United may have only signed England global left-back Luke Shaw from Southampton in 2014, but with doubts now over his future at Old Trafford, it appears as though United manager Jose Mourinho is after a new left-sided full-back.
"I think they need to sign four or five players".
Reported Manchester United target Ederson looks set to slip out of Jose Mourinho's grasp, with The Guardian stating that the Benfica goalkeeper is set for a £34.9 million move to rivals Manchester City. Martial, who single-handedly saved United's season previous year was seen warming the bench or playing out of position. "Ask Ed Woodward. He knows since March who I want, what I want and how much I want", Mourinho told Sky Sports in Monaco, where he will be watching Sunday's Formula One race.
"Now is for him to work because he will have holidays in August and in August I'll be working".
"Inter director Piero Ausilio has confirmed the approach from United, telling Italian TV channel Premium Sport: "[United] haven't made us an official offer for Perisic but their interest is there".
Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have all been dressed down for poor displays or an apparent lack of fight. Mourinho needs to go into the market for natural wing players instead and play either Mata or Mikhitaryan in that central attacking role.
He helped United win the Europa League with many suggesting that he should be the next captain if Wayne Rooney leaves the club.
'Here is who he definitely wants; Griezmann and Lukaku. He struggled with consistency in the Premiere League but showed his moments of brilliance at times this season-mostly in the Europa League.
Inter Milan are interested in signing Matteo Darmian but Mourinho is a fan of the Italian's versatility across the back four.
There is nearly no chance of Mourinho selling Jones, so that leaves a big question mark over the future of Smalling.
