The Portuguese is desperate to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window. And after a challenging summer, he is seriously supported by Ed Woodward. Reports have suggested that a 100 million pound transfer kitty could be on the cards. Mourinho was desperate to sign a center-back this summer. The attempts to catch Milan Skriniar, Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Diego Godin and Jerome Boateng, however, proved unsuccessful. According to the Italian news business Calciomercato, Mourinho was ready to concentrate on Ajax Wonderkid Matthijs de Ligt. However, another blow to the transfer plans of the former Chelsea boss De Ligt is ready to move to another location. It is suggested to change Juventus, and it seems increasingly likely. The league heavyweights Barcelona are also snooping, but Juve has the upper hand. Manchester City has also seen its progress, but is well stocked on the back. Former Ajax star Arnold Muhren says De Ligt – and his team-mate Frenkie de Jong – would be brimming with the Red Devils squad. "There are two [Dutch] Good enough players – Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt, "he said to Omnisport. You can play for Man United without any problems. "Muhren insists that De Ligt Mourinho's defensive problems at Old Trafford would be solved, adding," At United you've tried several center-backs. Why could not De Ligt play there? "He's proven he's strong enough, he's still young enough to grow." He would gain much more experience with United. "United are still looking for the ideal center-back, De Ligt would help United to shine in." And United can rest assured that a player can play there for years. "United announced himself at City in the Manchester derby tomorrow, Mourinho's men secured a stunning 2-1 victory against Juventus earlier this week in the Champions League.
