Man Utd boss Mourinho identifies three priority positions

Manchester United are set to make three big signings this summer as they look to challenge for major silverware next season.

According to Metro, manager Jose Mourinho wants a new left-back, centre-mid and centre-back.

The club has been strongly linked with Juventus star Alex Sandro, Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham and Fred from Shakhtar Donestk.

Fred is expected to soon arrive at Old Trafford for a fee of around £53 million, while talks are ongoing for Alderweireld.

United chiefs have reportedly sanctioned Mourinho with a £150 million budget to buy new players but this figure could rise as player sales take place.
