The deadlock was eventually broken after 59 minutes as Javi Martinez rose above his marker to head from a corner to put Bayern ahead.

The final stages proved to be a similar affair for Mourinho's men, as they made no attempt at goal as Bayern held on for the win.

Bayern look to have a readymade replacement for Jerome Boateng should the Germany worldwide join Paris Saint-Germain as has been heavily rumoured.

"The other clubs that compete with us, they are really strong, or they already have fantastic teams and squads like Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City. or they are investing massively, like, for example, Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody".

United have so far signed three players this summer - Brazil midfielder Fred for £47m, Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant.

"He always wanted it", Mourinho said.

Marcus Rashford's first appearance since the World Cup failed to inspire Jose Mourinho's men, who were outclassed and starved of possession in their last friendly before Friday's Premier League opener at home to Leicester City.

Manchester United are considering a late offer for Chelsea star Willian that would see Anthony Martial move in the opposite direction, according to reports on Sunday.

Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof have all struggled to prove themselves at Old Trafford with regular mistakes pushing Mourinho to look for another centre-back.
