Jose Mourinho

One Man United star missed the flight to Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich vs Manchester United

Manchester United’s fractious summer programme comes to an end on Sunday night with a visit to German champions Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich won the Bundesliga title once again last season.

Man United finished as runners-up to Man City in the Premier League.

Bayern Munich have had an active summer, but have only won one of their three matches. A 3-1 win over PSG was followed up with defeats to Juventus and Manchester City.

Next Sunday, Bayern Munich play Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Super Cup.

Manchester United kick off their Premier League season with a home match versus Leicester City on Friday night.

No sign of Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial was nowhere to be seen as Manchester United’s squad flew to Germany on Sunday morning for the Bayern game.

Martial has been absent from the Man United squad since he left the American tour due to the birth of his second child.

Jose Mourinho has been irritated by Martial’s absence in pre-season. While transfer rumours continue to swirl that Martial may leave Old Trafford before the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday at 5pm UK time.

Martial has recently taken to social media to explain why he left Man United’s US tour:

Thanks for all your posts. My little Swan is fine but for the mother it is harder. Thanks to God she is better now. Sorry but my family will always come first, back tomorrow in Manchester.
