Jose Mourinho to receive £100m from Manchester United for January transfer window

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will receive a £100m from the club to spend on two top transfer targets in the January transfer market.

The former Chelsea boss has taken several digs at the club’s hierarchy after the Man United chairman Ed Woodward failed to sign one of his two top targets.

Jose Mourinho was strongly linked with a move to sign at least one central defender and a right-winger but the club’s CEO was unable to strike a deal.

Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng and Leonardo Bonucci were all linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams but United couldn’t bite any before the transfer window shuts down.

Ahead of the January transfer market, Jose Mourinho is still thinking on signing a new central defender after he sees his side conceded 17 goals in just ten appearances in the league this summer so far.

Inter’s Milan Skriniar and Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic, scouted by the United boss during the recent international break, are emerging as potential January targets and Mourinho, according to the Guardian, will be handed the funds to ensure he is not left empty-handed in January.

Jose Mourinho may still consider signing Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan as Alexis Sanchez has failed to reach his full potential at Old Trafford.
