Jose Mourinho targeting two more signings for Man United this summer

16 July 2017

Jose Mourinho could take his summer spending at Manchester United beyond the £200m mark, as he has reportedly been backed by the club's hierarchy to further strengthen.

Manchester United, at present, are unwilling to sell their best player, but it is believed that Jose Mourinho would agree if the price is right.

So far, the Red Devils have added Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku to their squad.

Speaking on United's pre-season tour in the US, Mourinho said "He [Matic] is a Chelsea player and I can't speak about him".

"We don't have our door closed". Well, we know that Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata won't be one of them.

Lukaku and Lindelof will be under the spotlight as major acquisitions, with both players expected to secure starting places in the season ahead. We need more, we wanted four, so I would say 50 per cent of the job is done, but I don't want to say that because everything is so hard.

The Belgium global is due to make his debut on United's pre-season tour of America next week.

When questioned about Ibrahimovic, Mourinho chose to be honest and said the possibility was there for a new deal to be agreed once Zlatan has recovered from his injury in January.

"It's possible, it's open". From his point of view he made the decision of wanting to play football still at the highest level.

"Zlatan wasn't happy with the way his season finished, he challenged himself to keep playing at the top level".

Lukaku hit 25 goals in the Premier League last term, according to WhoScored.com, and he will hope to at least match those numbers in his first season under Mourinho in Manchester.

"So maybe we don't get two, we get one, but we need one more to give us more options".
