Manchester United will lock their horns against Newcastle United on this weekend in Premier League. They will be keen to get a win to cement their position at second place in the League Table. The combination of Sanchez and Lukaku will be a thing to watch out for the football fans in this match.
The Red Devils’ boss Jose Mourinho has explained why he will not be willing to sign another forward player in the summer transfer window after bringing in Alexis Sanchez. The news is a big blow to the Red Devils who were linked with a lot of star players in Europe.
The Portuguese boss was involved in a sensational deal with his bitter rival Arsene Wenger where a swap deal saw United gain Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez and Arsenal got Armenian superstar Henrikh Mkhitaryan. However, during the game against Tottenham, Mourinho’s Red Devils succumbed to a 2-0 loss at Wembley despite starting Sanchez, who made his debut in the Premier League for the Mancunians.
Mourinho admitted that is side need to be more dynamic, with forward players adapting to play anywhere in the front-line.
United were linked with a potential move for a number of world-class forwards in the likes of Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, Atletico Madrid’s Antonine Griezmann, Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic and so on, but it seems to be cleared up that Mourinho is very pleased with the strike force he has at his disposal.
Not to forget, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata, who can also support the attack in different ways from a winger’s position or from the centre of the pitch, to add more threat to opposing defenses. And with Paul Pogba operating in the heart of United’s engine, they can seem to take down any team.
United have already spent a lot on their attack force and have arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, but one area of concern that Mourinho may have to take into consideration is the defensive issues, including the wing-backs as he prefers playing Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young, who aren’t naturals in that position.
