Supporters have grown increasingly irate with the lack of activity from their club and Mourinho, speaking after the 0-0 draw with San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday, was far from optimistic over any new signings arriving at the club.
According to M.E.N‘s Samuel Luckhurst, Mourinho wants Ed Woodward to wrap up transfers for another central defender and a winger before the window closes in 18 days.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld has been a target for some time but United are reluctant to meet the defender’s hefty valuation following an impressive World Cup.
Both Gareth Bale and Willian are players Mourinho admires and views capable of adding an extra dimension to the club’s attack for the 2018/19 season. The Welshman, however, is set to stay at Real Madrid and Willian’s most likely next destination will be Barcelona.
As things stand, United are miles away from where they need to be on August 10.
