Mourinho : “I want to sign two more players”

By Ayomide Osipeju

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reiterated that he wants to make further improvements to his squad this summer, but admitted that he is unsure on the club’s progress in bringing in new faces sportmole reports.

Manchester United have already brought in Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku totalling £100m, but their other quest to sin the likes of Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier and Ivan Perisic have proven to be a brick wall.

Mourinho has said he wants a new midfielder and wenger in his squad, but he also insists that he is happy with the squad he currently has at his disposal should that not prove possible.

“I don’t know [what progress has been made]. Honestly, I don’t know. Ed [Woodward] is in control. He did Lindelof and Lukaku, he knows that I would like two more players, but he also knows that I have balance. I understand the situation, I understand the market and if my club is not able to do two players and do just one, I will accept that as a consequence of the market now,” he told reporters.

“Our relation is good and I just wait for good news – and he knows that for me good news is to have the players, or in this case maybe just the player as soon as possible because to work together with the team is really, really important. But I’m calm. I like my players, I like my squad, I trust them, so I’m calm and that’s important.

“I’m happy with my squad, but I would like to have two more players – I never hide that. One player would be a midfield player that gives me more options, more balance to the team, our needs.

“Another one, an attacking player, especially that can play through the wings to give me also more attacking options. But I never speak about players that belong to other teams. I don’t like if any manager comes now and says that he would say he would like one of my players. That’s not ethical, that’s not correct.”
