Jose Mourinho has revealed Manchester United’s plans for the upcoming January transfer window
After the club failed to sign a central defender in the summer, United are rumoured to be lining up bids to reinforce their centre-back department.
During his pre-match press conference, the Portuguese was quizzed about how United would go through the January window and if any new signings can be expected. Mourinho replied saying he isn’t very confident of a new arrival in winter but the club wouldn’t make more than one signing if at all they do.
“Honestly, I don’t think we are going to sign,” he said. “If we do, I would say one player. I don’t see us going more than that.”
When asked whether signing Alderwiereld up is a possibility, Mourinho replied, “It’s very hard for me to go for names in that sense.
“I went for names that everybody knows are impossible names. It’s easier to say we cannot buy Eden Hazard or we cannot buy [Sergio] Aguero than to speak about names where the general feeling is there is a chance. I cannot go in that direction.”
