Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hinted a move for Henrikh Mkhitaryan is virtually done – and says a fourth target – possibly Paul Pogba – is also on his agenda.
Speaking at his first press conference since being appointed Man Utd boss, Mourinho said: “I want specialists. From this four, we have three.
“Until we have the fourth we are working hard on that.
“When we get the fourth I can breathe.”
Mourinho insists he wants his business all wrapped up early and continued: “We don’t go to August 31. We do it before then.
“I want the players I’m keeping to be happy. If a player leaves, he has to be replaced. We get the 3rd and hopefully we get the fourth.”
When asked if the transfers were close, Mourinho admitted: “I don’t know. I think the third player is official, right?”
