Jose Mourinho has confirmed he still wants a midfielder and a wide player at Manchester United before the transfer window shuts.
“I’m happy with my squad but I would like to have two more players, I never hide that, one player a midfield player would give me more options to the balance and the team,” he said.
“Another one an attacking player, especially that can play through the wings to give me more attacking options but I never speak about players that belong to other teams.”
“I don’t like if any manager comes and would say he would like one of my players, that’s not correct. I would like two more players but probably I only get one.”
Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic and Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic have both been heavily linked with United and Mourinho hinted he’s desperate for Woodward to wrap up deals for the duo ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
On who could still arrive this summer, Mourinho told the media: ‘I don’t know, honestly, Ed is in control, he did Lindelof and Lukaku, he knows that I would like two more players but he also knows that I have balance, I depend on the situation, the market, and if my club is unable to do two players and just one, I accept that as a consequence of the market now.
‘Our relationship is good and I just wait for good news, and good news is to have the players, maybe just the player as soon as possible because to work together with the team is really important.
‘But I’m calm, I like my players, I like my squad, I trust them, so I’m calm and that’s important.’
