Serie A team Sampdoria in their final pre-season match in Dublin on Wednesday. "There is only one each of those players".

"I think until now they spent zero pounds, right?" We can not say we are going to improve the group because Wayne left.

The likes of Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier, Fabinho and Ivan Perisic have all been linked with the club, but Mourinho remains confident the club's top targets will still sign this summer.
