This season so far, Manchester United are finding it difficult in scoring more goals. The Red Devils’ return of 22 in the Premier League is fewer than any of the sides above them.
Therefore, a wise action Mourinho is expected to take is to get a player good in scoring lots of goals, or one that makes it easier for those around him to score. This therefore strengthen the link United have with West Ham star Dimitri Payet.
According to The Mirror, United boss Jose Mourinho wants the £35m-rated Payet at Old Trafford. Additional, French news outlet Le10Sport, claimed that West Ham may be open to a deal – so long as Anthony Martial heads in the opposite direction as a direct replacement.
The Frenchman has been outstanding so far this season. He has 55 chances created and 33 take-ons so far. He’s completed 38 take-ons, made the same number of shots and notched five assists. Therefore, his goals and assists return of seven means he’s been directly involved in almost 40% of his side’s goals in the league, despite missing two matches.
Indeed, this man might be the one Jose Mourinho really need in his team. The Portuguese tactician has the players capable of scoring often in the persons of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford, among others, but just needs to get the right supply to them.
