Three Superstars Manchester United Can Target In The Summer With £250m Available In The Kitty
Manchester United are set to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window at the end of the season as Jose Mourinho is ready to bring some big names to Old Trafford. A few positions in the squad need some strengthening if United are to compete for trophies next season while depth in the squad might also be addressed. And according to reports from The Sun, Jose Mourinho is ready to spend close to £250m this summer to revamp the squad. He spent close to £150m in the previous summer but is yet against lining up some of the biggest names in Europe. But how far can the fans dream? Here are three superstars that Jose Mourinho can spend £250m on.
Neymar Jr (Barcelona)
Though a part of the front three for one of the most successful clubs in recent times, Neymar Jr is still 25 and might be looking for new challenges. Playing alongside Lionel Messi is something that Manchester United cannot replicate and offer but they can surely give him that status at Old Trafford. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the current talisman in the squad, is not going to stay for long, so Neymar, along with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly, can form the core of the team for Mourinho. As exciting as he is, Neymar is contracted with the Camp Nou till 2021. He might cost United a significant of their war chest.
Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich)
The German international, who is surprisingly not in great form this season, would be another exciting addition to Manchester United. Having won the World Cup not so long ago, the 27-year old has been winning the Bundesliga for a long time now and could be up for a challenge in England. He has 8 goals and 15 assists in all competitions this season and is contracted with the German outfit until 2021. However, he is will not cost a big chunk of the total £250m that Mourinho is determined to spend. He is a versatile player and will solve more than one problem at Old Trafford this summer.
Andrea Belotti (Torino)
Everyone wants a piece of a budding superstar who can come good in years to come. But not many have a war chest of £250m to spend. Jose Mourinho is desperate for a star striker and there are very few who are in better form than the Italian youngster in Europe at the moment. The first choice for club and country, Andrea Belotti has 26 goals and 5 assists in all competitions this season and looks tailor made for Jose Mourinho’s style of play. He has a release clause of €100m in his contract that expires in 2021. Mourinho is already looking to break the barrier and might get the 23-year old to the Old Trafford this summer.
