Mourinho desperate for Man Utd board to release more transfer funds

Mourinho desperate for Man Utd board to release more transfer funds

The aforementioned trio of Rojo, Smalling and Bailly are the ones up for the chop, and all three have failed to nail down a guaranteed spot over the last couple of years, but Mourinho feels that bringing in Maguire will aid United's chances of reeling in reigning Premier League champions Manchester City ahead of the new season. That's the big question on every fans' lips as they enter the new season.

Without their World Cup stars back in the fold the beginning of the Red Devil's pre season tour to the United States hasn't been great with two draws against American opposition, a 1-1 and a 0-0.

The forward struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the first team at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho last season and that has prompted talk of a move away.

However after more links to Harry Maguire came about odds have fallen drastically from 10/1 to just 11/10 in a matter of days according to Betway.

The Daily Mail says that Mourinho has more than a passing interest in the Leicester centre-back, believing that Maguire has the commanding presence that his Old Trafford defence desperately needs.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho admits the club could potentially miss out on key transfer targets this summer as he prepares to dethrone neighbours Manchester City.

Dalot, here playing against Liverpool, is one of only three signings so far.

Maguire could replace Phil Jones or Smalling in Mourinho's line-up, as he has done with England.

The 25-year-old is reportedly worth £65million, having joined Leicester in 2017 from Hull City for a bargain £17million.
