Jose Mourinho has an additional £40m to spend in the summer transfer window after Marouane Fellaini committed his future to Manchester United, according to a report in the local media.

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that the Red Devils boss is set to have extra funds to spend in the summer transfer window to revamp his squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

The same article states suggests that Lazio and Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is no longer required to bolster Mourinho’s squad following Felaini’s new two-year contract at Old Trafford.

According to the same story, Manchester United are still monitoring a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld and Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet to improve their defensive options.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League after the round of 16 exit last term.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last season following Eden Hazard’s winner from the penalty spot.

Manchester United signed Brazil international Fred in a £52m deal from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer transfer window.
