Jose Mourinho has frankly admitted that he isn’t sure whether Manchester United will make any new signings in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils have endured something of a stuttering start to the new campaign and that has caused Mourinho to find himself under pressure in the Old Trafford hot-seat.

Manchester United are well off the pace in the race for the Premier League title and it looks as though they will have to fight to secure a top-four finish this season.

Their stuttering form is inevitably likely to prompt plenty of speculation linking Manchester United to a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws nearer.

It remains to be seen whether the Red Devils will actually be able to bolster their squad next month.

Now, Mourinho himself has openly admitted that he would like to bring in some reinforcements in the new year, but he concedes that he is not sure whether Manchester United will be able to or not.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Guardian, Mourinho said: “I don’t know if we are going to have new players – I would like to – but I don’t know if it is possible or not. It depends on the club.

“Honestly, I’m focused on my job of next week playing Cardiff, and I’m more focused on that.”

Next up for Manchester United is a trip to Cardiff City next Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League and without a trophy last term.
