Jose Mourinho has refused to discuss potential Manchester United signing in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils ended up signing three players in the summer transfer window following the additions of Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United have made a brilliant start to the Premier League season following six victories and two stalemates in eight games so far.

The 20-time English champions are in second place and two points adrift of Manchester City in the top-flight campaign so far.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move to sign Arsenal and Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil in the January transfer window in what would be a sensational swoop.

Manchester United have also been regularly linked with a bid to sign Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann over the past 12 months or so.

However, Mourinho was tight-lipped on the prospect of new signings when the Manchester United manager was quizzed at his media conference on Friday afternoon.

“I don’t want to speak about signings and I don’t want to speak about the market and I don’t want to speak about January,” Mourinho said.

“We are in October, we have November to play, we have December to play, so why should I be speaking about the market when the market is January?”

Manchester United signed Lukaku in a £75m deal from Everton in the summer transfer window to make the Belgian forward the second most-expensive signing at Old Trafford of all-time.
