Man Utd transfer news: Jose Mourinho closing in on £80m double deal

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Jose Mourinho is closing in on deals for Alex Sandro and Joao Cancelo.

The Red Devils will splash the cash this summer, with United desperate to keep up with Manchester City next season.

Pep Guardiola’s men stormed to the Premier League title this season, with United finishing 19 points behind their arch rivals.

And according to the Daily Mirror, Mourinho is looking to overhaul his defence at Old Trafford, with his full-backs the major issue.

They say United are closing in on Juventus left-back Sandro in a £50m deal, while Mourinho is also debating a £30m bid for Valencia’s Cancelo.

The Mirror add that Mourinho is eyeing Southampton’s Cedric Soares as well as Cancelo, who spent this season on loan at Inter Milan.

Manchester United stars Luke Shaw, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian are all likely to leave Old Trafford this summer to free up space for new signings.

Red Devils boss Mourinho has been vocal about his summer transfer plans, with the Special One claiming earlier this year that he’ll look to tweak his squad.

"We are going to invest the basic to improve our squad," he said.

"There is always in the group of players, in the squad, there is always a player or a couple of players who are not playing a lot, and they will obviously try to leave, so we are going again to touch [tweak] our squad and to believe that more than [a case of] spend, spend, spend, is probably the evolution of our players.

"We have some young players that need to get, with both hands, opportunities with their evolution, so let's see."
