5 players who could join Manchester United this summer
Jose Mourinho will be looking to spend a huge amount of money getting new players to strengthen his team. In the last two windows, the Portuguese coach has invested in both the midfield and forward, getting Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez on two separate occasions.
The backline currently looks the weakest and most vulnerable to changes. Mourinho will want to ensure he gets the best defenders on his team so that they can challenge their Premier League rivals for the title.
The former Chelsea manager has been known to be a defensive minded manager. He enjoys getting his team to soak up the pressure, stand firmly in their positions and counter-attack only when they have the chance. The current defenders in the team are getting older, and Mourinho has difficulties trusting young ones like Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly.
Here are five transfer targets who could move to join Manchester United next season.
#5 Samuel Umtiti
The Barcelona man is rumoured to be highly likely to be joining the Red Devils in the summer transfer window. Manchester United has targeted the French centre-back for quite a few seasons. In the upcoming transfer window, the Premier League team seems likely to get their hands on him.
Despite the rumours that Umtiti could join Manchester United, Barcelona are determined to tie the 24-year-old down. With a release clause of just 52 million euros for the highly-rated player, Manchester United will go all out to meet the sum.
The centre-back has been recognised as being able to read the game well in advance and is becoming a regular player in the France national team. It will be no surprise if he ultimately decides to join Manchester United after the World Cup.
