The Manchester United coach recently stated that he submitted a list of five names he wanted the Red Devils to sign to the club's board.

"I would like to have two more players. I think I am not going to get two," Mourinho said, as quoted by beIN SPORTS.

"I think that it's possible I will have one. And that one, I gave a list to my club of five names a few months ago. And I wait to see if it's possible to have one of these players.

"If it's possible, it's possible; if it's not, it's not. If it's possible, it's good; if not, then we keep fighting and working and believing in the players that we have."

Marca has now reported that Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale were the two Los Blancos stars Mourinho wanted to lure to Old Trafford. However, the Spanish giants rejected the approach for both of them, while the players seem happy in Spain too.

Bale expressed his frustrations under Zinedine Zidane last season, but it is believed new Real coach Julen Lopetegui wants to give him a more prominent role after Cristiano Ronaldo's exit from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos, meanwhile, was close to joining United before he opted to sign for Real in 2014. He has been a target for the Red Devils a number of times over the years since, but he is now one of the key players at the Madrid club.
