Jose Mourinho Wants To More Manchester United Signings

Lukaku finished runner-up for the league's Golden Boot award last campaign with 25 goals and was tipped to return to champions Chelsea but chose to reunite with manager Jose Mourinho on a five-year contract.

But Mourinho admitted during his first news conference of the summer at the club's UCLA training base that he wants two more players.

Matic was left out of the Chelsea squad for their preseason tour of the Far East but Mourinho says he will not talk about the player put of respect for Chelsea.

"We need two more players I would say, at least one, but I don't want to say Matic or any other name because I don't think it's correct". I would not like to be in Ed Woodward's position of negotiation because everything is really hard.

Ivan Perisic is another target, but would not impact the Matic move, with Mourinho still able to spend around £100 million - more than enough to get both players, or should the move for Matic fail, land another holding midfielder. Speaking on United's pre-season tour in the US, Mourinho said "He [Matic] is a Chelsea player and I can't speak about him".

"We're not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof. We need more", he stated.

Mourinho knows Matic well from their time together at Stamford Bridge, something the Portuguese coach hinted had encouraged him to chase Lukaku.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho also commented on the fitness of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but has placed the 35-year-old in the same category as the aforementioned trio. "If he can bring that to the table at Man United it'll be a big help", said Lingard.

The deal came after the Belgium worldwide had seemingly been set for a return to former club Chelsea for much of the transfer window, while Mourinho's men had pursued Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata. It is obvious, it is public and we have not reached an economic agreement.

"But it's Real Madrid's right to ask for their players the amount of money that they want". And we didn't arrive at an agreement with Real Madrid.
