Jose Mourinho is set to be backed with another war-chest this summer in a bid to close the gap on league leaders Manchester City.

The Portuguese boss has ruled out signing any more attackers and it is thought he will concentrate on reinforcing his defence and midfield.

According to the Mirror, Manchester United will attempt to sign Sandro, who is valued around £70million.

But to lower the price Mourinho wants to offer Matteo Darmian, who has been linked with a move to the Italian giants this week.

Sandro is said to currently earn £145,000-a-week which would be doubled if he agreed to move to Old Trafford.

United are not shy about splashing their cash as they gave Alexis Sanchez £600,000-a-week to move sign from Arsenal in January.

The Mirror add Mourinho is also planning on keeping Luke Shaw at the club.

The left-back was massively out-of-favour at the beginning of the former Chelsea boss’ reign, but he has now worked his way back into the team.
But Ashley Young’s days with the Red Devils are said to be numbered.

Meanwhile, United cemented their second place in the Premier League table by beating Liverpool 2-1 yesterday.

However, they remain 13 points behind City, who play Stoke on Monday
