The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to another summer of activity. Close-season transfer windows have been an exciting time for Man Utd fans as of late, with each manager following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson given free reign to spend big at the helm.
Jose Mourinho has taken that spending to the next level, with big names like Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba coming in over the last few years.
Now it seems as though he wants a few more, with the Portuguese recently stating his desire to replace Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini this season, with the former set to retire and the latter’s contractual situation still unclear.
Jose Mourinho says #MUFC need to sign two midfielders this summer, if Marouane Fellaini leaves.
“We need to find a replacement for Michael Carrick. If Marouane Fellaini leaves, we need to find a replacement for Marouane Fellaini.”

That would certainly require quite the investment from Man Utd, given how important each of those players has been over the years, but fortunately for Mourinho, there is a ton of top talent on display in Europe that could plug the gap perfectly.
He needs to choose wisely, though, as the manager knows all too well that a poorly chosen replacement could have a big impact next season.
With that said, here are three potential midfield solutions for Jose Mourinho…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
