5 superstars Jose Mourinho is targeting for Manchester United next season
The kind of names that'll bring in more sponsors, more fans, more joy and more money.
It looks increasingly like that Paul Pogba’s world record fee is nothing but a tease of what’s to come and especially from Manchester United. Rumours are flying about the club – and Jose Mourinho – reportedly willing to dump buckets of notes should it attract the world’s top talents.
Their chances of finishing within UEFA Champions League slots this season seems likely but it’s too tough to call but should they win the UEFA Europa League, they’ll directly qualify for Europe’s top competition. And that could help significantly in signing the world’s best players.
So here’s looking at five superstar signings who could join Manchester United this summer: (Obviously not all five)
#1 Neymar Jr
Yup, Manchester United are reportedly willing to activate Neymar’s massive £173 million release clause. The Brazilian is tantalisingly close to achieving god-like status at Camp Nou and yet he might be off to join one of Europe’s most sought-after footballing projects.
The team are in need of someone who can inject that piece of skill, that charisma and that never-lose attitude, Neymar is all of those things and still at an age where he can grow into becoming one of the greatest football players of all time.
And especially under someone like Jose Mourinho, the chances of him doing so are exceptionally high. With Luis Enrique set to leave the club in the summer and Barcelona feeling the strain of an ageing squad, Neymar would do well to assess his options before he gives in to the Catalan way.
Chance of joining Manchester United: 4/10
