Manchester United ended their 2015-16 season on a high after winning the FA Cup 2016 beating Crystal palace 2-1 at Wembley. Louis Van Gaal was sacked a day later and Jose Mourinho has been appointmented as Manchester United manager. United will start their 2016-17 season with a pre-season tour of Asia as part of International Champions Cup where they will be playing Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund in China. Unlike the previous season’s this year pre-season tour is rather short with only two matches scheduled in China and United will return home for a training camp before they play community shield match against Leicester City on Sunday, 07 August 2016.
Jose Mourinho has a big task on his hand to improve United’s position in the league. Manchester United has failed to qualify for Champions League in 2 of three seasons since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. minimum requirement for Jose Mourinho is to qualify for champions league next season and do well in the cup competitions.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is most likely to sign for United and that will only strengthen their chances of success in the premier league next season.
