Mourinho after Milan centre-backs

Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to show him the money in January if they are genuine about keeping him in at his post.

United are a bit of a mess, with Mourinho’s side seven points off Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea following a turbulent summer during which Ed Woodward decided that he is better qualified than the manager to judge defenders.

In a stunning turn of events, it seems that a chartered accountant is in fact not the best person to oversee a Premier League club’s recruitment, so Mourinho wants the situation rectified sharpish. Especially since he’s running out of midfielders to play at centre-back.

To pacify the manager, Woodward will have to take his chequebook to Milan. According to ESPN, Mourinho wants Inter’s Milan Skriniar and AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli – and neither will come cheap.

The manager is hoping that Woodward will be more willing to splurge on the Serie A-based pair due to the fact they are both 23. The vice-chairman would be entitled to ask what has become of the last 23-year-old centre-back he spent £30million on a year ago. Or the 22-year-old he spent a similar amount on a year prior to that.
