Alexis Sanchez's mega move to Manchester United could reportedly be completed today, and Jose Mourinho has now revealed why he desperately wants to sign the Chilean.
Click through the gallery above to see how United could line up with Sanchez, according to The Independent.
Sanchez is understood to have arrived at United's Carrington training complex on Monday afternoon in order to complete a medical and put pen to paper on a new Premier League record deal.
The 29-year-old will reportedly become the league's record earner should he make the switch, and could take over the club's vacant No. 7 shirt.
After United's 1-0 win at Burnley on Saturday, Mourinho explained why he wants to add the Arsenal winger to his squad when asked about the potential signing.
"In this moment, there is no competition for places," he said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
"In this moment, we have four attacking players for three positions, three are starting, one is on the bench, Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) for the whole season was not available.
"We look to central defenders, played (Phil) Jones and (Chris) Smalling, (Marcos) Rojo on the bench, Victor (Lindelof) in the stands, (Eric) Bailly is injured, look to midfield, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Ander) Herrera and (Scott) McTominay on the bench, (Michael) Carrick in the stands.
"And we look to the attacking areas and we need that extra competitive internal competition but more solutions for us, so let's see."
United's next game will be an FA Cup clash at Yeovil Town on Friday, with many expecting Sanchez to be a Red Devil by then.
