Javi Martinez's second-half header gave Bayern Munich a straightforward victory over Manchester United in a pre-season clash in Germany.

Manchester United revealed their new number 10 for the upcoming season during their final preseason warm-up match against Bayern Munich last night.

Former Manchester United chief exec Peter Kenyon says Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward need to sort out their relationship.

Mourinho predicted before kickoff it would be a "difficult" season if at least one more new player does not arrive before Thursday's deadline.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Boateng, who played 45 minutes against United on Sunday, wants to leave Bayern this summer after seven years at the Allianz Arena.

"Finally, it's over. Finally, such a hard pre-season is over".

Spain global Martinez nodded in from a corner on 59 minutes as the German champions overcame a lacklustre display from Mourinho's side who face Leicester City at home on Friday.


Bayern spent nearly the entire first forty-five minutes camped inside the United half, but the score remained goalless until Martinez's strike.

"The other clubs that compete with us are really strong", Mourinho said, before his side were comprehensively dominated in a 1-0 defeat by Bayern Munich.

Chelsea have shown in the past they are willing to do business with United after selling their rivals Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic while the Manchester giants did a similar straight swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January.

Since the 20-year-old burst onto the scene in 2015, he has become one of the most highly-rated young players in the world.

The Red Devils are still looking to bring in a centre-back to pair up with Eric Bailly for the upcoming season.

Mourinho also wants to sell Anthony Martial to make room for another forward but is at odds with Woodward, who would prefer to keep the French winger.
