Several changes in the Manchester United team are preparing for the new season José Mourinho. The Portuguese technician who recently lost his father; Felix, 78, plans to present a team tighter on each level. He knows very well that the season that ended his defensive line faced several problems and thing would have been even worse if there was no one under the splendor of the wonderful, De Gea, that covered many needs. But now that United, will appear in both the UEFA Champions League- but wants to play in the Premier League it needs to be strengthened to a great extent.
The young lefty back, Luke Shaw, a few years ago, showed that he had the backgrounds to reach very high, the last two almost disappeared. Of course, injuries do not leave him in peace. Then, beyond the rising French footprint, both the Argentine, Rojo and Jones do not seem able to offer what the team wants. So, giving 35 millions euros from Benfica, Victor Lindelof, 25 years old, for whom very good words are heard.
In the midfield area, Mourinho, in the new season awaits a lot more than the French; Paul Pogba, who last year was a few times offering what everyone expected. The record-breaking sum of 106 million euros spent by United in the summer of 2016 to get it into the workforce has not yet begin to repay it with its appearances, the international Frenchman. The Spaniard, Ander Herrera, certainly in the second half of the championship, surprised his coach positively and now he cannot be shaken by the lord.
Manchester United is expected in the coming days to put Chelsea`s international Serb chip leader Nemanja Matic, to an amount that may reach 40 million euros. Mourinho, is well aware of the football player since he was coach of the "Blue". So it is strengthened in the defensive part of the center which will leave more free space to move the Paul Pogba.
Kane and Bale.
José Mourinho; however, wants a great boost in the fire line. The serious injury of Zlatan Ibrahimovic (he will return to action with the New Year) has forced the administration of Man United not to renew his contract as he is 35 years old. This necessarily and not, one has to proceed hard to acquired one and even two important agressors. French striker Antoine Griezmann, has fallen out of the box as the Atlético Madrid administration has managed to make a significant increase in his annual paycheck, so the footballer has thought about it again and decided to continue on the Madrid red-and-white.
Now the English team has turned its eyes to two other times, the international Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur, for which it has to pay an amount of at least Euro 120 million. To convince the flight of the cocks to give it up.
At the same time, everyone in United wants the team to acquired Real Madrid`s international Welsh striker, Gareth Bale, a player who José Mourinho also appreciates. But here too, an amount of more than 100 million euros should be spent.
Beyond that yound Adnan Januzad, does not seem to be evolving, so he will be given another team. The third goalkeeper San Johnstone, is expected to look elsewhere for his luck. Unknown what to do with Martial that does not rise...
The surety is that United will spend at least 250 million euros in order to be able to be better in the new season and play a leading role as it is usual...
