After United’s 2-0 victory over city rivals City in pre-season, the Red Devils boss stressed the importance of signing more players.
At the end of 2016-17, Mourinho revealed he wanted four new players, but Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof are the only arrivals so far. United have been heavily linked with Inter winger Ivan Perisic and Nemanja Matic, while Paris Saint-Germain full-back Serge Aurier has emerged as a possible target.
Asked about United’s transferplans, Mourinho said: “I don’t know, I don’t know. I’m not in control of that, the credit of Lukaku, Lindelof to be here on time, the credit is not mine, it’s Ed Woodward and I thank him for that fantastic work to bring us two very important players for us.
“But we need a bit more and when you see the other teams in the Premier League, the way they get players and good players and you see the champion to buy three fantastic experienced players, City go to the market, Liverpool and West Ham get Joe Hart, Chicharito and Arnautovic, West Ham wow, they play to win the Premier League too so the teams are fantastic in the market and I’m waiting for a bit more.”
