Ian Wright has warned Jose Mourinho that Manchester United are fast turning into Arsenal.

The Portuguese head coach took over the reins from Louis van Gaal in May 2016 following their three-season title drought.

Mourinho has signed 11 players during his three summer transfer windows at the Old Trafford outfit.

However, some of Mourinho’s Manchester United additions have failed to settle at Old Trafford and live up to their billing.

Manchester United won the Europa League and the League Cup in Mourinho’s first season in charge.

The 20-time English champions finished his second season without silverware after the Red Devils lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC at Wembley in the FA Cup final.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City at Old Trafford to make a positive if unspectacular start to the season.

The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion at Amex Stadium to heap pressure on Mourinho.

Former Gunners striker Wright believes Manchester United are fast turning into Arsenal under Mourinho.

“People were watching Arsenal because it was car-crash football. United are fast turning into the same,” Wright told The Sun.

“You can’t say there has been no progress under Jose, because there has. They’ve won a Europa League and League Cup, and last term finished second in the table.

“But that’s been to the detriment of the sort of football which has long been their mantra.”

Manchester United signed Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013.
