Manchester United have endured a frustrating start to Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese boss, sacked at Chelsea last December, took over from Louis van Gaal in the summer, in a move which filled many United fans with optimism about the next few years.

After beating Bournemouth, Southampton, and Hull in their first three games, that positivity was vindicated, but a recent run of poor form has somewhat dampened those high spirits.

Mourinho’s side have won just one of their last seven league matches, and suffered disappointing defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea in that time, as well as a woeful 3-1 loss at Watford.

Although their Europa League form has picked up after their 1-0 defeat at Feyenoord in their opening match, United fans expect better from their side in the league, and will hope to see their team climb the table in weeks to come.

They currently sit eighth, eight points off the joint-leaders City, Liverpool, and Arsenal, and Mourinho may already be considering transfer targets as he looks to bridge that gap to the top three.

Thus, he may look at Premier League players in a bid to strengthen his side, and may even look at neighbours City to see what they’ve got available.

So, here are TWO City players he may look to lure to Old Trafford in January…
