Jose Mourinho Eyes League 1 Duo To Bolster Midfield This Summer

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is in a tight situation at the moment as he has a growing injury list to match the busy fixture schedule that his side has in the remainder of the season.

But he is also having an eye on the next season and is looking at some big names to his squad to help them compete at the highest level next season.

There are a few positions that Mourinho will target this summer and the midfield is something that he is keeping a strong eye on.

The likes of Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick may be playing in their last season at the club and the manager is looking to bring more than one addition to the midfield to help him cope with all four competitions next season.

According to reports from the Express, Mourinho is now looking to add PSG’s Blaise Matuidi and AS Monaco’s Bernardo Silva to his squad as a part of the complete overhaul at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

The Red Devils have a decent chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season through the league and also through the Europa League but the number of injuries to his squad might now see the manager concentrate on only one of the two competitions.

But he will be hoping to avoid such a situation next season and wants to spend big on more than one player to solve this problem.

The PSG man has been one of the most effective players in his position and is offered a new contract at the French club.

But the report suggests that he is ready to listen to offers from Manchester United where he can team up with French team-mate Paul Pogba in the midfield.

He will cost Manchester United around £30m in the summer.

The 22-year old Monaco star is having a stellar season in France where he has helped the French giants a place in the semi-final of this season’s Champions League.

He is one of the most wanted players in the Premier League this summer and Mourinho is determined to land him this summer. At his age, he will come with a hefty price at around £50m.

Fellaini’s recent sending off against Manchester City has convinced Mourinho that he needs extra support to his midfield next season and is ready to splash the cash.

But do you think Matuidi and Bernardo Silva are the right options for Manchester United this summer?
