The Red Devils are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the off-season give Mourinho the chance to bolster his squad ahead of next season.
Mourinho will be hoping to assemble a squad capable of challenging Manchester City’s dominance at the top of the Premier League table next season.
There have inevitably been suggestions that Manchester United could look to bolster their attacking line-up this summer, despite the Red Devils having signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
However, Mourinho has now insisted that he has no plans to add another striker to his squad because of the number of options available to him in that position.
Speaking at a news conference at Carrington on Friday, Mourinho said: “We have Lukaku and Marcus Rashford as number nines, and of course Marcus can play right and left, but Marcus is a striker.
“Alexis [Sanchez] can play as a striker, [Anthony] Martial can play as a striker, so without having another Lukaku, we have three more players that can play as a nine.
“If we don’t have Lukaku for different reasons, we can change systems and play with two and give more mobility to, for example, Marcus and Martial together, Marcus and Alexis together, so we are not going to go for another number nine.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action next weekend with a crunch clash against champions elect Manchester City at The Etihad.
The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they bid to at least finish as runners-up to Pep Guardiola’s men this season.
