Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has stated his transfer ambitions ahead of this summer's transfer window. The Portuguese head coach is expected to be busy in the transfer market with the club's hierarchy having offered a £200m war chest to spend on fresh recruits.

The Express says the 'Special One' is set to revive his interest in Everton defender John Stones, a player whom he missed to sign during his time at Chelsea.

Stones, 21, had a below-par season in the Premier League last term, but this has not deterred interest from his suitors.

Nevertheless, Mourinho could face competition from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, who are looking to reshuffle their backline ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Everton currently value Stones at £40m, but this could go down, should the player reveal his intent to leave Goodison Park.
