Jose Mourinho is being fully backed by Manchester United for a radical overhaul of his squad, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Red Devils could be set to make a number of new signings and ship out a host of players this summer as Mourinho looks to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

The same story says that the Portuguese coach has the full backing of the Manchester United board to do so – even if it means selling club-record signing Paul Pogba this summer.

Manchester United have come up short in the Premier League title race once again this season and the Red Devils will be looking to challenge for the title in Mourinho’s third season in charge next term.

The Manchester United board are reportedly demanding that the Red Devils mount a serious title challenge next season as they look to try and lift the trophy for the first time since 2013.

According to the same story, the likes of Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind are all up for sale this summer as Manchester United look to significantly revamp their squad.

Manchester United are currently preparing for their FA Cup semi-final clash against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday.
