Jose Mourinho is ready to raid Premier League rivals for a winger and a defender to add to his squad for the next season.

Manchester United have been one of the consistent teams in the Premier League this season but they will have to improve on their options in the squad if they are to compete for the Premier League title next season.

The manager has already started looking for possible additions in the summer and has been linked with some of the biggest names in the sport. And two names that are now doing the rounds are Chelsea’s Brazilian winger Willian and Tottenham Hotspur’s Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld.

The former Real Madrid manager has been looking to import some quality stars from Europe but is also having an eye on players experienced in the Premier League.

Though he spent on Eric Bailly to improve on his backline last summer, Mourinho is not impressed with his center back options and is desperate to add another defender to his lineup.

And Alderweireld, who has been solid for the Spurs for more than a season now, is high up the wish list.

Mourinho has also been looking at attacking additions and though the talks of Antoine Griezmann have cooled off, he is looking at some star names and Chelsea’s Willian is now on his radar.

The Brazilian has fallen out of favor under Conte who has preferred Pedro over him and with just 13 appearances to his name, Willian might be tempted for a reunion with Jose at Old Trafford.

Neither player will be available on the cheap, especially as they are regulars in the first team players at their current clubs but it is reported that Mourinho is desperate for both of them and is ready to splash the cash in the summer.

Do you think Manchester United can land either of the players this summer?
