Mourinho hot on BVB star
Manchester United is looking for reinforcements for the defensive. Borussia Dortmund’s defender Sokratis will also be in the sights of Jose Mourinho.
Team manager Jose Mourinho of Manchester United will upgrade his defensive.
The English newspaper Mirror brings BVB professional Socratis Papastathopoulos into play as a possible reinforcement. Mourinho is supposed to watch the Greek national player for a long time and see good chances to sign him.
An alternative is reportedly Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham Hotspur. But also Samuel Umtiti, the French central defender in the service of FC Barcelona, is supposed to arouse desires in the “Red Devils”.
Mourinho would like to take advantage of its 60 million euro opt-out clause this summer, writes the Barca-near newspaper Sport, but the Catalans are already in advanced talks with Umtitis advisors about a contract extension.
The current contract of the 24-year-old, who switched from Olympique Lyon to the Catalans after the Euro 2016 European Championship for 25 million euros, runs until 2021.
The situation is different with Sokratis. The 29-year-old is only bound to Dortmund until 2019.
