Tony Gale has urged Jose Mourinho to significantly bolster his Manchester United squad in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils have inevitably been linked with a host of players this month as Mourinho ponders adding to his squad in the mid-season window rather than waiting until the summer.

The Portuguese coach has regularly spoken about his preference to spend big in the summer months rather than in the January transfer window.

But that has not cooled the speculation linking Manchester United with a number of big names this month.

It remains to be seen whether the Red Devils will be able to get any deals across the line this month or not.

But Gale feels that Mourinho has made it clear that he does indeed want to add to his squad significantly this month.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Gale said: “For Mourinho, I think he’s got to get a couple players in, and he’ll want players in because he’s very demanding of his board and his directors.

“He always wants to progress and he gives you that impression that he’s never quite had enough, although they’ve spent a lot of money.

“[But] it’s a really difficult window, January, and it will be interesting to see if they get players in.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their home Premier League clash against Stoke City at Old Trafford on Monday night.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013 and finished in sixth place under Mourinho in his first season in charge last term.
