Jose Mourinho targets Juventus ace Paul Pogba as part of three huge Man United signings

JOSE MOURINHO is targeting Paul Pogba as the first of three big signings he intends to make as Man United boss.

The Special One wants a new centre-forward, a central midfielder and central defender to kick-start his reign, according to respected journalist Duncan Castles.

And Mourinho has pinpointed Juventus star Paul Pogba as someone to strenghten United’s spine after dithering saw the club lose ex-Benfica ace Renato Sanches to Bayern Munich

France midfielder Pogba has “informally” been made available by Juve and Mourinho has been promised “complete backing” from executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in the transfer market.

But his modus operandi is not to change too many players in a single window and it is believed he will work with most of the squad inherited from Louis van gaal.

That does not rule out a sensational move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who claims to have already made a decision on his future.

But it is feared talks with the out-of-contract Swede’s agent may have hit a snag and that Mourinho could be looking elsewhere for a younger “top striker”.
