Nevertheless, Mourinho said he departs the U.S. confident that his team have the qualities needed to thrive in the upcoming Premier League campaign.

The pace between United's attacking trio started to cause more problems. I think it would be very bad for us to leave the U.S. without a defeat, playing against teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, it would be very bad to go home with just victories.

The Red Devils reportedly forked out more than £120million to sign Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof this window, while United smashed the transfer record to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus last August. For us to play against both in a pre-season without any kind of pressure was very good for us.

United lost 1-0 to Barca in a friendly on Thursday morning, and Mourinho was full of praise for the Catalan club's superstars afterwards.

"Everybody speaks about the dimension of the investment at Man City, but there is another team that I feel the dimension of their investment is also phenomenal - Tottenham", he added. They keep everybody they want to keep. They, as well as further youth players in the shape of academy players, are set to feature as United play Barcelona on Wednesday night. "The other is an attacking player through the wings to give me more attacking options", he said. By and large, their transfer dealings in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era have seen them pay inflated fees for players, but the difference between United and City is when they have overspent, rather than by how much.

Of course it's only pre-season, and Jose Mourinho will claim its only a training session and he isn't bothered about results, but he will surely use this performance to highlight to Ed Woodward that his team need reinforcements. We are halfway through the market, and they buy [Antonio] Rüdiger, [Tiemoué] Bakayoko and [Álvaro] Morata.

The likes of Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier, Fabinho and Ivan Perisic have all been linked with the club, but Mourinho remains confident the club's top targets will still sign this summer.
