Reports: Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho Ready To Ditch Two Stars

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to offload two stars at the end of this season.

Mkhitaryan Explains The Difference Between Mourinho & Wenger

According to the Daily Mirror, The Portuguese tactician wants to bring in two new central defenders in the place of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the next transfer window. 

The pair were highly criticised after the Red Devils' 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday in the Premier League, and there are now rumours circulating that Mourinho is ready to shake things up at the back.

The Old Trafford-based side have seen their rivals Liverpool and Manchester City splash £75 million (R1.24  billion) and £57 million (R942 million) on centre backs Virgil van Dijk and Aymeric Laporte in the latest transfer window, and the former Chelsea boss feels that he may have to follow suit.

The English publication believes that Mourinho’s side have identified Leicester City defender Harry Maguire and Real Madrid star Raphael Varane as replacements for Smalling and Jones.

United have had their fair share of injury concerns at the back this season, as Ivory Coast international Eric Bailly has missed the last three months of football due to ankle surgery, while Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof only returned to fitness recently.

Utd always prided themselves with excellent centre backs Vidic/Ferdinand Bruce/Pallister. These players commanded the defence. They were hard players (Vidic Bruce Stam). What they need is another marquee signing to pair with Bailly. Smalling can't cut it for Utd anymore. Jones is injury prone. We r just not dominant in the back anymore even though we might have the best defensive record that is only because of De Gea.
