Manchester United were linked with a big-money move for Atletico Madrid attacking midfielder in one of the rumours that made headlines yesterday.
The Red Devils have been linked with another player today as Argentine media outlet Ole are claiming that Mourinho is ready to reignite his interest in Argentina striker Mauro Icardi in January.
The Portuguese manager first made an offer for the 29-goal hero in the previous winter market but his bid was declined by the Serie A giants.
Having seen his bid for the decent striker rejected by Inter Milan, Mourinho reportedly turned his attention to Lewandowski, Leon Bailey and Willian during the summer window but was unable to get any of his three targets.
Despite spending big on Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in the two previous transfer markets, the former Real Madrid manager is keen on improving his frontline as soon as the transaction period begins in January.
Ole further reveals that United might need to release £89m for Mauro Icardi if they must stand a chance of convincing the Nerazzurri to sell one of their influential strikers in January.
Icardi, 25, is no doubt one of the best strikers in the world and he would surely add class and threat to Mourinho’s attack in the second half of the season.
