Roma coach Mourinho targets Man Utd trio - and Douglas Luiz

Roma coach Jose Mourinho is planning to go back to Manchester United for several of his former players.

Il Corriere dello Sport says Mourinho 'appreciates' Premier League players because of their 'dynamism, quality and strength'.

Nemanja Matic, who recently informed United of his desire to leave at the end of the season, Diogo Dalot and Eric Bailly are three of the four Mourinho is after for next season.

The other name that has come up is that of Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz.

Luiz is one of Mourinho's favourite players and at just 23, the Brazilian is still yet to hit his best form.
