Jose Mourinho has hinted that he is already thinking about which players he would like to bring to Manchester United this summer.

It has been something of a disappointing second season in charge for Mourinho at Old Trafford following his appointment back in May 2016.

The Red Devils have struggled to produce consistent form in all competitions, despite being Manchester City’s closest challengers for the Premier League title this term.

Manchester United slumped to a surprise 1-0 loss to West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday as they handed the Premier League title to Manchester City.

Mourinho’s men will now switch their attentions towards FA Cup affairs and their semi-final clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window gives Mourinho the chance to bolster his squad.

And Red Devils boss Mourinho has hinted that he is already looking ahead to the summer transfer window as he looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next term.

Mourinho told Sky Sports: “Next season, we are going to try to improve, but let’s see what happens.

“Maybe also City will invest massively and they don’t let the others close the gap to them, I don’t know.

“But it is not about us and them, it is about us and them and Liverpool and Arsenal and Chelsea and Spurs. It is not City and United. It is about the six.”

Manchester United won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge last season.
