Jose Mourinho To Sell Two Key Players In Man-U, Wants Fresh Faces

Daley Blind and Juan Mata will be high-profile victims of Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Manchester United this summer, this is according to Sky Sports News HQ.

It is believed Jose Mourinho will approve the sale of both players this summer should United receive acceptable bids, with the expectation he can sign players to directly replace them.

Mourinho sanctioned Juan Mata’s sale to Man Utd from Chelsea in January 2014, despite the Spaniard being named Chelsea’s Player of the Season six months earlier. Mourinho was unhappy with Mata’s work rate and pace, and also held doubts about the his tactical suitability for his preferred system – it is understood he has not changed his mind since.
Meanwhile, Blind does not fit the physical profile Mourinho looks for in his central defenders, deeming him also surplus to requirements.
The former Chelsea boss has a history of signing tall, fast, strong central defenders, such as Kurt Zouma and Raphael Varane.
