Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to beat Manchester City and Chelsea to the signature of Real Madrid attacker Isco this summer, according to the Daily Star.

City rivals Manchester City are also interested in a move for the player but Mourinho wants to stop his rivals from bringing in the player during the next window.

United have really lacked that something extra in certain games this season such as the defeat at Newcastle and he would bring some much-needed quality in the final third to play alongside January signing Alexis Sanchez.

The Spanish midfielder has struggled to nail down a regular place in the team this season which has alerted United about the player possibly wanting to make a move away.

Chelsea have also been linked with the player, with reports suggesting Madrid could offer him as part of a deal for Thibaut Courtois.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane spoke about the situation regarding Isco.

I believe in what I do, and I want Isco to stay here his whole life, Isco is a very good player.
