Man United ready to break the bank for £30m target, a huge favourite of Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is willing to meet the £30m valuation Valencia impose on midfielder Andre Gomes as he plots his overhaul at Manchester United, as reported by the Sun.

The Portuguese has been strongly linked with a move for the 22-year old midfielder over the course of the last few months, though Italian giants Juventus are also believed to be keen.

Italian news outlet Gianlucadimarzio.com claims Los Che are not interested in structured payments for the Portuguese international, meaning the financial might of the Manchester giants could out muscle the Old Lady.

Both Mourinho and the midfielder share an agent in Jorge Mendes and the former Benfica man boasts the sort of dynamism so often lacking in the engine room of the Red Devils this season.

Following his seismic arrival at the Theatre of Dreams, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is widely tipped to undergo a major overhaul on the side that has struggled so much in the vacuum created by Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.
