Since Jose Mourinho has taken over at the Manchester United helm, he has gone on to break the world transfer record, as well as spend a total sum around £300 million. But surprisingly, the boss wishes for more support from the club board when it comes to transfers.
Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal, who failed to meet the expectations of the Old Trafford officials, and was thus shown the exit door despite clinching the FA Cup. Nevertheless, the Portuguese’s appointment has only proven to be fruitful for the Red Devils, as he won them the EFL Cup, Community Shield, and the UEFA Europa League in his first season.
On the other hand, the former Real Madrid boss has also managed to pull off some high-profile transfers, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Nemanja Matic, Romelu Lukaku, and their record signing, Paul Pogba. Jose has clearly been busy getting his side back on top of England and Europe’s elite, and has certainly made progress.
However, according to Manchester Evening News, the United tactician still feels he should be offered more backing from the Old Trafford board in the transfer market in order to really set his plans in motion.
The failed attempts at luring Ivan Perisic, Gareth Bale, and Danny Rose have reportedly left Mourinho frustrated, as he reportedly feels his side could’ve been better stabilised had the board been flexible enough to grant him a couple of these transfers.
Furthermore, with the former Chelsea manager reportedly being contacted by Paris Saint-Germain, whom he labelled as ‘special’ recently, over a possible switch, the Mancunian giants now face the risk of losing their mastermind if proper reassurances are not promised.
