Manchester United Hope To Hijack Another Club's Main Target
Jose Mourinho is an easy man to hate but if you asked Chelsea fans when he was their manager, and the same for Inter and Porto fans, they'd have told you how much they love him and at the moment Manchester United fans will be feeling the same way with the transfer window.
It's amazing just how quickly Mourinho went from the most loved man at Stamford Bridge, even when he was away from the club after his first spell, to being someone all the fans hated.
As soon as he joined Old Trafford he understandably became a Judas at Stamford Bridge but some have completely forgotten the good work he did before his sacking for the second time.

Obviously he became even more hated in the blue side of west London when his United signed Romelu Lukaku from under Antonio Conte's nose. Now the 'Special One' is hoping to make himself an even bigger enemy of another team by stealing their primary target.
According to reports in Italy, via Tutto Mercato, United have opened talks with PSG over the possibility of signing Marco Verratti and hijacking any hope Barcelona had of buying their top target.

Of course the idea of the Italian leaving the French capital seems unlikely as his club ruled out a move a while ago when he was linked with Barca and the player himself even said his agent had got things wrong.
If United are desperate to sign the 24 year-old then they could make a huge offer to try and tempt the oil rich side into selling and Tutto Mercato do claim it's Mourinho's 'dream' to have the player.
One thing that has added to the rumour, and made some United fans believe it's a possibility, is the fact that Verratti is reportedly on the verge of leaving his current agent in order to sign for Mino Raiola, the agent of Lukaku, Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Perhaps rumours of Verratti changing agent to Mino Raiola will help. His clients mostly end up at Man Utd :joy:- Nika Dozmina (@aijandz) July 18, 2017
If this one goes ahead then I will eat my hat, fortunately I only wear one type of hat...
