Jose Mourinho sees “difficult season” for Manchester United If more quality players are not added to the team.
United have only made one significant summer signing so far – midfielder Fred – with young defender Diogo Dalot and backup goalkeeper Lee Grant also making moves to Old Trafford.
United has been linked with a multitude of players like Leicester’s Harry Maguire, Barcelona’s Mina and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld to bluster their defense.
But, speaking before Sunday’s friendly clash with Bayern Munich, Mourinho admitted to MUTV that he fears falling behind the rest of the top six if he is ultimately unable to add to his squad.
“My CEO knows what I want for quite a long time,” Mourinho said.
“He knows what I want, I know that he tries to do the best for me and I still have a few days to wait for what is going to happen.
“The other clubs who compete with us are really strong and have fantastic squads, like Chelsea, Tottenham or Manchester City, or they are investing massively like Liverpool, that are buying everything and everybody.
“And if we don’t make our team better it will be a difficult season for us.”
