​REVEALED: Mourinho admits he wants these two players for Man Utd…

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed he wants to sign a wide player and a central midfielder before the season starts.

The Portuguese has stated that he wanted four players to be brought in this summer, but chief negotiator Ed Woodward has only managed to attain Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof.

Chelsea's Nemanja Matic is viewed as Mourinho's preferred option in midfielder, while a deal for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic is still in negotiations. However, Mourinho believes it is more likely the club will only sign one or the other.

"I'm happy with my squad but I would like to have two more players, I never hide that, one player a midfield player would give me more options to the balance and the team," he said.

"Another one an attacking player, especially that can play through the wings to give me more attacking options but I never speak about players that belong to other teams.

"I don't like if any manager comes and would say he would like one of my players, that's not correct. I would like two more players but probably I only get one."
