Mourinho hints Brazilian flair needed at Man Utd

Jose Mourinho has hinted he could make a move for a Brazilian this summer.

The Manchester United manager is reportedly interested in Chelsea dynamo Willian, Shakhtar Donestk midfielder Fred and Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

And speaking on the World Cup, Mourinho believes he is missing the Samba flair in his United squad.

"I think that a team without a Brazilian isn't a team," he told ESPN Brazil recently. "I think their talent is fantastic and the creativity of the Brazilian player cannot be measured.

"If a European team, like, very European, could have a Brazilian in their squad, it would bring a 'Brazilian thing' to the game and I think that's very important."
