Manchester United broke their transfer record to sign a world class midfielder in the form of Paul Pogba in 2016. Last year, they splashed more cash to lure a defensive midfielder in the form of Nemanja Matic.
However, it seems that Jose Mourinho is still interested in strengthening his midfield department and reports are linking United with not one but two Spanish stars.
The players in discussion are Carlos Soler and Sergi Roberto and the duo have a combined worth of €120million.
According to Diario Gol, Manchester United have been monitoring the situation of Roberto, who has not yet agreed a new deal with Barca.
It is mentioned that the Red Devils not only want to activate the €40million release clause but would also double the wages to secure his signature. The Spanish source further claim that the decision rests with Sergi, who is naturally a midfielder but has mainly played as a right back for the Catalan giants.
On the other hand, as per Don Balon, Mourinho believes that Valencia’s Soler has the talent to be a hit in the Premier League and the Portuguese boss thinks that United must get him.
The 21-year-old midfielder, who has scored 1 goal in 15 games for the La Liga club this season, has got a contract until 2021 and his price is €80million.
The likes of Carrick and Fellaini will likely be gone come next summer and the above mentioned duo would be quality additions if Jose can lure them.
