Manchester United officials may still be working on the final details of Paul Pogba's incredible £112million transfer from Juventus but it appears Jose Mourinho has already moved onto other things.
Speaking in his first press conference as United manager on July 4, the Special One claimed he was looking to bring four senior players to the club this summer. He had already sealed two in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly and was well on his way to a third, Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Mourinho said once the fourth deal was done – now known to be Pogba – he could start to relax and prepare for the Premier League campaign. According to The Sunday Times, the Portuguese has since changed his mind and is now looking for a fifth addition.
Having examined the Manchester United squad in more detail, the former Chelsea manager has decided he wants another experienced centre-back to shore up what he deems to be a fragile defence.
He has three targets in mind, each of which will cost vastly different sums of money. But as Pogba's world-record deal has shown us, money is one thing they are not worried about at Old Trafford.
Zenit St Petersburg's Ezequiel Garay was perennially linked with a move to Manchester United whilst at Benfica but that speculation ended when he completed a big-money move to Russia. However, Mourinho is threatening to dust off the old scouting reports and make a move for the Argentinian.
Countryman Jose Fonte is also a target after his impressive display at this summer's European Championship with Portugal. Southampton would be reluctant to sell a senior player after another summer of change at St Mary's and the 32-year-old is contracted until 2018.
Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci completes the list but will be by far the hardest to negotiate. Firstly, the Serie A club won't want to sell because they have already lost Pogba while the £60m price tag might prove too rich even for Ed Woodward.
