The three stars had been involved with their countries at the World Cup at the semi-final stages and even third placed play off.
With United desperately shorthanded and in real need of some first team players to help them avoid a slow start to their Premier League campaign, Lukaku, Rashford and Jones have shown their dedication.
There’s no doubt Mourinho will be extremely pleased with all three and there’s certainly concerns over what it means for the other players who haven’t agreed to do the same.
The Portuguese boss has been complaining all summer long how he doesn’t have all his players for pre-season but he may get a part of his wish to come true.
Jose says Lukaku has agreed to come back 3 days early from his holiday to help the squad. Rashford and Jones are doing the same.

Romelu will definitely be a crucial part of whatever plans the former Real Madrid manager has for the season whilst Marcus and Phil will offer important cover.
Hopefully the early return won’t affect either of these players’ long term fitness or mental burnout in a crucial season for Manchester United.
