Jose Mourinho has said that he is now ‘confident’ that Manchester United will sign one new player this summer.
The Manchester United manager has cut a frustrated figure this summer, seemingly whinging about anything and everything, whether it be injuries, a lack of players or a lack of signings, he has not looked happy.
He recently told the world that he was looking to bring in two new faces before the Premier League’s transfer deadline on August 9, and despite his previous frustrations, he has now said he is ‘confident’ he will get at least one of his targets.
“I am confident I will get one, but I think two I am not going to get – which is not a drama,” Mourinho told beIN Sports.
“In every pre-season it happens the same, with every club, which is that the manager wants more.
“It’s our nature, you always want more for your team, but then club decisions are different and normally you don’t get what you want, which happened during all my career.
“So, if I get one player until the end of the market, that’s fine.”
United have been linked with Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld in recent weeks, although recent speculation has suggested that Barcelona’s Yerry Mina could be the man to arrive.
Mourinho also want to sign a right winger, with Gareth Bale and Willian rumoured to be targets, but this could be the position that Mourinho misses out on once again, having failed to land Ivan Perisic last summer.
