Corriere dello Sport reports that Mourinho is looking to strengthen his midfield with an eye-popping offer for Marco Verratti.
Josè Mourinho hasn’t been at Old Trafford long but he’s already looking to make his mark on the United first team. First he secured a deal for Eric Bertrand Bailly from Villareal for €40 million and then he began his pursuit of Ibrahimovic. Now, according to Corriere dello Sport, the Red Devils are poised to blow PSG out of the water with a nine-figure offer for Marcio Verratti.
The Italian comes highly recommended by Zlatan, the two of whom remain good friends after their time together in France. Verratti is signed up to stay there for the time being after renewing his contract until 2020, but if United put together an offer of the sort discussed in Corriere, even the super-rich Parisians would struggle to say no.
