Reports: Mourinho Eyeing £100m PSG Star

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly keeping a close eye on a Paris Saint-Germain star who could cost the English giants £100 million (R1.68 billion).

Mourinho's First Signing For Next Season Revealed?

According to the Daily Mirror, the Portuguese tactician has identified Italy international Marco Verratti as a possible target, and may put a bid in for him in the coming weeks.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss is looking to rebuild his midfield for the upcoming campaign – especially with Michael Carrick having retired at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, and Marouane Fellaini having yet to agree a new deal with the club – and seemingly sees the 25-year-old as a perfect fit for his system.

Reports suggest that United have tried to sign the Italian before, but were unsuccessful at the time as PSG did not want to sell the superstar.

Verratti is not the only midfielder the Red Devils are looking to add to their squad in this transfer window, with it being said that they are also linked with Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred.

The pair could form a new partnership alongside either Nemanja Matic or France international Paul Pogba, who is expected to star at Old Trafford, despite some reports suggesting he, too, could be on his way out the club.

The Italian has made 239 appearances for PSG since joining the club in 2014, scoring eight goals and assisting a further 43 strikes.
