Manchester United are ready to splash the cash in this summer transfer period in order to build a strong enough squad capable of mounting a realistic title challenge to Manchester City next season. According to recent reports, United boss Jose Mourinho will be handed a massive £250m transfer kitty following another trophyless season at Old Trafford.
The Special One will be looking to bring in some quality players who can improve his squad significantly ahead of the new season. The pressure will be on Mourinho to deliver some major silverware next season, especially after their local rivals City cruised towards the Premier League this term while their bitter enemies Liverpool also managed to book a place in the UEFA Champions League final which is set to kickoff in Kiev on Saturday.
Let’s take a look at three players that Mourinho can look to bring in during this summer transfer period.
The French centre-back has featured in 43 matches for Real Madrid this season and has two assists to his name. The 24-year-old defender has been a rock at the back for Los Blancos over the last few years and has a lot of experience playing at the top level. At 25, Varane still has his peak years ahead of him which the Red Devils could look to utilise in the coming years. He has the talent to lace up in the United backline and help them challenge for major trophies next year.
The Atletico Madrid midfielder has enjoyed an outstanding campaign and has put in some scintillating performances for the La Liga giants during the course of last season. The 23-year-old midfield enforcer has played in 55 matches for the Madrid-based side and has found the back of the net 6 times while providing 5 assists in all competitions. At 23, the Elche-born talent still has his peak years ahead of him and can be a star in the United midfield for years to come.
