Alexis responds to Mourinho's call & caps off strong tour with superb showing

The Chilean forward has taken advantage of his first preseason in years and hinted that he can return to the form he showed at previous stops. Jose Mourinho's biggest stars weren't on tour. The manager won't tire of reminding you of that .

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford didn't travel for Manchester United's International Champions Cup contests. Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard didn't either. It left a skeleton crew of experienced players trying to pull along some of United's promising but green academy talents.

"The players with more experience are trying to help the young boys," Mourinho said before United's 2-1 victory against Real Madrid on Tuesday.

"I know they’re pretty tired because they’re playing almost every minute of every match and we play one match every three days, but there’s the pride, the professionalism and they’re going to try to help the young boys and the young boys have to enjoy the occasion with big crowds. Real Madrid is always a motivation for everyone, so we’re going do our best then go home and finally wait for the boys who were in the World Cup."
