Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he wants to add “more quality” to his Manchester United squad in the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese coach watched his side take an impressive step towards a top-four finish in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.

That win left Manchester United in fifth place in the table but Mourinho’s men know that they will move level on points with third-placed Liverpool if they win their two games in hand over the Reds.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Manchester United with a host of players in the lead-up to the summer transfer window.

And although Mourinho admits that he is delighted with the character of his current squad, he admits that he needs to make some quality additions ahead of next season.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by Metro: “We need more quality, but in terms of character and the human side I have one of the best groups ever.”
