Belgian worldwide Romelu Lukaku (24) has sealed the deal with Manchester United after Everton agreed to a transfer fee of £75m and a salary of £200,000 a week. "We wanted four new players, fifty percent of the job is done".
Phil Jones made 17 starts in the league in 2016/17, and barring a brief period between November and January when he excelled at the heart of United's back four with Argentine Marcos Rojo, the English worldwide found himself injured for the second time only to be sidelined for seven games in April, returning to the squad for the last four fixtures - of which United only won one, on the final day. "Everyone played 45 mins and importantly everyone competed and felt the system". We need two more players, at least one.
The second-half effort was much better for the Galaxy, with the lineup resembling as close to a regular starting 11 as Coach Curt Onalfo can send out.
He missed one golden chance four minutes into his United debut, with his shot saved by Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe.
Mourinho will change things up in the second half. Jones was making his first appearance since May6 after suffering a knee injury.
United needed just two minutes to take a 1-0 lead.
Rashford again struck in the 20th minute.
Galaxy full-back Nathan Smith was caught in possession by Jesse Lingard, who poked the ball through for Rashford to curl his finish into the bottom corner with aplomb and get United's 2017-18 campaign off to a ideal start.
"It's just natural evolution of a kid", Mourinho said of Rashford. "An accumulation of minutes on a pitch. His speed the most important quality he has".
Marouane Fellaini, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial also struck for United in the 5-2 win. Lukaku's strength, size, aerial threat, speed and technical ability make him adaptable to any team's formation needs.
On Morata's failed move, the Portuguese said: "I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player". We played a stronger group in the second half.
However, after seeing a one-on-one saved early in the second half, Lukaku was unable to open his United account in a 5-2 stroll.
Manchester United continues the tour of the USA with a stop in Utah on Monday against Real Salt Lake in another friendly. The Spaniard is still being closely monitored by Real Madrid, despite having several years left on his contract at the moment.
United's new arrival, who is only 24, had an equally impressive scoring record in his time at Goodison Park, bagging 68 league goals from 141 top-flight matches, and he will be hopeful of continuing that fine form at the Theatre of Dreams.
The Danish goalkeeper recently signed a five year deal with the 2015/16 Premier League Champions, although the player's insistence to play at Old Trafford could see a fee of £30 million sufficient to land the talented goalkeeper. The pace when he builds up a head of steam instantly turns defence into attack and may cure United of some of the stodgy approach play which hampered them too frequently last season.
