As the January transfer window draws nearer news regarding players moving from one club to another are on the increase and as always many football stars have been linked with Premier League giants Manchester United.
The 20-time English league champions are at the moment a long way off Manchester City in the title race even though they currently occupy the second position. This has seen rumours of players joining the famous circulating in the press.
Now according to fresh reports, Man United manager Jose Mourinho is keen on signing two players in the upcoming transfer window. It is understood that the Portuguese manager wants a central midfield player as well as a winger.
It is also reported that Mourinho is very keen on signing Bordeaux winger, Malcolm, as he sees the Brazilian as the ‘missing piece’ in his man, united attack that has appeared disjointed at times this season.
Malcolm, 20, has been in superb form for the French outfit this season, scoring 7 goals in 18 appearances for the club so far this season.
Manchester United would still look to have a marquee signing in the attack in the summer to ease the pressure on Malcolm (if he signs) as well as Romelu Lukaku who is the club’s top scorer this season with 15 goals.
Antoinne Griezmann, Gareth Bale and Mesut Ozil have all been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer.
Central midfield provides a much bigger challenge for Mourinho as the main target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has all but ruled out a move away from Lazio in the midseason window, with any hope for a deal pushed until the summer window.
