Jose Mourinho is in constant contact with Kostas Manolas’s representatives about the possibility of bringing the Roma defender to Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

The Portuguese coach is thought to be finalising his plans for the summer transfer window after his appointment as United’s new manager on a three-year contract on Friday.

Mourinho is looking to bolster his rearguard options at Old Trafford as he prepares for his first season in charge of the Red Devils.

And Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli has claimed that the new United boss is in regular contact with Manolas’ representatives about the possibility of bringing the 24-year-old Greece international to the club.

He tweeted:

United are expected to be one of the Premier League’s biggest spending clubs this summer after the disappointment of their fifth-placed finish in the top flight last season under Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman also led United to FA Cup glory before his sacking last week.
