Jose Mourinho remained coy when quizzed about whether Manchester United could make a summer transfer swoop to sign an experienced striker.

The Red Devils have been widely criticised for their lack of a clinical edge in front of goal this season – especially in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish striker has come to the rescue on multiple occasions for Manchester United this season, with the 35-year-old having scored 27 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils this term.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Manchester United with a host of player in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window draws ever nearer.

And Mourinho gave little away when asked directly if he plans to sign an experienced striker this summer.

Asked if he plans to sign a forward, Mourinho told a news conference on Friday at Carrington: “Maybe. We believe in Marcus Rashford, no doubt.”
