Mourinho: United need two more signings

During their U.S. pre-season tour, Jose Mourinho has significantly hinted that Zlatan will re-sign on at Manchester United when he is fit again.

It's claimed that £35m of that will go on Inter winger Ivan Perisic who has always been linked with a move to Old Trafford, while another defender and a defensive midfielder are also on his radar.

Zlatan suffered a nasty knee injury during a Europa League match against Anderlecht back in April that effectively ended his season and his progress at the club. I would not like to be in Ed Woodward's position in negotiations because it's really hard.

Nemanja Matic vies with Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini, but could they be playing together next season?

The Manchester United boss added: "We open our door for him to recover with us, and at the same time let's make a decision that makes us all happy".

'I think after the champions, Chelsea, I think Manchester United is the second most successful club last season and Arsenal the third.

"So maybe we don't get two, we get one, but we need one more to give us more options".

"I think it comes in the right moment of his career because he is still a young player but he has years of experience in the Premier League, also with the Belgium National team". Mourinho was talking to the press in Los Angeles, where he revealed that the Red Devils failed to agree a deal for Morata before they shifted their focus onto getting Lukaku. "We wanted four - 50% of the job is done". They may find tougher competition for Matic in Juventus, however, since the Serie A winners can put forward a persuasive case to join.

It remains to be seen who Mourinho lands to bolster his squad, but it's clear that he has the reigns to now build a squad capable of winning major trophies next season. I've played with a few lads at club level and global level and there is also some young lads.

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player", he said. And we didn't arrive at an agreement with Real Madrid.
