‘United eyeing more transfer targets’

LOS ANGELES: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said Friday the Premier League giants were targeting two more major signings as they aim to build a title-winning squad.

United have already bolstered their ranks in recent weeks with the addition of Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton and Swedish defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica.

The Red Devils are also reported to be circling Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic and Tottenham’s Eric Dier as they aim to recruit a top-class defensive midfielder.

Mourinho declined to comment on his reported interest in Matic on Friday as his team prepared for the opening game of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States against the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday.

But the Portuguese confirmed that the club were still aiming to sign two more players.

“We don’t have our door closed, we are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof,” Mourinho told reporters. “We need more. We wanted four (signings), so I would say 50 per cent of the job is done.” — AFP
