Seeming desperate to strengthen up his team for both domestic and European competitions next season, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, is keen on extending their chances of signing Shaktar Donetsk midfielder, Fred.
According to reports, the Red Devils are forcing out a move on the Brazilian to land him at the Old Trafford before the beginning of the 2018/19 campaign. With Premier League Champions Manchester City reported to have dropped out of the race sign the 25-year-old, which will be giving the Reds the higher possibility to sign him next season.
Mourinho has revealed his frustrations in the midfield of his team, growing in desperation to add two more midfielders to his squad, and Fred is not the only midfielder linked with the Reds, as Borussia Dortmund stars Christian Pulisic and Julian Weigl and Napoli’s Jorgiho also being linked with a move to Old Traffrod next season.
Being stuck with his defensive tactics, Mourinho is already in the lookout for a new right-back and left back next summer, according to reports from the Guardian.
And Manchester United has been keeping tabs on the Tottenham Hotspur‘s Danny Rose for a while as a potential replacement for Luke Shaw, with some rumours claiming that a swap deal could happen with both teams for their respective player. With Shaw currently running out on the final year on his contract with the Red devils.
Report have it that the Blues wants to give them another shot at the Stamford Bridge following the horrible lessons learnt from former players “Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah and Romelu Lukaku” and will be giving them another chance with the Blues.
Both players has already been linked with a move away from the club, with Morata being linked to Serie A giants Juventus, while Bakayoko is being linked back to former club AS Monaco.
A sum of £60 million was reported to have been paid to bring in Morata from Real Madrid, and Bakayoko was £40 million from the Ligue 1 giants.
