Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to get deals done for Everton’s John Stones and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane in the summer, with the pair at the top of his wish list.
The Highly-rated England international duo are said to be on top of Jose Mourinho’s wishlist in the summer, who is widely expected to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford at the end of the season
Ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is continuing to make transfer plans for what he believes is his next job at Old Trafford.
Despite Mourinho links Dutch manager Van Gaal himself feels he will remain in the United job, and revealed expectation that he will leave in the summer.
Kane from Spurs is likely to be the hardest of those proposed deals as the free-scoring no.10 has been instrumental for the Lilywhites this season, scoring 22 goals in the Premier League and helping the north London side climb to second in the table.
England international youngster Stones, on the other hand, was at the centre of widespread transfer speculation last summer when Chelsea were strongly linked with the young centre-back. Everton refused to sell the 21-year-old, though, who has enjoyed a good, if not problematic campaign for the Toffees this season.
Reports also insists that the Portuguese manager wants at least five new signings for United in the summer to start rebuilding process.
LVG’s side have been given encouragement in their transfer race for Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez by Spanish football expert Guillem Balague insisting that Real Madrid are “happy to sell” former Porto and Monaco star.
“All I can say is that Real Madrid are more than happy to sell him… if they get the right amount of money.” Balague told to Sky Sports about James’s future.
Reports suggest that figure could be close to the £63m that Madrid paid AS Monaco for Rodriguez after the 2014 World Cup, and that United are showing interest in the forward.
It is believed that United swoop for the 24-year-old could increase if Jose Mourinho is appointed manager in the summer, with The Express reporting that he would be keen on a move for James.
Colombian midfielder has had a difficult second season with Madrid, losing his regular place in the team and being criticised by the Spanish press for his off-field behaviour, according to The Express.
However, he still has a reputation for being one of the best players in the world, and the Red Devils could desperately do with someone of his creative talents. According to Balague, this deal could be a goer.
LvG’s side are leading the chase for PSV Eindhoven talented striker Sekou Sidibe.
Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur and Merseyside Blues are also keen on the Belgium Under-15 international, whose family hail from the Ivory Coast.
The 14-year old starlet Sidibe, has impressed visiting scouts with his displays for PSV’s Under-16 side this season. He is yet to sign a contract with the Dutch club due to his age – meaning Premier League clubs could land the teenager merely by paying PSV compensation for his training.
Currently appearing for the Boeren’s under-16s side despite his tender years, the Belgian is highly regarded as a player of huge potential.
Only time will tell if he can make the most of his ability.
