Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hinted that he will be happy only if there are atleast two more signings during the course of the summer transfer window. The Portuguese manager, for now is content with the acquisitions made by the club but also points out the fact that the hardwork is only half done.
The Red Devils have signed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku from Benfica and Everton respectively and Mourinho is positive that more of his six transfer targets will join in during the course of the transfer window.
Mourinho is thought to be on the lookout for a defensive midfielder in order to give Paul Pogba a free role in midfield and is said to be interested in Chelsea's Nemanja Matic, who incidentally has not been traveling with the Chelsea squad on the pre-season tour.
Speaking about Nemanja Matic as his probable next signing and more signings to follow, Mourinho said to Sky Sports, "He [Matic] is a Chelsea player. I can't (speak about him). We have to respect the player and the club, the owner, the manager. We don't have our door closed. We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof. We need more."
Pointing out that he gave Ed Woodward a list of four probable signings with alternatives, Mourinho claimed, "We wanted four, so I could say 50 percent of the job is done, but I won't say that because it's so difficult. I wouldn't like to be in Ed Woodward's position, negotiating, because everything is really difficult."
Speaking realistically at the end of the interview, the Portuguese manager concluded, "Maybe we don't get two, maybe we got one, but we need one to give us more options and balance. We have players in the squad that cannot play football for the next few months; players like Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young. So I don't want to say Matic or any other name because I don't think it's correct to do it."
