Reports: Mourinho Wants These Two Man Utd Stars To Stay

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly changed his mind and decided he would now like to keep two certain players at Old Trafford until at least January.

Reports: Mourinho To Sign 3 Stars In Jan, Including Shock Superstar Return

According to the Daily Mirror, the Portuguese tactician was initially keen to offload right-back Matteo Darmian and centre-back Marcos Rojo, but with the English window now closed, he now apparently wants to keep them at the club a little longer.

Mourinho tried his utmost to sign a defender in the window, but things did not work out as planned, and the former Chelsea boss is now having to make do with what he has in his current squad.

With the European window only closing on 31 August, Rojo, who was expected to make way for a new centre-back, has been linked with a loan move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce, while Darmian has been in talks with a few Serie A clubs – the most recent being Napoli.

With Antonio Valencia and Diogo Dalot currently injured, the Italian is the only fit right-back at the club at this point in time, and with a possible run of games on the cards, he could play his way back into Mourinho's plans.

The Argentine, meanwhile, will provide cover for Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof until the next window in January.
