With Jose Mourinho’s switch to Paris Saint-Germain very much looking like a possibility now, there seems to be one condition that could manage to tie his future down at Old Trafford.
Whilst many recent reports claimed the Portuguese wishes for better backing from the club’s board in the transfer market, latest reports from Don Balon have revealed that the gaffer has set the demand of importing four high-profile stars to the squad should he be convinced to stay.
They further reported that Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil is one of the key players Mourinho desires to see at his club, alongside a striker, a centre-back, and a left-back.
Though new arrival Romelu Lukaku, who was an alternative born from the failed transfer of Antoine Griezmann, set off to a great start to the campaign with 10 goals and 3 assists, he has met a dead end with a seven-game goal drought.
And despite Zlatan Ibrahimovic being set to make a return from his long-term injury soon, the former Chelsea boss wants to add another striker to his ranks.
On the other hand, contrasting from their frontline, United sport a rather mediocre defense, where the left flank has constantly proved to be fault-zone. Victor Lindelof is yet to justify his £30 million price tag, all the while Chris Smalling hardly seems reliable for the long run.
However, the Red Devils are reportedly still interested in securing the services of Tottenham Hotspur man Danny Rose as one of the solutions to their left-back problems.
Nevertheless, there have hardly been any other names linked with the Mancunian giants that fit this category except Ozil, Rose, and Griezmann.
And with the United tactician teasing a move to the French capital, the club higher-ups would probably want to make sure they meet his demands of signing these stars.
