Jose Mourinho has already given the names of his summer transfer targets to Manchester United’s board and says it is now up to Ed Woodward to get them.
Asked about his summer plans yesterday, Mourinho said: “The only thing I can tell you is the job of my board is going to be difficult but at the same time it is easy.
“It is easy because I give them names. I am not giving them qualities or positions. I give them names – the difficulty is to get the names. So it is easy in one way but very difficult in another.
“Normally the perfect market doesn’t exist. It is very difficult to get exactly what you want, especially nowadays.
“But we want to improve. We need to improve for the next step.”
