Jose Mourinho lifts lid on Man United summer transfer plans

Jose Mourinho reveals that he has already thought about his transfer targets for Manchester United this summer

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he has already thought about which players he would like to bring to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have not made any signings in the January window despite plenty of speculation linking the Premier League’s top clubs with a host of players.

Mourinho will be hoping to further bolster his squad in the summer transfer window as he bids to enjoy a successful second season at Old Trafford.

And although the Portuguese coach confirmed that he already has some players in mind for the summer, the former Chelsea boss stopped short of going into any detail about any potential targets.

Asked if had thought about the forthcoming summer transfer window, Mourinho told a news conference at Carrington on Tuesday: “I know what I want. I always think every week. The more I know my players, the more I know my team… the competition is in permanent evolution and it [my team] needs also a permanent evolution.

“I know what I want, yes. But the market closed today so there is no point to be speaking about the next transfer window.”
