Jose Mourinho wants to bring Nemanja Matic to Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils boss is keen to be reunited with Matic after coaching the Serbian midfielder during his time in charge at Chelsea.

The same story states that Mourinho is determined to sign a “dominant” holding midfielder this summer as he looks to prepare his team for his second season in charge at Old Trafford.

The report also states that Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier is also one of Manchester United’s top targets this summer, but the Red Devils are less optimistic of being able to bring the England star to Old Trafford.

Mourinho is said to be after a holding midfielder to bring out the best of Paul Pogba at Manchester United and step into the void left by veteran star Michael Carrick.
