6 More Players On Jose Mourinho's Wish List Revealed

Jose Mourinho has already secured two new players for Manchester United, but there are reportedly six more names on his wish list.

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see six players who have been linked with United.

The Portuguese has already lured centre back Victor Lindelof and striker Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford, and apparently wants to add at least two more new faces to his squad.

First on Mourinho's reported wish list is Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic. However, the Serie A side are demanding £50 million (R843 million) for the Croatian, according to the Daily Star.

United, though, do not want to go above £45 million (R759 million) for the 28-year-old, but recent reports suggest a deal could be agreed on in the next 48 hours.

Mourinho also wants to add another central midfielder to his squad and reportedly has three names in mind.

Nemanja Matic, Eric Dier and Radja Nainggolan have been linked with the Red Devils, but it remains to be seen if Mourinho can lure any of them to United.

Matic was apparently close to joining the Red Devils, with a deal reportedly close to being completed after Chelsea's signing of Tiemoue Bakayoko, but talks have stalled because the Blues are said to be unhappy with how United stole Romelu Lukaku from under their noses.

Mourinho is also reportedly keen on a new right back, even though the abovementioned two positions have priority right now. Ivory Coast's Serge Aurier has been linked with a move from Paris Saint-Germain to Old Trafford as a result.

Up front, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could rejoin the club on a six-month deal once he recovers from his serious knee injury.

Which of these players do you think Mourinho should still sign for United? Have your say in the comments section below.

A defensive midfielder is all United require. 4-1-2-2-1 Starting XI GK De Gea RB Valencia CB Baily CB Lindelof LB Shaw CDN Matic LCM Pogba RCM Hererra RW Lingaard LW Mkhitaryan CF Lukaku. That line up can bring back the EPL title to Old Trafford and will provide a deep run into the UCL.

These are not wow players, Bobby was going to say that. Perisic maybe yes but if we go for Matic, Perisic, Naingoolan and Dier then where is Pogba, Mkhitarian,Hereira, Marta,Carick going to play?? We don't need too much players otherwise we will be on a rebuilding phase again. Lets keep the nuclear of the squad and make atleast two additions and then we will be unstoppable next season.
