Man United still using Jose Mourinho for summer signings – report
Man United are still working with recommendations given to them by Jose Mourinho in the transfer market, say reports
Manchester United are embarking on their summer transfer spree still using the advice given to them by former manager Jose Mourinho, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are chasing targets suggested to them by Mourinho despite having sacked the Portuguese coach six months ago.
According to the same story, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is plotting a “major overhaul” of his squad at Old Trafford as he looks to revamp his team ahead of the new campaign.
However, some of the players on Manchester United’s transfer wish-list were scouted because of recommendations from Mourinho, according to the same story.
The article goes on to claim that it was Mourinho who suggested that the Red Devils keep tabs on the likes of Harry Maguire, Issa Diop and Declan Rice.
West Ham have, according to the same story, already rejected an offer of £45m plus Phil Jones for Diop from Manchester United this summer.
The Hammers have reportedly insisted that both Diop and Rice are not for sale this summer, but it remains to be seen whether that will put Manchester United off or not.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season.
