Manchester United boss Mourinho does not think he will make a fourth summer signing

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has this afternoon admitted that he does not expect to complete another signing this summer.

Arrivals

The Red Devils have thus far secured the signings of three players during the transfer window, in the form of Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku.

A fourth arrival at Old Trafford has long been touted, with Jose Mourinho known to be on the lookout for another winger.

Heavy links with Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic have come and gone, with the Nerazzurri’s tough negotiation tactics having seen the transfer eventually fall through.

Plans

Despite the club’s failure to secure Perisic, it was still widely expected that United would push to bring in at least one more player before the close of the transfer market next week.

However, speaking ahead of his side’s matchup with Leicester City this evening, manager Jose Mourinho admitted that while he is in fact in the market for a fourth signing, it looks highly unlikely as things stand.

‘Everyone knows I would like a fourth player and I can’t hide that because I had it in my mind.’

‘But I am happy if I am not going to have [a fourth player] and I don’t think I am going to have.’

‘And I was the first to tell my board not to feel any kind of pressure from me in that respect, but probably next summer, I have to try to get a player for a position that I think can make us stronger.’
