Manchester United manager has been credited with a move for West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic in the summer.
It was one of the most surprising speculations that broke out in the early hours of today via Sky Sport reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
The Red Devils currently possess a rich attacking frontline and the Portuguese manager has earlier revealed during last transfer window that he won’t be moving for any attack-minded player in the summer.
Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford both failed to get regular game-time at Old Trafford during the recently concluded season due to huge competition for a place at the team’s final third of the pitch.
Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku were on fire for the team last season, while Alexis Sanchez blew hot and cold in his first season at Old Trafford.
Mourinho is reportedly set to rescind his decision as he is reportedly considering making a shock move for the Austrian international, who was awesome with the Hammers last season.
He scored 11 goals, and assisted six goals in just 31 matches last season and that has made Mourinho developed an interest in him.
According to Solhekol via his verified Twitter account, the £50m-rated striker is being tracked by Mourinho as the manager hopes to add more firepower to his team’s attacking threat ahead of next season.
However, United must get rid of fringe players, including Martial or Rashford, in the summer so as to create space for the Austrian international.
