Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to make five summer signings to improve his squad ahead of the 2018-19 Premier League season, according to a report in England.

The Times, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that Mourinho has his sights set on making five new additions to his squad following their second-placed finish.

The same article states that the Red Devils want to sign Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld and FC Porto full-back Diogo Dalot.

According to the same story, Manchester United will have a cough up £120m to recruit Fred, Alderweireld and Dalot in the current transfer window.

However, Mourinho doesn’t want Manchester United’s spending to end there as the Portuguese head coach eyes a left-back and a centre-half.

Manchester United are set to sell Italian defender Matteo Darmian and versatile Dutch star Daley Blind.

England international Luke Shaw has been linked with an exit at Manchester United following a difficult spell under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils could also lose Anthony Martial this summer after the France international found himself out of favour under Mourinho this term.

Manchester United lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month.
