Jose Mourinho says there is no chance of Manchester United looking to add an attacker in the summer transfer window after snapping up Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January.
Sanchez netted his first goal for the club in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford, following in with the rebound after Jonas Lossl had saved his penalty.
And Mourinho has stressed that the versatility of the Chilean, as well as that of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, means he has no need to head into the market for another forward in the summer despite early links to the likes of Neymar, Antoine Griezmann, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
“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.”
And Mourinho added that such a raft of options insures there is no need to buy more forwards come the end of the season.
“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.”
