Duncan Castles reveals how many more Man United signing Jose Mourinho wants

The links to Alderweireld go back well over a year, with the Belgian's impressive displays for Tottenham making him an obvious candidate to improve United's defence, while Maguire's World Cup performances have seen his status elevated enormously.

Recent reports from the Manchester Evening News suggest that the Van Dijk deal is being referenced by Leicester in an attempt to justify their asking price for Maguire, a factor that may wind Jose Mourinho up even more having recently questioned some of Liverpool's transfer dealings.

Martial has made it clear to Mourinho and United's board that he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.

There have been reports that Bayern could be in the market for a swap deal involving Martial and centre-half Jerome Boateng.

The Brazilian worldwide is also seeking a move before Thursday's deadline and Willian has been constantly linked with Man Utd ever since Mourinho took charge two years ago and it seems a reunion could finally be on the cards.

"He is more than capable - one of the best coaches in the world - but have they got it right?"

Jose Mourinho, successful or otherwise, appears intent on making United the tactical counterpoint to their Premier League rivals. They could not have done better than they did.

'There was a moment I was looking to the area and there was Axel (Tuanzebe) at centre-back to left, Demetri (Mitchell) at left wing-back, (James) Garner in midfield on the left and (Tahith) Chong.

"It was fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. It was their complete squad apart from [Corentin] Tolisso".

Forward Marcus Rashford donned the number 10 shirt, with the club later confirming he would keep the squad number, previously worn by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney, for the coming season.

Former chief executive Peter Kenyon said on Sunday he believes Mourinho needs to find a way of "working out" his issues with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
