Jose Mourinho has finalised his Manchester United squad ahead of the new season, according to reports.

The Portuguese boss has decided to keep Andreas Pereira at Old Trafford following a brilliant La Liga loan spell, returning to the club and slotting right back into the team during the pre-season.

Pereira bumped his squad number in earlier weeks, with Scott McTominay also making a senior step up after his impressive performances on the pre-season tour.

Here’s a look at United’s first-team squad:

De Gea

Romero

Joel Pereira

Valencia

Fosu-Mensah

Bailly

Smalling

Lindelof

Jones

Tuanzebe

Rojo

Blind

Darmian

Shaw

McTominay

Carrick

Herrera

Matic

Fellaini

Pogba

Andreas Pereira

Lingard

Young

Mata

Mkhitaryan

Martial

Rashford

Lukaku

Mourinho confirmed he was hoping for four new players this summer, but may be forced into only accepting three with Inter Milan playing hardball over a fee for Ivan Perisic.

He still has a strong squad ahead of the new season and the arrival of Matic has only improved the squad further as he hopes to build a solid partnership with Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera.
