The Independent claim that the West London club are not only ready to make a £50m move for AS Monaco ace Radmael Falcao but they are also ready to offer the same amount to Juventus for their young midfielder Paul Pogba.
Mourinho will certainly look to address his poor strike-force when the transfer window re-opens and there is growing speculation that Colombian Falcao is not all that happy with life at Ligue 1 big spenders AS Monaco.
The former FC Porto and Atletico Madrid man is said to be unhappy at the lack of atmosphere at home matches at the Stade Louis II as well as the general quality of football he is being exposed to, which would perhaps explain his excellent return of nine goals in 14 matches.
