Mourinho rules out Ronaldo move
Jose Mourinho ruled out any attempt to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford after Manchester United opened their US tour here Saturday with a 5-2 rout of the Los Angeles Galaxy. United manager Mourinho is keen to bolster his ranks further after already strengthening his squad with the additions of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku. But the Portuguese manager poured cold water on the possibility of an attempt to prise United legend Ronaldo away from Real Madrid.
"I'm not going to waste my time thinking about players who are mission impossible," Mourinho told reporters after the win.
Earlier, England striker Marcus Rashford scored twice with Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan bagging United's other goals in a one-sided victory in front of 25,667 fans at the StubHub Center. New striker Lukaku was unable to get in on the goals after a 45-minute debut in the second half. Lukaku missed one golden chance four minutes into his United debut, with his shot saved by Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe. However Mourinho was satisfied with Lukaku's "unselfish" display in leading the line. "Lukaku is a target man, he plays with his back to opponents," Mourinho said. "A good thing for me is to see that he's a team player. He's not selfish. He's not obsessed with goals. "He was not that worried about himself, he was worried about the improvement of the team."  Mourinho later revealed that Rashford, who looks to have added a physical dimension to his game, was still growing. "It's just the natural evolution of a kid," Mourinho said. "He's already taller than when I arrived 13 months ago. He's three centimeters taller. He's put on some muscle but without any kind of specific work because his speed is his most important quality and we don't want to lose that."
