The Premier League transfer window slams shut on August 9, and manager Jose Mourinho is still said to be eyeing these eight defenders as possible signings for Manchester United.

The Portuguese boss has already lured the likes of Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant to the Red Devils ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, but according to Manchester Evening News, Mourinho is not finished in this window.

Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane is said to be one of Mourinho’s defensive targets, though luring the Frenchman from the Spanish giants might prove difficult.

The 25-year-old is a first team regular at Los Blancos, and has already made 233 appearances for the first team.

Another LaLiga defender, Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez, is another player the United boss is believed to be looking at, as well as Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld, who has been linked with an exit from the Lilywhites since last season.

23-year-old Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has also been a reported target, though publications in Italy have seemed to suggest that he will remain in Italy for the 2018/19 campaign.

Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly, who impressed for Senegal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, is said to be on Mourinho’s radar, as well as AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli.
