Manchester United manager José Mourinho is keen to sign a defensive midfielder.
Second only to his primary goal of signing a new striker, acquiring a defensive midfielder is high up on Mourinho's priority list. Who they hope to bring to the club is not yet clear. Their league rivals Chelsea appear to be in pole position to sign Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko, but United could still attempt to hijack that deal. However, there are reports of definite contact between the two clubs over Bakayoko's teammate Fabinho. However, Monaco are unwilling to sell and will require a handsome sum to relinquish their grasp on the Brazilian right-back who can also play in the hole behind the midfield. If that pursuit fails, Mourinho hasn't ruled out trying to link up Nemanja Matic again. Eric Dier lies at the bottom of the three man list of potential signings. Jun 13 - 12:57 PM
