Breaking: Man United boss set to complete first January signing

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho allegedly expects the club board to deliver him a defender in the winter transfer window.

The Portuguese was left frustrated over the clubs failure to do so in the summer, and considering that they have gone on to concede as much as 17 goals in 10 Premier League matches, that would say that his worries were warranted.

As per the Manchester Evening News, Jose Mourinho now expects a solid defender to join the side in January to address the issue, with Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld tipped as the most likely answer given various other transfer targets have rejected the swoop or are otherwise unavailable.

Considering his experience of playing in England as well as the high quality that the defender possesses coupled with his contract situation could lead to a reduced fee, the Belgium international defender could be a decent addition for him.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have also received a huge boost as they’ve been mentioned as favourites to land £100m-valued starlet Jadon Sancho, according to Teamtalk.

The 18-year-old starlet, who is an ex-Manchester City youth academy product, is enjoying a good season at German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund thus far, netting five goals and creating eight assists in 13 matches across all competitions as the player continues to prove that with playing regularly, he’s surely worth the investment.

Whether the player is valued the £100million valuation is another argument entirely, but the report would claim that the 20- time English champions have a great opportunity of bringing him back to the Premier League.
