Manchester United have completed the signing of three players so far and that hasn’t gone well with the club’s manager José Mourinho, who has hit back at his employers.
The Portuguese manager is furious with the club’s hierarchy for the inactive role they’ve played in the transfer market so far this summer.
Mourinho revealed to reporters during his post-match conference last night that he submitted a list of five players he would love to have at Old Trafford in the coming weeks but, according to him, none has been brought to the club.
“I gave a list to the club of five names a few months ago and I wait to see if it is possible to have one of these players.” he revealed to newsmen after his 4-1 defeat to Liverpool last night.
With just two weeks left in the transfer window, the former Chelsea manager believes Ed Woodward, who is United’s vice-chairman, won’t be able to get him the players he wanted ahead of the coming season.
Unlike Liverpool and Arsenal who have captured six and five players respectively, the Red Devils have signed just three players, who are reportedly not in Mourinho’s prime targets for the summer window.
Meanwhile, the Portuguese manager admits that his team will be in huge problems at the start of next season as his top players are on vacation after a hectic showing at the world cup in Russia.
Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Victor Lindelof, Marcus Rashford, Ashley Young, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are all out of United’s squad at the start of next season as they won’t be back from their rest.
