Forget James – Jose Ready to Agree $103million Signings for Man Utd

Manchester United registered their 14th draw of the Premier League campaign yesterday against relegation threatened Swansea side and the result is a huge blow to their hopes of finishing the season in the top four.

The Red Devils need massive reinforcements in the summer transfer window and are already linked with top quality players.

James Rodriguez has been in the limelight lately with Real Madrid looking to swap him in a deal to sign De Gea (via Don Balon).

However, in all fairness, Jose must hold on to David, who is arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and sign a playmaker who is not warming the bench like Rodriguez.

According to an exclusive report covered by Express, Jose Mourinho is ready to splash 80 million pounds ($103million) to capture Ligue 1 stars Blaise Matuidi and Bernardo Silva in the summer transfer window.

The 30-year-old Les Bleus star is a tireless midfielder, whose contract will expire in 2018. He has been the engine of PSG’s midfield department over the years and will be a top addition if Mourinho can lure him.

The French international can play anywhere in the midfield and also supports in the attack when needed. This season, he has scored 7 goals and provided 6 assists in 47 games under the management of Unai Emery.

On the other hand, Silva has been in fantastic form for Monaco, who are currently leading the Ligue 1 table. Bernardo is naturally a right winger but he can be deployed anywhere in the attacking third.

In 52 appearances for the French side, the 22-year-old Portuguese international has directly contributed in 21 goals (9 goals and 12 assists).

    What a scene it was, pathetic to see the display of Utd, and De Gea was standing in absolute attention. It looks like there is a curse upon the club, and the attitude of younger players to come down to help. Even young players like rashford are walking around like an old man. We are ready to comment about team relying on Zlatan, but we see the truth in this statement. A 35 year old can be fit and running all the 90 minutes. Some of our players are playing like they don’t have any inspiration to play. A serious evaluation has to be done. Even Jose would be blown if this is going to continue. It all began with David Moyes…, we hope it stops.
