Jose Mourinho to make £19m Man United bid for winger – report

Jose Mourinho is keen to push through a £19m deal to bring Andre Carrillo to Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is set to push through a £19m move to bring Andre Carrillo to Manchester United, according to reports.

All eyes have been on Old Trafford in recent days after the Red Devils won the FA Cup on Saturday before sacking Louis van Gaal on Monday evening to pave the way for Mourinho to take over.

Attentions will now inevitably turn to the summer transfer window and United’s recruitment plans for the next few months as they look to break back into the top four next season.

Now, The Sun is reporting that United are ready to splash £19m on Carrillo – but only after he completes free transfer to Benfica.

Carrillo is still a Sporting Lisbon player but has not featured since last September due a contract feud.

The report says that United will wait for Carrillo to move to Benfica before tabling a big-money bid to land the winger.
