Jose Mourinho: Manchester United need a big transfer window again

by Tanveer Arayan


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insists the club will need to spend big this summer to improve the squad ahead of next season.

The side currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, four points off fourth-placed Manchester City, with a game still in hand.

Mourinho could still get Man United their main aim of a Champions League qualification as they face Anderlecht in the Europa League Quarter-final on April 13.

Speaking after the Sunderland victory, Mourinho believes there is still much left to improve.

“We had just one transfer window, we didn’t use the second transfer window [in January]. We need a big transfer window again,” he said.

“We have far to go. When you’re speaking about the 20-game unbeaten run, if you were speaking about just three more victories, then it would be different.

“I’m not talking about winning four, five, six or seven more games, just three. Against Bournemouth, we missed a penalty. Hull crossed the midfield line once in 94 minutes. Both games were zero-zero.

“And there were other games like that. With just three more victories, we’d be quite stable in the top four with two matches in hand and playing to finish second or third. So what we have now is not bad at all — details make it look worse than it really is.”

Mourinho’s side are currently on a 20-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, but if they were able to convert more of their draws into wins, then they would be sat comfortably inside the top four.

The Portuguese boss splashed out £157 million on transfers following his appointment at United last summer, and if he’s looking for a big transfer window once again, fans are in for an exciting summer.
