The manager recently revealed he will be looking to replace both Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini in the next window, with the former having retired from football and the latter's contract at the club expiring come the end of the season.
According to The Sun, Mourinho is interested in Napoli's Jorginho – a Brazilian-born Italy international. The 26-year-old has also been linked with Manchester City, although it remains to be seen where his future lies.
Monaco's Fabinho has also been mentioned many times as a transfer target for United, along with Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Roma duo Kevin Strootman and Radja Nainggolan.
The latter has been linked with a move to England on many occasions, with Chelsea among those said to have been after his signature, but with the Blues not being in a UEFA Champions League spot on the Premier League table, United may be a more desirable destination.
Mourinho could very well have the likes of Dele Alli and Eric Dier in mind, although their manager Mauricio Pochettino is likely to fight for them to remain at Tottenham Hotspur. The Argentine has previously revealed how Mourinho tried to sign Dier in 2016, but he convinced the player to stay with the Lilywhites.
The Express reported earlier this month that FC Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic might be tempted by a switch to United, although his performances under Ernesto Valverde would suggest his spot at the Catalan club is secured for next season if he chooses to stay.
Valencia's Carlos Soler and Shakhtar Donetsk's Fred are another two midfielders Mourinho might target to partner the likes of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, although Ander Herrera's recent displays in the middle of the park have been of a high standard.
Which of these midfielders would you like to see at United next season? Let us know in the comments section below.
