Reports: Mourinho Identifies Main Transfer Target

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified his main transfer target for the Red Devils.

According to Manchester Evening News, United are being heavily interested in German midfielder Leon Goretzka.

The 22-year-old's contract with Schalke expires at end of the season, which means he could leave for free in seven months' time.

Mourinho is reportedly interested in luring the Germany international to Old Trafford, while FC Barcelona and Liverpool, among others, are also said to be keeping a close watch on the player.

Goretzka was one of his side's best players in the 2016/17 campaign, scoring eight goals and assisting a further six strikes in 41 matches.

Paul Pogba's injury recently showed United's vulnerability in midfield without the Frenchman, which could be one of the reasons for Mourinho's interest in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup winner.

The player has already made an impressive start for his national team, scoring six goals in his first 12 appearances for his country.
