Jose Mourinho frustrated with Manchester United’s transfer decisions: report

Manchester United have reportedly frustrated Jose Mourinho due to their limitations in the transfer market that forced his hand in the summer.

Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku were all signed by the Red Devils with Zlatan Ibrahimovic also given a new contract after previously being released by the club.

Matic has settled into United extremely well, often performing at Man of the Match levels of quality since arriving from Stamford Bridge.

Lindelof meanwhile initially struggled to adjust but has seen recent match time increase his value to the squad as he slowly starts to prove his qualities.

Lukaku, despite being heavily criticised has been one of the club’s key players this season, topping the side’s goalscoring charts but Mourinho’s frustrations are with the first name on the list.

According to Manchester Evening News, United’s failures to sign Ivan Perisic still frustrates Jose, particular due to the transfer decisions he had to make.

Apparently the Manchester United board gave Jose Mourinho a budget of £150m and having spent the majority on it on Romelu and Victor, had a sacrifice to make.

With only enough money to sign either Nemanja or Perisic, the Portuguese was forced into bidding for the former, ruing the club’s rigidness in their budget.

Despite the Serbian performing outstandingly, Mourinho is still frustrated with not being able to sign Ivan for the club as well.

United have often looked short of width in their matches this season and with the Inter Milan man representing a traditional winger, could’ve done with his qualities as well as Matic’s solidity in midfield.
