Jose Mourinho Wants Two More Additions this Summer Transfer Window

Jose Mourinho Wants Two More Additions this Summer Transfer Window

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said on Tuesday they will start the Premier League season at a disadvantage as post-World Cup breaks for his players have left him less time to prepare with his full team than some rival clubs. His form during the tournament was in contrast to his displays for United since his £89.3 million move from Juventus in 2016, which have seen flashes of his talent mixed with stretches of inconsistency.

The same article states that Jose Mourinho is keen to add experienced Germany worldwide Kroos to the Red Devils squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

Mourinho was speaking to the media in Los Angeles before his side's pre-season friendly against AC Milan on Thursday.

José Mourinho has refused to be drawn on whether Manchester United can challenge for the title without further additions to his squad.

"Leicester have been unbelievable to me and I'm really happy there but I'm also an ambitious player and everyone wants to play at the top".

The United boss said he was not fully satisfied on the U.S. tour because he was without several members of his first-team squad, who are on a break following the World Cup.

Mourinho, however, believes the World Cup environment helped Pogba to thrive.

He was solid at the back and a real aerial threat going forward, you can imagine Mourinho getting excited just thinking about Maguire in a red jersey.

Asked directly how many new signings he would like, Mourinho said: "I would get two more players".

"So I think it's the ideal environment for a talented player like him to focus, to fully focus on the job".

"We bought a fantastic player [Diego Dalot]".

Martial has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, especially after his agent spoke out that the French attacker wants to play his football elsewhere.
