Jose Mourinho reveals Man United January transfer plans: We’ll buy this many players

Jose Mourinho says it is unlikely that Manchester United will buy more than one player in January

Jose Mourinho has hinted that it is unlikely Manchester United will buy more than one player in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils have inevitably been linked with a host of new stars as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

Manchester United were one of the busiest Premier League clubs during the summer months as they brought in four new players following Mourinho’s appointment as manager back in May.

The Red Devils signed Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan as Mourinho looked to strengthen the spine of his team at Old Trafford.

There is bound to be plenty more speculation about who the Red Devils could sign in the coming days as the January window approaches.

However, the Manchester United manager has played down suggestions that he could be set to make a large number of signings next month.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Mourinho said: In Portugal, the front pages say every player in Portugal now is coming to Manchester United. It’s normal, a few seasons ago every player from Portugal was going to Chelsea, going to Real Madrid, it’s normal with the connection.

“But I keep saying the same, I like my squad. I believe more in the summer market than in the winter window. More time, more choice, I think it’s better. But let’s see what happens.

“If we buy a player we buy a player, we’re not buying two, three or four. If we open the door for someone to leave it’s not because we push him, it’s because he really wants to leave.

“But for me, I am more than happy to keep the players.”
