Jose Mourinho has confirmed he wants a fourth signing at Manchester United this summer, but will be happy to move forward without one.
The Portuguese boss has already massively strengthened the spine of his team, signing the likes of Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.
He has also re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and although he won’t be available soon, will be a massive boost in the second half of the season as Man United hope to challenge on different fronts.
Speaking about a new transfer, Mourinho won’t be putting any pressure on his board ahead of transfer deadline day.
“Everyone knows I would like a fourth player and I cannot hide that because I had that in my mind. But I am happy if I am not going to have that and I don’t think I am going to have that,” Mourinho said.
“I was the first to tell my board not to feel any kind of pressure from me in that respect.
“Probably next summer, I will have to try and get a player from a position I think can make us stronger.”
United have started the new season very strong, with nine points out of nine and are yet to concede a single goal as they sit at the top of the table.
Hopes are they can maintain their current form and it’ll be interesting to see if Mourinho lands his fourth signing before the end of the window.
