Mourinho set to clash with Manchester United over failure to land transfer targets
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is on a collision course with the club’s owners over their inability to land his transfer targets.
Mourinho feels that the Glazer family are trying to do business on the cheap, despite spending over £100million to land Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof this summer.
The Portuguese is a big fan of Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, but United were reluctant to pay the £48m asking price and now the Serie A club have closed the door on any deal.
“There has been no more significant contact in the last few weeks,” Inter boss Luciano Spalletti said, before their Saturday victory against Chelsea in Singapore.
“So for me the conversation is over.
“The more days that go by, the more difficult it becomes for us to replace him and, therefore, I would strongly oppose his departure.”
Mourinho also wants to bring in Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic, but has been frustrated by United’s reluctance to meet the champions’ £40m asking price.
It has gotten to the point, where he is wondering whether the Glazers would be willing to spend £100m on Gareth Bale, should Real Madrid make him available.
