Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is not one for being denied what he wants. When appointed at Old Trafford last summer he informed Ed Woodward of the four signings he wanted and he got them, no questions asked.
Well, with his second summer window as Red Devils boss fast approaching, the former Chelsea boss is beginning to throw demands about once again, however this time they’re not directed at Mr. Woodward.
Mourinho’s former employers, Real Madrid, have long been chasing a deal for David de Gea and, according to reports from The Sun they’re back in for the £60m rated man this summer.
Whilst Mourinho and his staff will be keen to keep the shot-stopper, if he must go the Portuguese manager has laid out exactly what he wants in return from the Spanish capital, in the form of two players.
First up is French defender Raphael Varane, who made just shy of 50 appearances under the United boss at Madrid and is closing in on 200 for the Champions League winners, aged just 23.
The second player is where it gets interesting. Spanish striker Alvaro Morata is a top target at Mourinho’s old stomping ground Stamford Bridge, however, that hasn’t stopped him from demanding the former Juventus hitman is also involved in the deal.
