Jose Mourinho is keen on adding a winger to his team, and has his eyes set on Porto star Yacine Brahimi, reports the Daily Mail.

It is understood that Jose is looking to field a 4-3-3 formation at Manchester United next season, and hence, is on the lookout for a solid winger to shower crosses in the middle.

The 27-year-old Algerian has been performing at the top level for over 3 seasons since his arrival at the Estádio do Dragão of Porto, and is particularly known for his dribbling capabilities, good sense of passing, and super footballing vision.

With starlets like Martial and Lingard already available, Jose might still push for the winger due to his bad experience with injuries this season. However, that may result in younger players enduring long spells on the bench, or getting shipped away from Old Trafford altogether.

Manchester United are clearly planning for a shopping spree, and with a proposed revamp of the defense as well as midfield, the Red Devils also look for a proper striker to lead the attack.

Kylian Mbappe, the Monaco starlet who has left Manchester United, along with the rest of the footballing world agape with his striking prowess, might be waiting on for an offer from the Spanish giants Real Madrid instead.

If the player, who had rejected a hefty bid from Manchester United, does move to Real Madrid, he would have to compete for a starting place against fellow French compatriot Karim Benzema.

The youngster has scored 25 goals for the Ligue 1 club already this season, and bagged 8 more assists. Although he is very famous as a full-on striker, earning comparisons to the French legend Thierry Henry, he particularly is a very talented dribbler who successfully finds his path across the defensive line.
