Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has restated Ed Woodward’s role as negotiator for the club.
The executive vice-chairman has fulfilled only half of Mourinho’s desire to bring four players to the club. Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku have arrived in big money deals, but the Portuguese has revealed he still needs a wide player and a midfielder.
When asked how the transfers were progressing, Mourinho said: “I don’t know, honestly, Ed is in control, he did Lindelof and Lukaku, he knows that I would like two more players but he also knows that I have balance.
“I depend on the situation, the market, and if my club is unable to do two players and just one, I accept that as a consequence of the market now.
“Our relationship is good and I just wait for good news, and good news is to have the players, maybe just the player as soon as possible because to work together with the team is really important.
“But I’m calm, I like my players, I like my squad, I trust them, so I’m calm and that’s important.”
