Jose Mourinho signed for Manchester United with a lot of promises to deliver something different than former managers David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. The Portuguese boss claimed that things would be different in his era at Old Trafford. Now, it is time to live up to those expectations. Mourinho has already pointed his fingers at some of the players who he thinks are not good enough to play in his starting eleven and might look to replace them soon.
With a host of talented stars linked with the club, the Red Devils could look to push for quite a few deals this summer, while they will also try to retain some of their stars linked with other clubs.
Here are five players whom the ex Chelsea and Real Madrid manager should sign in order to transform the current United team into a “special team”:
5. John Stones:
A need of the day for United. Chris Smalling has looked really solid at the center of the defensive line and needs a calm and composed partner, who can support him. Though, Daley Blind has looked decent through the course of last season, he has failed to perform in some crucial games. The duo make a good pair, but not good enough for Mourinho’s liking. Stones could leave Everton this summer and United want to sign him, as reports had suggested.
4. Nemanja Matic:
Mourinho not just needs to strengthen the defense, but needs a good defensive midfielder in front of his back-line as well. For this purpose, he could sign Matic. The Serb performed really well under the Portuguese boss in the 2014-15 campaign and was solid as a rock. There were stories some days ago stating that the defensive midfielder was not pleased at Chelsea and could possibly leave, with his former manager looking to reunite with him.
