Mourinho hints Man Utd not only focusing on Juventus star Pogba

Jose Mourinho has suggested that Manchester United have transfer options other than Paul Pogba.

The Red Devils are being linked with a world record £100million transfer for the Juventus midfielder but at this point in time, still nothing has been confirmed despite the fact United officials are in Italy to finalise a deal.

Regarding United’s pursuit of the French midfielder, Mourinho understands that the transfer market is a volatile beast while indicating that the Old Trafford outfit has other targets in mind apart from their number one priority.

“It is the power of Man United but it is also the power of football because in this moment the market is going in such a direction where I never know what is expensive, I never know what is cheap,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.

“Because what one season is very expensive, the next season is very cheap, so the market is going in that direction.

“We are in a comfortable position but we know what it is wrong and what is right. We know what the balance is and, I repeat, we are not going to be only focusing on one player.

“We are not going to be in the hands of one club that may sell and maybe doesn’t sell. We need a fourth player with a certain profile and we’re going to get it.

“Everybody speaks about one, but it wouldn’t be a surprise for me if it is not him and it is another one because we went for profile.

“We have two more options in front of us and we are going to close one.

“When you go to the market, you have other options. You cannot focus on one, so we are in a very comfortable situation.”
