Man Utd midfielder Lingard: Martial will only get better

United took the lead shortly before half-time thanks to a sensational piece of play from Anthony Martial, the forward jinking away from Dani Carvajal, Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez to give Jesse Lingard the simplest of finishes at the back post. "We always try to make improvements", Zidane said.

Real's 18-year-old right-back Achraf Hakimi was outstanding during the second half against Martial, reading the game well, tackling cleanly and also showing great footwork in tight situations.

Guardiola's presence was a factor in Danilo's decision, and he added: "Of course, he's been very important because I love his playing style and he's convinced me in the talks we have had".

"We've had some very good players move on, and some young guys come in".

"We hope we continue to find our form fast and that's what we're working on".

If Benjamin Mendy is indeed signed from Monaco as expected, Danilo will be his backup as well, which means Guardiola might be happy with just three full-backs instead of four.

"It's a big day and a pleasure to be part of this team", said Danilo.

The former Galactico also denied that comments he made on Saturday about the departure of Alvaro Morata to Chelsea leaving him with a forward less than last season had been meant as a message to club president Florentino Perez. Here are five of the players who I feel are destined to flop at their new clubs in 2017/18.

"If Juan Mata (ankle) and Ander Herrera (hip) are not a real problem in terms of injuries, I would say it has been a ideal pre-season for us".

"Now we go to DC which is halfway home nearly".

Most important at the moment, Zidane maintained, was getting ready for another looming match-up with United, in the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje on August 8. "We are preparing for the eighth".
