Jose Mourinho has identified a top scout to bring to Manchester United this summer

Jose Mourinho is keen to bring top scout Francisco Oliveira with him to Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

The Portuguese coach is getting used to life in his new role after signing a three-year contract to become the Red Devils’ new manager last month.

Mourinho is already believed to be working hard on his transfer strategy for the summer as he bids to revamp his squad ahead of his first season in charge.

Now, Portuguese outlet A Bola is reporting that the 63-year-old Oliveira was one of the first names Mourinho put on his recruitment list following his arrival at Old Trafford.
