Why Man United's Hierarchy Vetoed Jose Mourinho's Targets

Why Man United's Hierarchy Vetoed Jose Mourinho's Targets

Manchester United started the window showing real intent: the purchase of Brazil midfielder Fred set pulses racing, but the subsequent buys of Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant meant that their business, upon the close of the window, was largely poor.

Indeed, there isn't a lot for Man United supporters to be optimistic about right now, as they're set to play Leicester City in the Premier Leaguein the opening day and get set in a season which some have even suggested that'll struggle to achieve top-four in, let alone win the league title.

But it gets worse. According to The Guardian, the Man United chiefs - who had previously put their hand in the pocket for Jose Mourinho - opted not to back the manager on this occasion.

Chief football writer Daniel Taylor writes: "United's conclusion was that in most cases Mourinho had targeted defenders who were no better than those they already had."

Taylor added: "The suspicion of United's hierarchy is the manager is taking a short‑term view rather than thinking more strategically about what would be better for the club in the coming years."

Yerry Mina, Toby Alderweireld, and Harry Maguire were all linked with a move to Old Trafford, but nothing marterialised, with the fees being way too high.

Do you think Man United can achieve top four this season? Let us know in the comments section.
