Jose Mourinho Opens Up On This Summer’s Transfer Window

Last summer was a record-breaking time for Manchester United as the English giants posted astronomical profits despite signing the world’s most expensive player. 

Paul Pogba was joined at Old Trafford by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly in what is commonly regarded as one of the most successful windows for the club since the turn of the century.

This week, Jose Mourinho spoke about his plans for this summer as United look to add the finishing touches to what already looks like a massively talented, if a little disjointed, squad.

“I know the players I want. I know exactly what I want. I know what I want is possible.”

When speaking about any potential incomings, there’s only one name on everyone’s lips, that of Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.

The French attacker is known to be close to compatriot Pogba and has expressed a desire to play with him at club level in the future. It’s also been widely reported that he was a boyhood United fan that idolised David Beckham, hence his long sleeve look and the number 7 on his back.

It’s looking increasingly likely that Diego Simeone will leave the Vicente Calderon at the end of the season with results finally beginning to decline. It’ll be quite a coup if Ed Woodward can steal Atleti’s star man the same summer they see their iconic manager depart.
