Jose Mourinho wants at least two more Manchester United signings in the summer transfer window, reporter Duncan Castles has claimed.

The Red Devils ended up in second spot in the Premier League table last season but finished 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

Manchester United attracted criticism for their negative style of football despite the addition of Alexis Sanchez in January.

Mourinho signed his compatriot Diogo Dalot, 19, in a £17m deal from Portuguese giants FC Porto at the start of the summer transfer window.

Manchester United spent £52m on Brazil international Fred after the playmaker completed a move from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Lee Grant was a surprise addition in a £1.5m deal from relegated Stoke City to add more depth to their options in goal.

Sunday Times reporter Castles believes Mourinho is keen to add two more players to his squad in the current transfer window.

“He wants at least two signings in before the end of the transfer window,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.

“However, he will accept getting one in.”

Manchester United will start the new Premier League campaign with a clash against Leicester City.

The Red Devils won the Europa League and the League Cup in Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
