As reported in the first part of this article, Mourinho’s sacking is imminent as reports are suggesting the Portuguese manager is one defeat from receiving his matching orders from the club’s board of directors.

Once the former Real Madrid boss is shown the exit door, everyone will be pointing at Zinedine Zidane to become his successor.

However, according to the Daily Mirror, the three-time Champions League winner will add more qualities to his team by signing for players.

We have listed two out of four players, this is the second part of the list.

Thiago Alcantara

The former Barcelona star was a source of transfer speculations during the summer window but he still remains with Bundesliga side Bayern Munich as all the rumours turned out to be false.

The Spaniard hasn’t been given much time on the pitch since he joined the club but Zidane believes so much in his ability and wants him to control play at the middle of the pitch alongside Paul Pogba, should his compatriot remain at Old Trafford amid Barcelona’s interest.

Edison Cavani

Cavani is an experienced striker who currently plays for Ligue 1 Champions Paris St-German.

The Uruguayan star possesses a great goalscoring ability as he had already shown to the world with the French side.

Despite having a huge number of quality attackers in the team, Zidane is desperate to add the player to his attacking front line.
