Jose Mourinho identifies four key positions to strengthen this summer

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning to extend the summer spending spree following the arrivals of Fred and Diogo Dalot from Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Porto respectively.

Both players were revealed in quick succession earlier this month but Mourinho is still said to be eyeing more recruits in order to close the gap to arch-rivals and Premier League holders Manchester City.

According to M.E.N, Mourinho may bring in as many as six signings during the current transfer window and he is understood to want a new centre-back, left-back, midfielder and forward before the deadline.

Obviously with the new Premier League transfer ruling, the transfer window appears more shorter than usual and any new deal may have to wait until the conclusion of the summer World Cup.

Nevertheless, the Portuguese is said to be eyeing a proven centre-back and left-back during the summer whilst there is the assumption that any midfielder or forward could be used in a rotational policy.

Mourinho was largely criticised for United’s cautious style of play last season and the Portuguese appears keen on sorting out this issue by recruiting top-class defenders who can offer more freedom to the forwards without the regular need to track back.
