Man United scouts urging Jose Mourinho to sign 24-year-old – report
Manchester United's scouts want to sign Croatia and Eintracht Frankfurt forward Ante Rebic, according to a report
Jose Mourinho has been urged by Manchester United’s scouts to sign Croatia international Ante Rebic from Eintracht Frankfurt this summer, according to a report in England.
The Sunday Times is reporting that Mourinho is eager to sign a left winger but Manchester United have struggled to get deals for Gareth Bale and Willian over the line.
The same article states that Manchester United’s scouts have identified Rebic as a potential cheaper alternative for the 20-time English champions with deadline day looming.
Manchester United have endured a frustrating transfer window so far after flirting with Real Madrid star Bale but ultimately being left frustrated in pursuit of the Welshman.
The Red Devils were thought to be keen to sign Willian from Chelsea FC to reunite with the Brazilian winger after the pair won the Premier League and the League Cup.
Mourinho has added Brazil international Fred in a £52m deal from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakthar Donetsk to improve their options in the middle of the park.
The Red Devils have also signed Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot in a £17m deal from FC Porto and the rather uninspiring of Stoke City shot stopper Lee Grant in a £1.5m deal.
