Jose Mourinho gave Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward a 12-man wish list at the start of the summer, according to reports in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils boss drew up an extensive list of 12 players that he would like to strengthen four key areas in the Manchester United team ahead of the 2017-18 season.

The same article states that Mourinho provided Woodward with three options in each of the four positions that the Manchester United boss wants to improve his side’s performances next term.

However, Manchester United have only completed one transfer deal in the summer transfer window so far after Sweden international Victor Lindelof completed a £30.7m deal from Portuguese champions Benfica.

The 20-time English champions are thought to be closing in on a deal to sign Everton star Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window despite the Belgian striker previously being linked with a move to Chelsea.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table but won the EFL Cup and the Europa League last season.
