With Matteo Darmian seemingly on his way out of Manchester United we take a look at four players who Jose Mourinho may be looking at to replace the Italian right-back.
At 28 years of age Coleman is player who is at the peak of his powers. His ability to bomb forward up the pitch combined with excellent reading of the game makes him arguably the finest right-back in the country and is one which would undoubtedly strengthen United’s back four.
Should United sign the Everton star, Mourinho wouldn’t be getting a player for the future nor a player whose best footballing days are long behind him he would be getting a player ready for the here and now and that is what Mourinho do desperately needs if he is to take Manchester United back to the top.
Arguably Arsenal’s standout performer so far this season, Hector Bellerin is very much a wanted man. Having joined Arsenal back in 2011 he has since gone on to become an integral part of Arsene Wenger’s side fast becoming a fan favourite at the Emirates.
Thought to be attracting interest from a top clubs from around Europe United would undoubtedly face tough completion for his signature but should Mourinho manage to persuade Bellerin to make the move to Old Trafford he would without question be a vast improvement to what he already has.
With Carvajal reportedly unhappy at the Bernabeu it could provide Jose Mourinho a perfect opportunity to make a move for the right-back in the coming months.
The Spaniards outstanding tackling combined with his terrific work rate on the field makes him one of the finest right backs in European football and is one which makes him such a unique player.
It would no doubt prove a difficult task signing Carvajal from Real Madrid given the clubs previous antics with the La Liga club but should United manage to sign the Spaniard he could go a long way to solving Jose Mourinho’s defensive concerns at Old Trafford for years to come.
It has been no secret that Jose Mourinho has been an admirer of Fabinho for some time now. Thought to have had bids turned down for him in the summer the Brazilian is said to be Mourinho’s top transfer target when the market re-opens in January.
Able to play in a variety of different positions across the back four Fabinho can offer plenty of versatility to Manchester United and is a player who would without question walk straight into Mourinho’s starting eleven.
