Valerenga 0-3 Manchester United: Mourinho's men stroll to victory in Norway

Valerenga 0-3 Manchester United: Mourinho's men stroll to victory in Norway

Fellaini has spent four seasons at United after arriving in September 2013 for £27.5m under David Moyes.

Marouane Fellaini opened the scoring on the cusp of half-time with a deflected header and his compatriot Romelu Lukaku doubled the lead within minutes of the restart.

The Frenchman played with more freedom - and pressed a lot higher up the field - against his Norwegian hosts that he did for the majority of last season and with the Matic anchor behind him and the constant running and metronomic passing Ander Herrera, goals should come a lot more freely. Then again, Mourinho could just be lying.

Manchester United eased to a serene 3-0 victory over Valerenga as the European leg of Tour 2017, presented in Aon, began in Norway.

Will Victor Lindelof start for United on the opening day of the season?




This could be a sad day for the Premier League.

This is a gesture of faith in Fellaini that will, no doubt, anger a large portion of Man United supporters still averse to seeing the Belgian in their side's line-up, but it emphatically underlines Mourinho's appreciation of the midfielder's work rate and his role going forward.

"We know it will be hard next season".

Galatasaray sporting director, Cenk Ergun confirmed the club's interest in signing Fellaini, and it is suggested that all that remains is the agreement of a transfer fee as personal terms have already been agreed. We want to try to avoid a Mourinho season. "Forget it. He's too important to me".

Even though Fellaini has enjoyed a few high points in his time at United, numerous club's fans struggled to accept a player of his ilk was up to the task of playing in his favoured attacking midfield role or as a makeshift forward. Jose Mourinho made six changes to the side that lost narrowly to Barcelona in Washington DC and the Reds, clad in grey, started brightly under gloomy, overcast Oslo skies.
