Well, just two days after the hectic summer transfer window has closed, Manchester United are already planning ahead with the next twelve months in sight. Jose Mourinho has made a stunning start to the season, but he wants to add one more marquee signing next year.

The attacker is a well known Manchester United fan, and this may sway the deal if clubs do come in with a reasonable enough offer for the 25-year-old who is emerging as one of the best players on the planet.
