Jose Mourinho has admitted that Manchester United are keen to add two more players to his squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Red Devils have endured a relatively frustrating summer transfer window so far following the addition of three new players this summer.

Manchester United spent £52m on Brazil international Fred from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this summer.

The Red Devils have also signed Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot in a £17m deal from FC Porto to improve their options at full-back.

Veteran English goalkeeper Lee Grant completed a surprise £1.5m deal to Manchester United from Stoke City.

Manchester United are thought to be keen on a new centre-half after being linked with Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina in recent weeks.

The Red Devils boss is rumoured to be keen on adding a winger to the Manchester United team amid reported interest in Ivan Perisic and Willian.

Asked during an interview with ESPN if Manchester United will make any further signings this summer, Mourinho said:

“One thing is what I would like. Another thing is what is going to happen.”

Mourinho added: “I would get two more players.”

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League in the 2018-19 season.
