Jose Mourinho asks Borussia Dortmund about Marc Bartra’s situation – report

Jose Mourinho has asked Borussia Dortmund about Marc Bartra’s situation at the club, according to reports.

The Portuguese boss is a big fan of Bartra from his time managing in Spain with Real Madrid, and he was heavily linked with an Old Trafford move when Mourinho first took over last summer.

He was sadly involved in the attack on the Dortmund team bus in March after the coach carrying the Dortmund players to the Westfalenstadion was shaken by a number of explosive devices.

The Champions League last-16 first leg between Thomas Tuchel’s side and Monaco had to be postponed by a day and although there were no severe injuries, Bartra was one of the two casualties and was rushed to hospital.

He underwent surgery on a fractured wrist and returned to action against Werder Bremen on the final day of the Bundesliga season.

Bartra has returned back to his best and it seems Mourinho could be interested in bringing him to Manchester United as he looks to bolster his defensive options.

Man United have already signed Benfica centre-back Victor Lindelof but the Portuguese boss may look for options as he hopes to turn the side into title contenders in the Champions League and Premier League.
