12 Feb Five players Mourinho hopes to sign
Jose Mourinho stated he was “confident” that he would replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United in the summer, with talks reportedly taken place between the two. PLZ Soccer takes a look at whom Mourinho might target for the Red Devils as he looks set to inherit a transfer warchest of £300 million.
The Welshman has been long sought after by Manchester United and the presence of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford might just make this happen. Bale has been in impressive form for Real Madrid this season with 13 goals in 15 games but was reportedly unhappy at the decision of the Madrid board to oust Rafael Benitez, whom he had developed a strong relationship with. It remains to be seen whether Zinedine Zidane will have the same impact on Bale as Benitez did. But if the uncertainty of Van Gaal’s position at United is finally kicked into the long grass and Mourinho becomes his successor, Bale could very likely move to United with odds on a move to Old Trafford slashed.
