Jose Mourinho remains hopeful that Manchester United can complete their transfer business early in the summer transfer window as the Red Devils manager looks to seal the deals for “difficult targets.”Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman is the man in charge in bringing new faces to the club. Mourinho reveals he provides Woodward with more than one option per position as he looks to strengthen his squad, and his targets are not unrealistic.
“It’s very important to get signings done early and the board knows that. But I also know that the market is very -difficult, so I’m not a silly ¬manager to say, ‘I give the names and you have to give me the players’,” Mourinho explained, as reported by Goal.com.
“I give the names, the ¬options, I give the second ¬options in case the first are not possible. But I give all the -information based on my ¬analysis, based on my ¬experience and my ¬projections for the future.
“But our ¬relationship is very, very good. First of all they know I’m not asking for ¬impossible targets, I ask for difficult targets. Then it’s a ¬difficult job and they try to do the best they can.
“I’m sure that by the end of the summer we probably don’t have exactly my first ¬options, because it’s difficult to succeed with every attempt. But I’m sure we’re going to do something interesting and to improve our team for next season.”
United have already tied up with high-profile players that included Barcelona star Neymar, who were dismissed by Mourinho after calling it “impossible” to sign. However, the former Real Madrid manager and Chelsea confirmed that he wanted to bring these players only to United who are keen to join the Red Devils.”If the player wants to move to London, enjoy the London ¬, we do not want you, if the first thing you think is where you are going to live, think Los Angeles,” he said.
“We want people to, if you call Mr. Woodward or call some guy or some agent, we want people who are about to share or dream about coming.”This is the profile of the players want, and if you do not want to come to us, good luck, enjoy your other club.
