Reports: African Star Wanted By Jose Mourinho

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 30, 2017 08:57 AM @KeeganKruger

With the transfer window closing within the next 48 hours, an African superstar has reportedly caught the attention of Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the five Africans Manchester United have signed in their history.

The Red Devils are said to still be in the market for a winger, but have failed to secure the signatures of the likes of Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale so far.

According to French publication SFR Sport, however, Mourinho is now keen on making a late bid for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez.

The Portuguese tactician apparently feels his squad is in need of a world-class attacker and thinks the 26-year-old playmaker fits the bill.

The Algerian, who handed in a transfer request back in May, has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Roma, but no bids have been forthcoming as yet.

The 2015/16 PFA Players' Player of the Year and 2016 BBC African Footballer of the Year has started the season in fine form, assisting two goals in his first three league fixtures.

Do you think Mahrez would be a good signing for the Red Devils? Have your say in the comments section below.
