Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is reportedly ready to bring in two marquee signings to keep Jose Mourinho happy in next summer’s transfer window.
The Red Devils boss has recently been quoted as saying he’s not been given enough to spend at Old Trafford, and the Daily Mail claim the club are not entirely happy with his comments.
However, the report also adds that United do appear ready to add a couple more big names to help bridge the gap between themselves and Manchester City next season.
This year’s title already looks out of reach after Pep Guardiola’s men opened up a 15-point lead at the top of the table, but it may not take too much more investment from United to give them a better chance next term.
No specific names are mentioned by the Mail, but a host of elite stars have been linked with the club in recent times.
Earlier this season, the Sun claimed talks had been held over signing both Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale, while another report from the Sun suggested they could spend big on signing Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
United have brought in big names like Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku in recent transfer windows and it’s easy to imagine Woodward could have similar big names up his sleeve again for next summer.
