New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho does some cardio as he takes a break from summer transfer dealings

Jose Mourinho looked to be doing some cardio ahead of his first pre-season as Manchester United manager.

The 53-year-old took over the reins at Old Trafford in May after United sacked Louis van Gaal following a fifth-place finish in the Premier League table.

Mourinho has already been hard at work in the summer transfer window after he signed Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly in a £30m deal from La Liga side Villarreal earlier this month.

The United manager is being heavily linked with a move to sign France and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba in recent weeks, while Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is thought to be another top target for the 20-time English champions.

However, Mourinho was taking a break from planning for his first season as United manager on Wednesday after what appeared to be an impromptu cardio session with an exotic back drop.
