Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly locked in a transfer stand-off with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and latest reports claim both will have an emergency meeting later today to make a final decision.

United have had a successful summer in the transfer market signing Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Mourinho has previously spoken of his preference of having a squad of 20 outfield players plus three goalkeepers.

And a clear-out is already underway with Paddy McNair and Donald Love joining Sunderland permanently, Adnan Januzaj also moving to the Stadium of Light on loan and Guillermo Varela’s season-long loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt.

James Wilson and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson have joined Derby and Wolves on loan respectively while Tyler Blackett joined Reading on a three-year deal yesterday.

Bastian Schweinsteiger, Andreas Pereira, Will Keane are all expected to depart either on loan or permanently before the end of the transfer window.

United are also said to be open to offers for defenders Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo, who rejected a move to the Chinese Super League.

And according to The Sun, Woodward is insisting on moving players out of the club before Mourinho can make any more deals, chiefly the signing of Southampton’s Jose Fonte.

The report says United are lining up a £12million bid for the Saints captain and are also interested in Monaco full-back Fabinho.
