The Man United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would love to see him at Old Trafford…
Over the summer, Man Utd proved that they are still the biggest draw in world football following the capture of Paul Pogba from Juventus – who was undoubtedly Europe’s most in-demand player.
That success has made the punters in the Tavern think that Mourinho could land any player that he wanted to in world football, but it would appear that that is simply not the case.
According to the Daily Star, Mourinho has set his sights upon Barcelona star Ivan Rakitic – and the Portuguese boss has been firmly shot down by the midfield maestro.
They report that whilst Mourinho sees Rakitic as a replacement for Michael Carrick, the Croatian midfielder has no interest in leaving the Catalan giants; leaving Jose Mourinho to look elsewhere as he looks to continue his Man Utd revolution.
This is a huge blow for the Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern, many of whom tout Rakitic as one of Europe’s best midfielders. With Pogba, Schneiderlin and Fellaini all struggling – Mourinho desperately needs to invest in reinforcements in the middle-of-the-park – and Rakitic could have been perfect.
Since moving to Barcelona, Rakitic has proven himself as a key part of the side’s midfield – and has won everything there is to win. From the Champions League to La Liga – Rakitic has won it all.
Our landlord thinks that Man Utd could really do with a player of his experience and his quality in their midfield.
