Man Utd boss Mourinho targets 2 defensive signings - at least

Published on: 24 May 2017

Manchester United are ready to cast a wide net to bring in two defensive signings this summer.

United boss Jose Mourinho is searching for a replacement and the Daily Star claims Real Madrid's Raphael Varane and Brazil international Marquinhos, who plays for Paris St Germain, are potential targets.

Former United defender Michael Keane could be an expensive option to bolster the club's defence, with the Sun reporting Sean Dyche has warned that Burnley are prepared to play hardball even though it would risk the England international leaving on a free next summer.

Luke Shaw could also be allowed to leave Old Trafford, with reports yesterday suggesting that the left-back could be used as 'bait' for United to land Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker.
