Mourinho pushes Man Utd to outbid Liverpool for Napoli midfielder Jorginho

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is determined to join the battle for Napoli midfielder Jorginho.

The Daily Star says Mourinho is desperate to bring in midfield re-enforcements this summer and will try to tempt Napoli with an initial £50m bid.

United need a midfield enforcer, with Michael Carrick set to retire and Marouane Fellaini deciding to leave after failing to agree a new contract.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp thought he was in pole position to land Jorginho after targeting him as a replacement for Emre Can.

But Mourinho is now keen on the 26-year-old and is poised to go head-to-head with his Anfield rival for the Italian international.
