Manchester United closed the gap on their top 4 rivals after beating Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford 1-0 yesterday.
On the other hand, West Ham United stayed out of the relegation zone by earning a hard fought point against Liverpool at Anfield.
The Red Devils are heavily interested in signing West Ham star playmaker Dimitri Payet who scored a fantastic free kick goal against the Reds.
United wanted him last summer as well but the French international stayed with the Hammers. Last month, Mirror reported that United are once again looking to sign the 29-year-old playmaker who is rated around 35 million pounds (€42million).
Recently, as per reports going on in the media (Daily Mail), Payet can be lured for just 15 million pounds (€18million) if Slaven Bilic’s men are relegated this season.
West Ham finished 7th in the league last season thanks to Dimitri’s brilliant performances and he is vital if they are to survive relegation this season.
It is highly unlikely that United will wait for next summer to strengthen their attack. Mourinho needs reinforcements as soon as possible and he must splash the cash to lure the Les Bleus star in the upcoming January transfer window.
