Manchester United striker wish list: Jose Mourinho eyes January signing

13 January 2018

Jose Mourinho has lined up Jamie Vardy and Manchester United former player, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez in addition to Alexis Sanchez ahead of January's transfer.

The Red Devils are reportedly looking for a back-up option to Romelu Lukaku, with former Sweden worldwide Zlatan Ibrahimovic back on the sidelines due to injury.

Manchester United are understood to have made a £25million offer to rival Manchester City's hunt for the Chile global.

Jose Mourinho would be open to bolstering his attacking options this month, although a left back remains his priority, and Hernandez and Vardy have emerged as targets on top of Alexis Sanchez, according to the Telegraph.

The former prime minister of Haiti also blasted Trump's remarks as "a new low" in a tweet Thursday night. Durbin said the president "said these hate-filled things, and he said them repeatedly".

The Daily Telegraph understands United will have to stump up £35m to match Leicester's valuation of Vardy, who turned down a move to Arsenal in favour of signing a new contract in the summer of 2016.

But he would want to play more than a bit-part role following a disappointing spell at West Ham under Slaven Bilic and later David Moyes.

Lukaku enjoyed a stunning start to his career at Old Trafford, scoring 11 goals in his first ten games following a £75m move from Everton, but has netted just three league goals since mid-October.

While he would probably be keen on a return to United, it would be something of a gamble and there's no guarantee he could recover the form that made him such a hit with the Red Devils.
