Jose Mourinho has included Zlatan Ibrahimović in the Manchester United squad for tomorrow’s friendly against Galatasaray in Gothenburg but has left out, among others, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Adnan Januzaj.

Ibrahimovic trained with United for the first time at Carrington yesterday but newly retired German international Schweinsteiger was conspicuous in his absence, sparking rumours he will soon be offloaded by Mourinho after just one unremarkable season at Old Trafford.

Others said to soon be shown the door by the former Madrid boss are Januzaj, Andreas Pereira and forwards James Wilson and Will Keane, none of who will make the trip to Sweden.

David Moyes is thought to want to bring the young Belgian on loan to Sunderland, having enjoyed a good working relationship with him during his brief stint at United's helm.

However, the likes of Juan Mata and Memphis Depay seem to have done enough to ingratiate themselves to Mourinho  for the time being.
