The squad revamping Manchester United is undergoing will sure translate into success next season, as Mourinho wants to hit the ground running once the season resumes. The Portuguese is taking his time with his choices as far as transfers in and out of the Old Trafford are concerned, and it will definitely be a new Red Devils when they lineup for next campaign. After snatching up Villareal’s Eric Bailly as his first signing, Jose has shifted attention to the middle of the pack, and has 3 players on his mind at the moment. Although the trio are currently with Germany, France and Portugal at the Euros 2016, and that could see talks not finalized until after the tournament, but that hasn’t stopped the coach from persuading the club in pursuing their signatures.

France international, Paul Pogba remains a priority for the erstwhile Chelsea boss, and according to The Sun he wants to land him after having failed to do so while at the Stamford Bridge. The reports say United want to seize Juventus interest in Darmian Matteo as an advantage, and they want to make him as a makeweight in landing Pogba. Matteo faces the risk of being axed from the squad by Mourinho with the Portuguese tactician not convinced with the Italy international’s efforts. A return to the Old Trafford looks set to take place for Pogba, a former United Academy player, but they will face stiff competition from the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Toni Kroos is also still a target, and the Real Madrid midfielder could leave the Bernabeu if Pogba arrives. The Germany international is a keen player of Jose’s, and he wants the board to land him no matter the cost. United are reportedly interested in paying £31.2million for the 26-year-old midfielder, but Real Madrid want nothing less than £35million for the former Bayern Munich ace.

Nani is also a name that has come up as a surprise on United’s list. The 29-year-old Fenerbahce winger left United following LVG’s arrival, but could well be on his way back. The wing has been of great concern for the club in recent times, with the latest signings, Di Maria and Depay failing to make an impression. It is reported that Nani has already agreed personal terms with the Red Devils, but the £6.2million buyout clause in his contract could dissuade them from pursuing his signature. The Portugal international sure has what it takes to play under Jose Mourinho, and his addition will be of great importance if it is achieved.

Former Manchester United player and flop, Radamel Falcao wants to remain in the EPL after another disappointing in England at the Stamford Bridge. Newly promoted side, Middlesbrough have offered the Colombian a 12-month loan, and a pay cut from his £275,000 Pounds weekly wages will definitely be a factor to be considered. The side’s manager, Aitor Karanka shares the same agent with Falcao in Jorge Mendes, and that could see a deal work out for the AS Monaco striker.
