Jose Mourinho’s next Man United priority revealed – report
Jose Mourinho is focusing all his Manchester United transfer efforts on signing Paul Pogba this summer, say reports
Jose Mourinho has made signing Paul Pogba from Juventus his next top transfer priority at Manchester United, according to reports.
The Daily Record is claiming that the newly-appointed Manchester United boss has his sights firmly set on luring Pogba back to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
Mourinho has already moved quickly to bolster his squad at Old Trafford ahead of his first campaign in charge, securing the services of defender Eric Bailly and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to follow suit after United agreed a fee with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of the playmaker.
France international Pogba has been heavily linked with a move back to Old Trafford after he left the club back in 2012 as he was deemed surplus to requirements by Sir Alex Ferguson.
The 23-year-old has earned plenty of praise for his performances for Juve since leaving United, and the Daily Record claims that Mourinho is keen to bring the midfielder back to the club.
The same report says that Juventus are open to selling Pogba for a minimum transfer fee of €80m and that the player’s agent has conducted talks with a number of Europe’s top clubs.
United finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
