Reports: Mourinho Urged To Sign Croatia Star Ahead Of Bale and Willian

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been urged to sign a Croatian star ahead of Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Chelsea's Willian.

Mourinho: I Handed The Club A Five-Man Shortlist For Transfers

According to the Sunday Times, Red Devils scouts have told the Portuguese tactician to end his pursuit of the Welshman and the Brazilian as they believe a better option is available.

It is understood that Mourinho would like to sign a new winger in this transfer window, and his scouting department has suggested that he go after Eintracht Frankfurt star Ante Rebic.

The 24-year-old, who had a terrific 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign with Croatia, helped his country reach their first final in the global showpiece final, which they ended up losing 4-2 to France.

Relic would presumably fill the vacant right wing role, but it seems Mourinho is not entirely sold on the former Fiorentina star.

Juve Target: I Want To Leave Man Utd

Rebic, who would be a cheaper option to Bale and Willian, made 28 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt last season, scoring nine goals and assisting a further three strikes.

Do you think the Croatian would be a good addition to the Red Devils' squad? Have your say in the comments section below.
