Mourinho understands that he can no longer raid rivals for top players

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that his side are no longer in a position to lure top talents from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.



The Red Devils have had recent success from luring players from their rivals with Juan Mata and formerly Robin van Persie making their mark with the club.

In a report on Sky Sports News, the Special One admits that United do not have the freedom to lure players from their domestic rivals just as Bayern Munich do with Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern have recruited the likes of Robert Lewandowski, and Mats Hummels in recent years, whilst Mario Gomez also arrived at the club only to return to BvB.

Mourinho is said to have already made up his shortlist for the summer with Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann and Benfica duo Nelson Semedo and Victor Lindelof at the top of his radar.
