Jose Mourinho wishes to bring in two new players in the January transfer window, report Manchester Evening News.
While the poor business done in the summer transfer window is well in the past, Manchester United continue to face its effects week in week out.
United’s forward line has been struggling to score goals, whereas the backline has been leaking them in far too frequently, which is very uncharacteristic of a Jose Mourinho team.
To resolve these issues, the Portuguese tactician intends to recruit two reinforcements come January – one in each problematic position.

Jose has pursued several defenders since the previous window itself, and at present, three up-and-coming centre-backs are said to be on his radar.
AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli, Inter youngster Milan Škriniar, and Fiorentina starlet Nikola Milenković are all supposedly being monitored by the former Chelsea gaffer, with a move for one of these targets appearing very likely at the start of the new year.
Further, Mourinho also intends to sign a new striker, mainly due to the goal drought being endured by his team’s go-to goal-scorer, Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian international has failed to find the back of the net in the past nine games for the Mancunian outfit, and the death of that goalless streak doesn’t seem to be on the horizon anytime soon either.
