Mourinho intends to win the league next season, and believes the addition of at least four players will help him get closer to the goal. According to report, the four players Jose has targeted are Danny Rose, Willian, Fred, and Raphael Varane.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Rose is a chief prospect to be the club’s new number one left-back, as the manager is dissatisfied with Luke Shaw, who is expected to leave. Rose would take over from makeshift full-back Ashley Young, whose one year extension was triggered by the club on Monday.
Chelsea’s Willian has been a chief target since last summer, but the Blues are not willing to let him go. He has been tremendous for the London giants, and they believe he will snub Mourinho’s advancements with, reports stating that a 60m valuation is fine with the Manchester club.
Shakhtar Donetsk’s Fred, who is rumoured to be joining City, is also on Jose’s list. The midfielder is linked with the Red Devils in a view to add more solidity in midfield, and allow Paul Pogba to thrive more.
Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane has been a long term target for the Mancunian giants, and Jose wants the defender to partner Eric Bailly, but this deal also remains highly unlikely.
