The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern keep telling us that they need to sign more midfielders.
After Marouane Fellaini was sent off against Liverpool, they have been left short for today’s clash against Swansea due to injuries.
And the United fans will be cheering in their booth when they hear the news that Jose Mourinho is ready to splash the cash on a midfield revamp this summer.
According to The Express, Manchester United will raid Ligue 1 in an attempt to land two highly rated midfielders this summer in a combined £80m swoop.
PSG central midfielder Blaise Matuidi is one of the names on Mourinho’s wishlist.
The Frenchman is reportedly keen to join international team mate Paul Pogba in Manchester United’s midfield despite being offered a new contract with the French giants.
It is understood that Manchester United have already enquired about the 30-year-old with a price in the region of £30m being touted.
The other player they want to bring to Old Trafford is Monaco play maker Bernardo Silva.
The 22-year-old is believed to be available for £50m with Monaco expecting him to leave this summer.
Manchester United will, however, have to fend off interest from Real Madrid if they are to bring the Portugal international to the club.
