Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he wants “two more signings” before the closure of the transfer window.
Mourinho made the remarks in the aftermath of his side’s 4-1 loss to arch rivals Liverpool at Ann Arbor in the International Champions Cup.
“I would like two more players. I don’t think I’m going to have two,” the 55-year-old Portuguese said.
“I think it’s possible I’m going to have one. I gave my club a list of five names a few months ago. I wait to see if it’s possible to have one of these players,” he added.
Over the course of the summer transfer window, the Red Devils have been linked with a number of players.
Some of these include Leicester City’s Harry Maguire in recent weeks and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld, Real Madrid’s French defender and World Cup winner Raphael Varane, Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng, who has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint Germain as well as Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar among others.
United have already signed 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and 19-year-old Diogo Dalot from FC Porto.
In their game against Liverpool, Andreas Pereira’s fine free-kick cancelled out Sadio Mane’s first half penalty but strikes from Daniel Sturridge, Sheyi Ojo and Xherdan Shaqiri’s bicycle kick were enough to secure victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
