Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he needs two more signings to make the Red Devils squad more formidable, reports Skysports.
The Portuguese tactician was displeased at the state of United squad last summer, and to reinforce his squad, the Special One shattered the transfer record of the World to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly also joined.
Despite spending overboards, Man United struggled in the League but used an outside chance of the Europa League to secure Champions League qualification – this has left Mourinho scrapping for new signings.
Man United signed Victor Lindelof from Benfica in a £40million deal as their first summer signing and then usurped Chelsea to the signature of Romelu Lukaku in a world record deal believe to be around £90million plus add-ons.
However, Jose Mourinho is yet itching to spend as he looks to push for the Premier and Champions League.
“We don’t have our door closed. We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof. We need more.
“We wanted four, so I could say 50 percent of the job is done, but I won’t say that because it’s so difficult. I wouldn’t like to be in Ed Woodward’s position, negotiating, because everything is really difficult. Mourinho said while on pre-season tour in the USA.
The Old Trafford Landlords are linked with a move for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic but the San Siro giants still want the Croatian to lace his boots for them next season. United have seen bids for the player rebuffed and GFN understands that the player wants the move.
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic have also been heavily linked with a move but the Blues would prefer to sell the player to a Club abroad.
United must bolster their midfield given the departure of Wayne Rooney.
