Worrying report highlights why Manchester United boss Mourinho is currently not a happy man

Jose Mourinho Ed Woodward

According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is not pleased with the club hierarchy’s penny pinching approach in the summer transfer market.

Manchester United have made a huge impact in the summer transfer window so far by acquiring the services of Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku, and the duo are said to have cost the Red Devils in excess of £100million.

Despite spending so much though, United boss Jose Mourinho is still looking to pull off a couple of big money deals and reports have widely claimed that the Portuguese tactician is currently eyeing moves for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic and Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic.

Both transfers have evidently not yet come into fruition and the reason for this is believed to be due to the fact that United are not willing to match the asking prices of Perisic and Matic, which is allegedly £48million and £40million respectively.

While it is understandable that United do not want to pay over the odds, manager Jose Mourinho is not happy with the club hierarchy’s penny pinching tactics and has made his frustrations known – if reports from the Daily Mirror are to be believed.

Mourinho is also said to be annoyed at missing out on Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier and is now unsure if the club will back him in his bid to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid if the Welshman becomes available this summer.
