Mourinho: Quality over quantity for new Man Utd signings

Date published: Sunday 26th February 2017 10:45

Jose Mourinho has admitted he plans to add quality rather than quantity to his Manchester United squad this summer.

The club have been linked with a whole host of names over the past few weeks, with Sunday’s papers alone linking them with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Stefan De Vrij and Neymar, while Antoine Griezmann and Victor Lindelof has also been heavily linked.

United failed to make any moves during the January transfer window, with Mourinho admitting he was planning on doing his business in the summer.

And the manager has underlined those plans, confirming that he will target more signings, but is planning a similarly low number of arrivals with only four players arriving last summer.

“I think with this group of players, the squad we have and the difficulties we are having during the season, I think we are more than fine,” he told Sky Sports.

“I think we will be ready in July to open the door for two or three good players to help us to improve our level.

“You reach a certain level of stability, you find your way to play, your philosophy and this is very important. We are stable in the way the team plays and we need one more push.

 

How many trophies will Man Utd win this season?

  • Just the EFL Cup
  • EFL Cup and FA Cup
  • EFL Cup and Europa League
  • Europa League and FA Cup
  • Just the FA Cup
  • Just the Europa League
  • All three
  • None

 

“The next push is the next transfer window. We didn’t use it in the winter and we are obviously going to use it in the summer and trust the players we have.

“Like Mr Woodward was saying, we will keep a huge percentage of the players we have at this moment in the squad. We need the next push.”
