Matthew Upson Back Jose Mourinho Who Support Five Signings To Fight For The Title

That is according to BBC Radio 5 Live pundit and the Stoke man Charlie Adam. The Manchester United team finished a grand 19 points behind the Premier Manchester City, the League champions of last term. This summer, Mourinho has secured the deals for Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred however; he is still chasing moves for minimum of two more players.

Ivan Perisic and Harry Maguire both are high on his target list, however, the transfer window is closing on next Thursday, and it seems the time is not on the side of Mourinho. According to Midfielder Adam, United has to make more than two signings as quick as possible. When Adam was asked this question, how many players Mourinho really need for the title change. And he replied “Five, easily”.

“The team requires a new left-back, a holding a midfielder and a center-half. Somehow, they are required to get the best out of [Alexis] Sanchez. So, the team needs another behind [Romelu] Lukaku?” Matthew Upson, the former star of West Ham agreed with the take of Adam on Mourinho requires someone to play off Lukaku.

Upon said “I am in favor of Adam and I too think the same way, because when you talk about [Marcus] Sanchez, Rashford it is a distinctive role and also a key role.” Matthew Upson further added that, you are the focal point and you are leading that line. “When you are playing constantly, rushing around the spaces and the same is your position; to go and switch to that, it is not that easy. I saw the try of Rashford and do it in Brighton away and for him, it was a disaster. It is such a key part in how they play to hold the ball up, but you feel that he needs another player behind Lukaku to lead the line.”
