Jose Mourinho insists England have reason to be optimistic despite falling agonisingly short of the World Cup final.

Perisic scored the equalising goal and then provided the assist for Mario Mandzukic's victor as Zlatko Dalic's side came from behind to record a 2-1 victory after extra-time, producing a display that reminded viewers why the former Inter boss had made him his number one transfer target after taking charge of Manchester United last summer.

Speaking during Russia Today's coverage of Wednesday's game, Mourinho said: "Perisic is the kind of winger that is different to the others".

In bringing Lozano, a 22-year-old coming off a 19 goal and 11 assist season in the Netherlands, United would be both filling a current need, the lack of right-wing options, and looking to the future.

They do have a big pre-season, however, as they take on European giants Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, AC Milan in the summer.

Kroos has been one of the best midfielders in world football since moving to the Bernabeu from Bayern Munich in 2014 and he's played a key role in winning three Champions League's over the past four seasons.

Jose Mourinho is set to include a number of young players in Manchester United's squad for their preseason tour of the United States after training with the first team at Carrington. Then we have Lee Grant, a new goalkeeper signing who may be the understudy to David De Gea.
