Man United want to sign player in this position before transfer deadline – report
Jose Mourinho wants to bring a new defender to Manchester United this summer, according to reports
Jose Mourinho wants to bring a new defender to Manchester United before the close of the summer transfer window if possible, according to reports in the British media.
The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils boss is keen to bring in a new defender – preferably a left-back – before the deadline at the end of the month.
The same report states that Manchester United hold an interest in signing Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose, although a move for him is more likely to come next summer.
The story also says that Manchester United are open to making a move to sign Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Manchester United have been linked with a host of players so far this summer but the Red Devils have so far only concluded deals to land Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic so far.
The Red Devils are currently preparing for their Premier League opener against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as they look to kick their season off with three points.
Manchester United were beaten 2-1 by Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup on Tuesday night as they missed their first chance to win a trophy this season.
