Current transfer news right now has reports that Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho is keen on pursuing a new centre-back, left-back and midfielder during the next transfer window.
Mourinho has underscored the need for 3 individual players as he plans to close the gap between his club and arch-rivals Manchester City in the Premier League, The Mirror reports. The Red Devils are expected to pursue a new holding midfielder, considering the retirement of Michael Carrick which should coincide with Marouane Fellaini’s exit on a free transfer.
Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is deemed as the prime option for the club, owing to his impressive all-round play, though he may cost a club-record fee.
There’s also the urge to recruit another centre-back in the ranks, and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis are the prime candidates.
Mourinho also has interest in pursuing another left-sided defender with Ashley Young approaching the twilight of his career.
Danny Rose has been reported as the leading target in the shortlist. The left-sided defender could be available for a significant sum.
