Jose Mourinho says he is ready for the task of rebuilding Manchester United, insisting: “I am where I want to be.” The new United boss added: “I think it is a job everyone wants and not many have a chance to have and I have it.” Mourinho, who succeeded Louis van Gaal, said he had targeted four big signings and had secured three of them.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly are already at the club, while United have also had a bid accepted for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan. “We decided four targets,” said Mourinho, 53. “Until we have the fourth, we are still working hard. The third player will be official soon.” France and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, 23, has been heavily linked with a return to the club he left in 2011.
Mourinho said he was “frustrated” United are not playing in the Champions League next season but insisted he was at Old Trafford to win trophies. United, the 20-time English champions, finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
