Recently linked with Chelsea by Calciomercato, talented young attacker Marco Asensio is also a player listed by Diario Gol as being on Mourinho’s agenda.
Don Balon have also claimed Liverpool have been in for Asensio with a big-money bid, so United may struggle to get this in-demand starlet as part of the De Gea deal.
A superb ball-player and experienced winner, Toni Kroos is another name on Mourinho’s list who makes perfect sense for United’s needs right now.
The Germany international could be ideal to replace Michael Carrick as he prepares to retire in the summer, and could also be the player to get the best out of Paul Pogba after his recent dip in form.
Finally, Diario Gol also claim United could be keen on Brazilian defensive midfielder Casemiro, who has become a hugely important part of this Madrid side.
The 25-year-old seems the perfect fit for United and looks a real Mourinho player, and his presence could also be useful as the Red Devils prepare to lose Carrick and also face the potential departure of contract rebel Marouane Fellaini, who will be a free agent in the summer if he does not sign a new deal before then.
