Manchester United need to be busy in the summer transfer window and Mourinho must sign quality stars to reinforce the squad for next season.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are linked with two top players in the form of Brazilian midfielder Fred and Belgian defender Alderweireld.
According to Mirror Sport, Manchester United are moving closer to agreeing the signing of the Shakhtar Donetsk star (Fred) for €59m. On the other hand, the British source have mentioned that Jose Mourinho is also keen to finalize the €51m capture of the Tottenham Hotspur center half (Alderweireld).

The Old Trafford club do need a creative central midfielder to partner the likes of Nemanja Matic and record signing Paul Pogba in the center of the park. Someone like Fred, who can be deployed anywhere in the midfield, will be perfect for United’s Portuguese boss.
As per the provided The Mirror link, the Selecao star wants to showcase his talent in England and his move to Man Utd is likely to be completed soon.
As far as Alderweireld is concerned, he is arguably one of the best central defenders in the Premier League. Under the management of Spurs boss Pochettino, the former Atletico Madrid CB has proved to be brilliant.
United had the second best defensive record in the recently concluded Premier League campaign, so, they already have a strong back line and if Alderweireld does end up finalizing his move to Old Trafford then the department will surely be stronger.
