Jose Mourinho has appointed Ricardo Formosinho as a scout at Manchester United, according to reports

Jose Mourinho has made his first signing as Manchester United manager by appointing Ricardo Formosinho as a scout, according to reports.

The Portuguese coach is settling into life at Old Trafford after being appointed as the club’s new manager on a three-year contract last week.

Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings as he bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

However, The Sun is now reporting that Mourinho’s first recruit as United boss has been to bring in Formosinho, who he worked with during his spells at Porto and Real Madrid.

The same report goes on to say that Mourinho is also set to appoint assistant manager Rui Faria and tactical scouting chief Silvinho Louro at Old Trafford in the coming days.
