Jose Mourinho: My remaining Man United summer transfer plans
Jose Mourinho is feeling confident about Manchester United's remaining transfer business this summer
Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is “calm” about Manchester United’s remaining plans for the summer transfer window.
The Portuguese coach is currently gearing up for his first season in charge of the Red Devils following his appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.
Mourinho has already moved quickly to reshape his squad ahead of his first campaign in charge at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have secured the signings of defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan so far this summer.
United are inevitably still being linked with a host of other players as Mourinho looks to further bolster his squad at Old Trafford.
Mourinho outlined that he wanted to bring in four new players in the summer transfer window, and the former Chelsea boss is relaxed about his side’s dealings so far ahead of his first season.
Speaking at a news conference in China on Thursday, Mourinho said: “I asked them [the United board] for four players, four profiles of players I needed and I gave them options.
“So 75 per cent of the job is done. We have just 25 per cent left to do until 31 August. We are in great conditions to have what I would consider to be a good market for us.
“We are calm. We know the kind of players we want. We have three faces to fill the profile and I am really confident Mr [Ed] Woodward and the owners will get the player I want to have the good balance.”
United finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season before they opted to sack Louis van Gaal in May.
