Jose Mourinho Manchester United TEAMtalk

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he would like to sign two more players at Manchester United this summer.

So far Mourinho has sold Daley Blind for £14.1million to Ajax, while he has brought in Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant for a combined fee of around £70million.

That reportedly leaves United with another £85million to spend in the transfer window that closes on August 9.

Speculation suggests that the Red Devils will look to sign a back-up forward to support Romelu Lukaku this campaign and a new centre-back.

And Mourinho confirmed on their pre-season tour in America that he hopes to bring two more fresh faces before the window shuts.

“One thing is what I would like,” Mourinho told ESPN.

“Another thing is what is going to happen.”

Asked exactly how many new signings he wanted, Mourinho said: “I would get two more players.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho has reportedly made a U-turn over the future of Anthony Martial with the United boss now thinking about selling the Frenchman but only to a club outside of the Premier League.
