Transfer: Rooney reveals how many signings Mourinho’s Man United need


Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney is hopeful that the club can sign one or two more players before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

United have found it difficult to close the gap between themselves and rivals, Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils finished 19 points behind City last season despite securing their best position since former boss, Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

Jose Mourinho’s side have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder, Fred, FC Porto defender, Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper, Lee Grant this summer.

However, Rooney is optimistic that United can get one or two more transfer deals done to add some more quality to Mourinho’s squad.

“I think it will be difficult after the season they had last year,” Rooney told Sky Sports.

“They [Manchester City] have been playing some great football.

“But I hope someone can catch them – it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can. I think maybe another signing or two.

“I am sure Jose (Mourinho) has been getting the team right. I know there has been a lot of talk about pre-season in the press but I am sure behind the scenes, Jose has been giving them the right amount of work.

“They have the game against Leicester on Friday so hopefully they can go one step further this year than second and try and get the title back.”
