Manchester United’s Mourinho urged to complete triple signing after Pogba capture

MOURINHO

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been urged to completed three more signings in the summer transfer window by the former Red Devils defender Paul Parker.

The Premier League giants have already added four new faces, which includes the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba. The latter returned to Old Trafford from Juventus for a world-record transfer fee of £89 million.

The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager earlier admitted that he wanted four specialists in his team and with Pogba’s acquisition, he has completed that. However, Parker believes Mourinho’s side are still needs a central defender, midfielder and a striker in the current transfer window if they have to win the league this season.

“They still need a forward and a centre-half and another midfield player. Manchester United aren’t finished yet; they can’t be because that present squad just isn’t going to win the league and Mourinho is all about winning the league,” Parker told 888Sport.com.

United started the campaign with a 3-1 comfortable victory over AFC Bournemouth last Sunday. Parker believes it is difficult to judge whether his former club will finish in top four this campaign.

“Would you say United can even finish top four after what we saw in the Bournemouth game? I’d have to say not really,” he added.

“Liverpool look good and Arsenal will improve. Tottenham and Chelsea are hard to break down and will be in there.

“So United have some work to do between now and the end of August to bring in at least three players to guarantee a Champions League spot and maybe win the league.”

  1. And you would know a lot more than Mourinho wouldn’t you Paul. Just what is your gripe with Utd pal, shut the **** up.

  2. Another good quality central defender may help United but they need another center forward like they need a third string goal keeper being named number one. United have Ibra and when they want to give him a rest, they can play Rooney or Martial up front. Similarly, they have gazillions of midfielders and it’s best to see what the dynamics will be when Pogba and Mkhitarian are inserted regularly into the mix before going out and getting another one. Besides, earlier in his career, Jones was used to provide some steel in the midfield and with Pogba, Mkhitarian, Rooney, Mata and Herrera providing the offensive thrust in the midfield with a combination of Ibra, Martial and Rashford providing the striking force, it may be a much easier task providing the defensive midfield support than it has been in a long time. Carrick, Jones and Schneiderlin may be bored to death this year:) With Shaw back and the other corner back of either Rojos, Valencia and Darmian and Bailey, Blind, Smalling and Fosu-Mensah as the CD options, the need for protection of the back line may not be as intense as it once was.
