4 star players Jose Mourinho will sign if appointed as Man Utd’s manager

Although Van Gaal doesn’t look like he will be sacked this season especially after United’s win against City which gives them hope of finishing fourth in the League, Mourinho is still favorite to take over in the summer. If Mourinho signs for Manchester United,it is likely that he will go for squad overhaul. United’s squad is unbalanced and filled with under-performing players. He will try to get some players of his ‘type’ so that he can see the United squad playing in his style.

Gareth Bale

A superstar signing which even Ed Woodward has been trying to make for quite sometime now. Bale is quick,direct and powerful,a perfect example of what Mourinho wants in a player. Add his defensive upbringing as a left back, there is no reason why Mourinho will let go of the option to sign the Welshman.

Sergio Ramos

The Real Madrid captain was instrumental in the league win for Real under Mourinho. Now with his experience and his fantastic reading of the game, Ramos will be a perfect leader at the back for United. His inspirational leadership and ability to score some important goals are added bonuses.

Lucas Moura

Another player who is quick and can beat player at his will and United certainly need someone of his type.

Sadio Mane

This Southampton player was already an LVG target,but United missed out on him during the summer. Mourinho will love to bring him to the club.
