The Portuguese boss has already told the press that he has identified his targets for the summer window, providing Ed Woodward with the names he needs to strengthen the squad.
He gave Varane his Real Madrid debut during his time in charge at the Bernabeu, whilst Kroos is said to be unsettled in Spain, with many clubs interested in his services.
The likes of Antoine Griezmann and Harry Kane have also been heavily linked with an Old Trafford move as Mourinho looks to bolster his options.
He signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly during his first transfer window at the club without Champions League football to offer, and there’s no doubt he has the ability to attract big names.
If Mourinho sets his sights on a player, there’s a good chance we’ll see them in a United shirt, as the days of waiting until deadline day for a last minute panic buy are behind us.
He’s capable of filling gaps in a squad and has planned for his signings, with players he wants to sign already playing on his mind.
