Mourinho wants someone who will provide a solid cover in front of the back four and therefore, Manchester United are looking to sign a strong defensive midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Monaco’s Teimoue Bakayoko has been constantly linked with a move to Old Trafford as well. United tried to sign him in the winter window but the 22-year-old French international eventually stayed with the Ligue 1 side.
If the latest reports are anything to go by then Mourinho can finally agree his signing for the Red Devils by meeting Monaco’s very high asking price.
According to reports in France (FootMercato), the Les Bleus holding midfielder will be allowed to leave if a fee of 60 million euros ($63million) is met.
With 10 games to go in the French league this season, Monaco are currently sitting on top of the table, three points above reigning champions PSG and Bakayoko has been one of their top stars.
This season, Tiemoue has featured in 38 games for the French side, scored 2 goals and also provided an assist.
As per the provided FootMercato link, the likes of Chelsea and Juventus are also tracking the highly rated holding midfield star.
