Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has disclosed that he needs two more players to complete the club’s transfer activities before the close of transfers this summer.

The transfer window closes in less than three weeks and Mourinho wants to bolster the squad before that happens.

The club has already secured Fred for 52 million pounds from Shakhtar Donestk, Diogo Dalot for 19 million pounds from Porto and goalkeeper Lee Grant from Stoke City.

But the manager seems unsatisfied with the shape of the team.

However, he told ESPN, “One thing is what I would like. Another thing is what is going to happen.”

When further asked about what he would like to do before the end of the transfer window, Mourinho said,  “I would get two more players.”

He also spoke about full-back, Antonio Valencia’s calf injury against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

Recall that United are presently in the United States for pre-season.

Mourinho said,  “I don’t think he (Valencia) will be available to play any one of the three matches of the International Champions Cup.

“It’s not a moment to take any risks. Antonio is a player that’s not a young boy anymore. We have to take care of him and to try to have him ready for the start of the season.

“We bought a fantastic player [Diogo Dalot]. Young, 19 years old, but I think probably the best right-back at that age in European football.

“But he had a surgery last May and is recovering for that, so one more reason to take care of Antonio.”
