4 Euro 2016 stars Jose Mourinho should sign for Man United

The Euros is a global tournament which gives a chance for players to showcase their talents to a wide audience. Many players who play for clubs which are not a regular in the Champions League fail to attract much interest from the big club and a competition like the Euros provides the perfect opportunity for them.

Marek Hamsik

Although Slovakia are out of the tournament, Hamsik has been their lone shining light. Having spend many years at Napoli, it is time for Hamsik to move to the next level as he has the potential to play at the highest level.

Antoine Griezmann

The Atletico striker has continued his excellent club form into the tournament and it is only a matter of time when a bigger club comes knocking for the Frenchman.

Graziano Pelle

The Italian striker has been immense for Conte’s side and has adhered to his coach’s tactical instructions perfectly so far. Jose Mourinho would love to have someone like him in his team.

Toni Kroos

Kroos has been linked to Manchester United before but at the moment the German is at the peak of his powers and the English club should do everything in their powers to sign him.
