Man Utd boss Mourinho not dropping left-back signing plans just yet

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho hasn't completely shelved plans to buy a new left-back this summer.

The Daily Express says a centre-back is the top priority while another forward, with Chelsea's Willian first choice, comes next.

Mourinho is ready to wait until next season to sign a new left-back despite trying to sign Sandro from Juventus.

There is a chance United will gauge Juve's desire to sell again after they agreed the deal to sign Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

But otherwise Mourinho will give Luke Shaw another chance and stick with Ashley Young as first choice.

A number of fringe players are expected to leave United with Ajax keen on Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian linked with a move back to Italy.
