Real Madrid coach Mourinho: I want two more signings

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho wants two more signings following the capture of Stuttgart midfielder Sami Khedira.

Mourinho has already signed Angel di Maria, Pedro Leon and Sami Khedira this summer but admits he needs more recruits at both ends of the pitch as he looks to bring silverware to Madrid.

"I think the club can still give me a defender but it's difficult to find quality players and youngsters with a lot of potential," he told Portuguese newspaper Record.

"As well as a defender I would like another striker. If another attacking player comes in, he will be more than welcome.

"For the centre of the attack I have Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain, although Cristiano Ronaldo can also occupy that role.

"But I prefer for him to have more freedom to feel comfortable - he has too much talent to be limited to that position. That's why I would like to have someone else - let's see if it's possible."
