"You hear a lot of people saying Jose Mourinho needs to get the best out of him but he needs to do it for himself and prove he's at that level to help Man United".

Mourinho wants the money gotten from the sales utilized in the January transfer window to get another player.

However, Lopetegui said: "It's pretty likely that he'll also join up with Castilla, where he'll have the chance to play every Sunday and that'll probably be what we do".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he is getting closer to a full strength squad with several players back in training ahead of Monday's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.


United are also thought to fear that Martial could go on to be a big hit elsewhere if they let him go.

Mourinho's future at Old Trafford doesn't look secure.

Philippe Lamboley, Martial's agent, had claimed then that United were not serious about keeping the forward after eight months of contract talks came to nothing. He said: "I am not going to comment".

After the defeat to Brighton Pogba admitted United had the wrong attitude and said he was at fault as much as anyone.


"I think hard, after the match you lose, is always hard, especially for people that really care about the job, about being football professionals, but after that you think about the next match", he added. "So a hard match".

Nemanja Matic, Alex Sanchez and Antonio Valencia all missed the trip to the south coast but has been back in training this week and all three could be included for the visit of Spurs.

"You have to play against 19 opponents at Old Trafford and away, you have to play against everyone, I don't know if it's the right time".

"[Diogo] Dalot is also training with the team for the first time this week so in terms of medical department they are nearly free".
