The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Old Trafford to continue long-term. The Portuguese has made a habit of only spending short tenures at his recent clubs, but there is clearly a hope that history will not repeat itself this time around.
Indeed, Man Utd’s recent decision to reward him with a new deal does point towards a desire to continue working together long-term, and that can only be a good thing for Man Utd.
Significantly, it appears as though the Man Utd brass are willing to do all they can to ensure that Mourinho is satisfied at the club, at least judging by a report from the Manchester Evening News.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Man Utd are willing to back Mourinho and his project with major funds this summer, with a few major signings apparently planned. The signing of a central midfielder and a full-back are apparently on the agenda, and the club are said to be keen to give Mourinho the resources needed to adequately challenge Pep Guardiola in the Premier League.
This will no doubt please Jose Mourinho, given that there are some clear deficiencies in the Man Utd squad at present.
Central midfield is certainly an area of concern, with the duo of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba not providing enough balance in the middle of the park at present. Likewise, a lack of genuine quality – particularly at right-back – demands improvement in at least one full-back spot, and so this is just what Mourinho needs.
Who they manage to land is anyone’s guess, but big plans are clearly in the pipeline.
Mourinho has already spent big at Old Trafford, but the task at hand cannot be understated.
He has turned the team into title contenders once again, and a few more major acquisitions will take them to that next level.
Good times are on the horizon for Man Utd if this report rings true.
