Manchester United have arrived at the Lowry Hotel as they continue to prepare for their opening Premier League game of the season against Leicester on Friday night.
Key players David de Gea, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were all pictured entering the plush city centre hotel, usually frequented by the Red Devils on the night before matches.
Manager Jose Mourinho will be delighted to have all his key players under one roof after a difficult pre-season campaign that has left the atmosphere around the club toxic.Mourinho, who continues to reside at the Lowry on a permanent basis, has cut a frustrated figure in recent weeks over the club’s lack of business in the transfer market
He was also angered at the options available to him during their United States tour, with a host of familiar faces recovering from the World Cup.
The United boss has called the hotel his home since arriving in 2016, and although he at one stage discussed putting down more permanent roots in the city, the Portuguese is comfortable enough in his surroundings to stay.
