Mourinho could correct the setbacks United are having should he sign the right attackers this season.
The manager has come under criticisms after falling out in the race for the Premier League title.
It is understood United’s hierarchy will back Mourinho when he go out shopping for players in his wishlist in January.
And primary target and PSV star Hirving Lozano could be snapped up when the window opens in January.
Lozano is reportedly valued at 40-50 million euros and is contracted at the Dutch outfit until 2023.
Back in July, it was mooted the Red Devils had registered their interests in the Mexican. Now, reports floating about say United want to lure him away from the Eredevisie.
United are reportedly closer to sealing his move away from the outfit, but they must be ready to splurge cash on the prolific forward.
Lozano was fantastic for PSV last season, bagging 17 goals and 11 assists in 29 league games for the club.
Lozano has racked up 4 goals in this new campaign and PSV fears they could lose him for a cheap given his release clause is just 60 million euros.
José Mourinho is also eyeing Juventus star Pablo Dybala who is rumoured to be unsettled at the moment.
Ronaldo joined the Old Lady this summer which puts the Argentine forward in a tough position.
