Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho's 8-Man Defensive Shortlist

Jose Mourinho Manchester United 2017-18

The Portuguese tactician is believed to be on the lookout for a central defender after Sweden global Victor Lindelof, who has been linked with a move to Everton, struggled to adapt following his 2017 move to Old Trafford from Benfica.

Sandro, was tipped to sign for United in the January transfer window, however, a deal wasn't agreed.

Manchester United are not interested in pursuing a deal for Juventus left back Alex Sandro, according the Manchester Evening News.

However, a report from the Manchester Evening News claims that Alderweireld isn't Mourinho's number one target despite negotiations starting with Spurs.

MEN also say that Mourinho is likely to move for a younger, cheaper alternative to Sandro, 27.


Mourinho knows he needs to strengthen his squad if United are to compete for top honours next season having finished a whopping 19 points adrift of Premier League champions Manchester City last season.

Fred was captured walking normally out of his hotel on Monday which is a positive sign for supporters of Brazil and United, but it's unknown whether he'll be fully ready right from the get-go this summer.

Last week United announced they had reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for the transfer of Fred, whose full name is Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos, and that "a further announcement will be made in due course".

Fred is part of the Brazil squad for the World Cup and is expected to have a decent tournament as he looks to establish himself on the global stage.
