Jose Ready to Sign $158,000-a-week Star for Manchester United

Manchester United have got more than a few quality central defenders in the team but Jose Mourinho still wants to further reinforce the back line.

Not to forget, the Portuguese manager signed Eric Bailly last year and lured Victor Lindelof this year.

If the latest reports are anything to go by then the former Chelsea boss wants to re-unite with David Luiz, who was recently axed from the Blues squad when they faced the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge.

According to an exclusive report covered by Daily Star, the 30-year-old Brazilian defender is unhappy with the way he is being treated at the moment and Jose is ready to step in to sign him for Manchester United.

Mourinho was in charge of Chelsea when the Samba star was sold to PSG back in 2014. After that, Mou managed the club to win the 2014-15 title.

Luiz was brilliant for the Blues in their title winning last campaign under the management of Conte. This season, he has scored 2 goals in 12 outings (all competitions). His current contract with the club will expire in 2019 and he earns around $158,000-a-week (Star)

As per the provided Daily Star link, Chelsea would like to sell David overseas but a move to Man United is possible taking into consideration that they sold Matic to the Old Trafford club in the summer transfer window.

It is mentioned that the Stamford Bridge club would like to get at least a fee of £34million, which is the amount they paid to re-hire him from PSG last year.
