New manager Erik ten Hag is said to be open to the idea of bringing in new options at right-back meaning both Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could depart, and both could be of interest to Mourinho according to reports.

It comes as Erik ten Hag’s three-point criteria for any new signings has been revealed. And the Red Devils have been urged by former England goalkeeper David James to hijack Manchester City’s move for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Mourinho plots raid

Reports coming out of Italy suggest the Portuguese boss has an eye on both United players, with potential loan moves with the option to make the signings permanent being rumoured.

It appears Mourinho wants fresh options in the right-back position after playing Rick Karsdorp in the role for most of the season, as Ainsley Maitland-Niles struggled to make an impact during his loan spell from Arsenal.
