Jose Mourinho has certainly not been shy since arriving at Manchester United.
The former Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid coach has added Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to his Manchester United squad and something tells us he’s not finished just yet.
Mourinho has made public his desire for the club to sign at least four big players, and with three of those individuals presumably at Old Trafford in the shape of his new acquisitions, all roads lead to Paul Pogba.
Many have questioned why exactly the club would want to pay £100m for the Frenchman, who performed dismally as France lost to Portugal in the Euro 2016 final last night.
The BBC’s report that there had been no negotiations between Manchester United and Juventus coupled with news from Pogba’s agent that Juventus have offered the midfielder a new deal has stalled any potential transfer.
Regardless, Mourinho still fully expects ‘everything’ from his current crop of players and was not afraid to let them know as such in an interview with Adidas.
“I’m not humble when I talk about targets, I’m quite aggressive on that,”
“I want everything and everything is to win matches, play well, score goals, don’t concede goals… everything. I want everything.
“I know that we are speaking about a hypothetical situation which is very difficult to reach but I want everything.”
Mourinho has also called on the fans to play their part ahead of the new season.
“I understand that they expect a lot from me but I also expect a lot from them,” he said. “There is no chance we will be happy if we are not together and I think the passion they have for this club is really amazing.
“It’s a new chapter in the club’s life. Always when you change a manager, I feel it is a sad moment but it is a new chapter now.
We can expect United to challenge for the top four this season thanks to the addition of some truly wonderful talent.
