Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that he would like two new signings.

Mourinho says that in an idea world he will make two more additions to his United side this summer, although he would be content with one.

He acknowledges how hard of a job Ed Woodward has and is not expecting the world from the United negotiator.

United have already made two big summer signings, in the form of Vincent Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku from Benfica and Everton respectively.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mourinho said this:

We don’t have our door closed. We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof, we need more. We wanted four, so I would say 50 per cent of the job is done, but I don’t want to say that because everything is so difficult.

I would not like to be in Ed Woodward’s position negotiating because everything is really difficult. So maybe we don’t get two, we get one. But we need one more to give us more options.

The Red Devils are thought to be in the market for a defensive midfielder, with a number of names already being linked with the club.

Nemanja Matic, Chelsea, and Eric Dier, Tottenham, are two names that have cropped up frequently, as well as Roma’s Radja Nainggolan.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has also been touted with the switch to Old Trafford but that deal now appears to be dead in the water.
