According to latest transfer reports at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho has been informed by the Manchester United board that he must sell players before he can buy new ones during the upcoming January transfer window.
Jose signed the trio of Romelu Lukaku (from Everton), Victor Lindelof (from Benfica) and Nemanja Matic (from Chelsea) during the past summer transfer window, but couldn’t seal a deal for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic.
The former Chelsea boss appeared to have moved on from signing Ivan, but he would still like to bring in a creative player into his team so as to bring down Man City from the top of the premier league table.
The Old Trafford club have been linked with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil for some time now, and they could move to bring him over in January, instead of waiting until the end of the season.
However, the former Real Madrid player is likely to go for something in the region of £20million, and Jose will need to let go before he can bring the German in.
Who is the player the manager is likely to offload?
The former Southampton defender is obviously the one most likely to leave Old Trafford when January comes, as it is glaring he has no future at the club.
He has made just two appearances so far this term, and has been linked with a move to Tottenham to reunite with his former manager Mauricio Pochettino at the London club.
