Jose Mourinho has made signing Marco Verratti from Paris Saint-Germain Manchester United’s priority in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on sealing a deal to sign the PSG star this summer as Mourinho looks to bolster his midfield options at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have been linked with a host of players in recent days but the Red Devils are yet to officially confirm any new signings this summer.

The same report says that 25-year-old PSG star Verratti has now emerged as Manchester United’s top transfer target this summer.

The same story says that Manchester United were quoted £100m when they enquired about the Italy international last summer and the Red Devils are likely to have to pay a similar price if they want to land him this time around.

According to the same article, Mourinho is keen to pair Verratti with Fred, who is also thought to be closing in on a move to Old Trafford this summer.

Manchester United are out to significantly bolster their squad this summer as they bid to build a team capable of winning the Premier League title next term.
