Jose Mourinho has plenty of work to do if he is to turn Manchester United into a dominant force at home and abroad again, so next summer’s recruitment will be key.
The club have shown a willingness to back their manager in the transfer market and that means that few players are beyond their reach.
According to reports in The Sun, Mesut Özil’s failure to agree terms on a new contract at Arsenal has put the Old Trafford outfit on red alert.
It is thought that Manchester United would be willing to pay the Germany international the £250,000 a week that he is seeking, a figure that his current employers are unlikely to match:

|11ST 13LB||WEIGHT||12ST 13LB|
|LL | RMD |||| RMD | LL|
|06/12 - 06/13||06/12 - 06/13|
The talented playmaker spent three seasons operating under Mourinho at Real Madrid, managing more top-flight assists than Cristiano Ronaldo in his final campaign at the club.
Able to see passes that others simply cannot, the 28-year-old would provide the Red Devils with the sort of creativity that they have been badly missing in recent times.
