Reports: Jose Mourinho Wants 'Next Neymar' At Manchester United

Manchester United manager boss Jose Mourinho reportedly wants to lure the "next Neymar" to the Red Devils.

Report: EPL Manager Added To Shortlist For PSG Job

According to the Metro, the Portuguese tactician is looking to lure Bordeaux winger Malcom to United at the end of the season.

The 20-year-old has been compared to Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar due to his dribbling ability and eye for goal.

The Brazilian has been sensational in France's Ligue 1 this season, scoring seven goals and assisting a further four strikes in just 18 matches.

Mourinho apparently does not want to miss out on signing the winger, especially with English rivals Manchester City rumoured to be interested in his services too.

The Portuguese is said to be worried that United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward stalls too long in negotiations, especially after the club's failure to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic at the beginning of the campaign.

That's why youngsters won't live up to their full potential cause they are deemed the next person instead of being their own person!
