Jose Mourinho eyeing move for 'world class' winger, not Rodriguez

Jose Mourinho eyeing move for world class winger, not Rodriguez

Brahimi to United?

Manchester United has set his sights on signing Porto's Yacine Brahimi, who currently has a £51m release clause on his contract.

The Algerian international has been linked with a Premier League move for a while with Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton among his previous suitors.

According to The Mail, Mourinho has switched his attention towards Brahimi as he seeks to recruit a world-class left-sided winger to his ranks.

Kylian Mbappe has been on the Red Devils' radar for the past month or so, but a deal looks highly unlikely with Monaco wanting a world-record £100m for his signature.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Real Madrid are also in the hunt for the French sensation, who is likely to leave the Principality outfit in the summer.

Brahimi, formerly of Granada, had been keen on pursuing a Premier League move last summer, and his latest extension would allow Porto to command a reasonable price for his sale.

The talented winger also possesses the ability to play upfront or in the attacking midfield, and his versatility is something Mourinho favours in his squad.
