Jose Mourinho has identified the players he wants out of the club in the summer of 2018. This, in turn, will help him bring in a number of key players he believes will bolster his squad and help him fight for titles.

The Portuguese tactician, who won three trophies in his first season at Old Trafford, has a realistic chance of adding to the same by pocketing the FA Cup this term.

The Red Devils are in the semi-finals of the tourney, after having bowed out of the UEFA Champions League, and are also on the verge of finishing second to rivals Man City in the Premier League.
