The Portuguese manager has been one of the busiest managers in the summer in the Premier League and has already considerably improved the quality of the squad from the previous season.
However, the club is still linked with a number of players for a move this summer while some of them are linked with a move away from the club. With plenty happening at the club, let’s take a quick look at the transfer update for the Old Trafford outfit.
Let’s start with the exodus the manager has planned for the squad. The likes of Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, and Juan Mata are already out of favor and may be out of their way this summer. But now, one Bastian Schweinsteiger has added to that list.
Mourinho reportedly is happy for the German captain to leave the club this summer and wants to add some more quality to his midfield. It can be a dangerous move given the amount of experience the 31-year old has under his belt.
Moving on, the club are now linked with a move for Brazil international Fabinho.
The 22-year old has had a promising season at AS Monaco and the United manager sees him as a possible addition to the squad this summer. The club has been a long-term admirer of the youngster who is now reportedly keen on a move to England.
It is reported that the two clubs might proceed with initial talks in the upcoming days.
The never ending saga of Paul Pogba was once again a source of entertainment or frustration for the fans. It was revealed that the talks are now stalled as the player is currently holidaying in the United States.
However, it was also said that the sources close to the club are confident of the deal happening before the end of the summer according to French news outlet L’Equipe.
His price and his history with the club may be the only hindrances in this move but it looks like the French international will be subject to a transfer saga that is becoming inevitable nowadays with star players.
Finally, to save the spiciest to the last, Liverpool star Joe Allen is reportedly on the radar of the Old Trafford outfit.
It has been more than 50 years that a player has moved borders between the Merseyside and Manchester but the lack of midfield options for Mourinho has seen him linked with a move to the Welsh international this summer.
Allen was superb with the Wales side in the EUROs and is unsettled at Anfield. He is scouted by a number of clubs including Swansea and Sevilla but it hard to see him make a move to Untied.
Having played for the Reds there is hardly any chance for him to be accepted at the Theater of Dreams next season.
