Mourinho targets former Man Utd colleague De Gea

Mourinho’s Roma ambition

Jose Mourinho was announced as the new boss of Roma and is targeting some big moves this summer.

The Portuguese coach failed to win a trophy for the first time at a club after he was sacked just days before the League Cup final with Man City by Spurs.

He is seemingly intent on not letting this happen again with his second spell in Italy.

There are a number of players who he could go for but Italian media suggests that initially keeping Edin Dzeko will become a priority.

The Bosnian striker has a year left on his deal. Henrikh Mkhitaryan has his deal expire this summer but there is hope he may also stay.

The targets: De Gea, Isco & Trincao

Mourinho is also looking to pillage his former clubs.

Manchester United and Real Madrid where he was once manager and Barcelona where he spent time as a young coach may all be in the sights of Mourinho.

David De Gea has struggled for regular game time in Manchester since he lost his place to Dean Henderson.

The England international had an impressive loan spell with Sheffield United last season and carried that form into United when called upon.

Real Madrid’s Isco is in a similar situation having fallen out of favour with Zidane and whose position is not a utilised role with no presence of a number 10.

Trincao from Barca is the most intriguing however. Having only recently arrived from Braga, Trincao hasn’t yet lit up the Camp Nou but is still highly regarded and fully fledged Portuguese international.

This may well likely be a loan to give him regular minutes at a top European club before returning to the Blaugrana.

Nathan Ake is another player said to be in the mind of Mourinho. The Portuguese is keen on the Dutchman and his competition from Ruben Dias, John Stones and Aymeric Laporte means he may be open to leaving for more regular game time.
