In recent times, ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window, the Barcelona duo of Samuel Umtiti and Ivan Rakitic have been linked with premier league side Manchester United.
According to new reports, the club’s boss Jose Mourinho has asked the management to secure the services of both players when summer comes.
Manchester United are expected to splash huge cash to reinforce their squad at the end of this season. They are on the way to finishing this term without a big trophy as the premier league cup is obviously going towards Etihad.
In the Champions League, the red devils were eliminated by Sevilla in the last-16 stage, while a side like Liverpool could book a spot in the semi-final of the tournament.
Definitely, some changes must be introduced before next season and United must be ready to splash huge cash.
And Don Balon made it known that manager Jose Mourinho is aiming at signing two Barcelona players at the end of this season.
The duo of Rakitic and Umtiti have caught the attention of the Portuguese boss and he believes the presence of both of them at Old Trafford would get his side stronger.
After signing Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in recent transfer windows, Mourinho seeks to focus on his defense and midfield departments this summer.
