Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that it is time for the club to focus on other positions beyond the attack in the transfer window.
The speculation surrounding United never dies down, even when the transfer window is closed.
But Mourinho wants fans and the press to know that he is not chasing any more attackers, given the number of players at his disposal after the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
“That’s the point, that’s the objective. The objective is that now we have one, apart from Zlatan Ibrahimoivc but let’s forget Zlatan for the moment, we have only one number nine and from having only one number nine now we have more number nines,” said Mourinho.
“We have Alexis, we have Romelu Lukaku, we have Martial, we have Rashford. Rashford can play on the left and on the right, Alexis is exactly the same, all of them apart from Lukaku can also play from behind, they can also play as a second striker.
“It’s bad for you because you like to have things to write and things to speculate especially in the summer, but I don’t want attacking players so don’t speak about attacking players coming here because nobody is coming here.
“Juan Mata, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, Alexis … I don’t want attacking players so for speculation in the summer you have to go to other areas, but for attacking players I am really happy.
“We have to improve not in the quality of the players, we have to improve in the dynamic of the team and in the efficiency because even on Saturday it was a game to score more goals than two.”
