"From his point of view, he made the decision of wanting to play football still at the highest level", Mourinho added.
The ever-improving Henrikh Mkhitaryan is likely to feature on the right, instead of Juan Mata, and the pacey Marcus Rashford will probably be selected ahead of Anthony Martial - another player the manager isn't too keen on.
The match will be broadcast live on television by matches will be telecast live on Star Sports Select 1 and HD 1. But what exactly you can say is that in the preseason "Manchkster City" looked solid.

The club spent £75 million (about $97 million) on bring 24-year-old Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford to be his successor at the top of Mourinho's team. As for Spurs, Jake, Michael and Dan think they'll draw, while Peter expects Newcastle to run out winners in their first game back in the Premier League. But the Swede wants more. "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract. Players here now are so young and will stay for the future". But, Mkhitaryan lacks the consistency the Red Devils need to trouble opponents in Champions League.
United begin the new league season with a home clash against West Ham United on Sunday, with Mourinho hopeful of getting off to a good start as they look to improve on last term's disappointing sixth-placed finish.
Having been promoted as runners-up in the Championship last season, Albion are among many pundits picks to be relegated. I prefer the Mourinho in the dressing room, he's friendlier. After all, he always said he wanted to win the EPL. There have been a couple of games I've watched he's dived in. There, Perez apparently told him that Bale is up for sale.
