Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to make four new signings in key positions this summer, say reports

Jose Mourinho has instructed Manchester United officials to prepare to make four new signings this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new recruits as they prepare for life under their newly-appointed manager.

United have been linked with a host of names in recent days following Mourinho’s appointment as Louis van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford last week.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is believed to be close to agreeing a move to Old Trafford, while the Red Devils have also been linked with an audacious swoop to sign Lionel Messi.

Now, the Manchester Evening News is reporting that Mourinho is keen to make four new signings ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

The same story goes on to say that Mourinho wants to bring in a right midfielder, a centre forward, a central midfielder and a centre-back as priorities during the summer transfer window.
