LINDELOF? Mourinho hints at ONE winter signing for Man Utd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hinted that the club could make just ONE signing this winter.

The Red Devils continue to be heavily linked with a £38million move for Benfica's Swedish defender Victor Lindelof, and according to Mourinho, there will only be one new player coming to Old Trafford in January.

"If we buy a player we buy a player, we're not buying two, three or four," he told Sky Sports News HQ.

"I believe more in the summer market than in the winter window. More time, more choice, I think it's better. But let's see what happens."

It is also understood that Portuguese giants Benfica have agreed a £700,000 deal for Huachipato's teenage Chilean right-back Simon Ramirez to replace the outgoing Lindelof.
