It is no secret that Manchester United are interested in making a move for Paul Pogba but it seems like he is not the only Frenchman Mourinho is interested in. Reports claim that Mourinho is preparing to also make a move for Blaise Matuidi.

According to The Sun, Mourinho is potentially plotting a complete overhaul of the Manchester United midfield, with up to eight players expected leave Old Trafford in the transfer window to be replaced by Pogba and Matuidi in the squad.

The French pair were left extremely heartbroken on Sunday night after losing the Euro 2016 final to Portugal in Paris, and they will certainly need some time to get past the disappointment.

The Portuguese coach has already signed Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer, and according to The Sun, they could be on the verge of completing a mega-money deal for Pogba with Real Madrid dropping out of the race to sign him as reported by Sky Sports earlier today.

On the face of it, adding two experienced and quality midfielders such as the former United starlet and Matuidi would improve the squad at Old Trafford.
