Man United target midfielder as Jose Mourinho’s first signing – report
Manchester United want to sign Miralem Pjanic from Roma this summer, according to reports
Manchester United are keen to make Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic Jose Mourinho’s first signing at Old Trafford, according to reports.
The Portuguese coach is believed to already be working hard on revamping his squad as he prepares for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
The 26-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international has been touted as a target for the Red Devils as Mourinho sets about strengthening the spine of his new team.
Now, the Manchester Evening News is reporting that United are ready to step up their interest in Pjanic ahead of next season.
The same report goes on to say that the player would be able to report for pre-season training at Carrington on 4 July, but that his proposed move to Old Trafford could cast Juan Mata’s future at the club into doubt.
Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for at least four new signings this summer as he prepares for a return to the Premier League.
