Mourinho already has a plan to replace key Man United star this summer

Jose Mourinho will look to lure Inter Milan’s Samir Handanovic to Manchester United this summer if David de Gea leaves and he is named Louis van Gaal’s successor, according to reports from BuzzSport.

The Portuguese tactician is thought to be the first in line to replace LVG if he is, as is expected, axed at the end of the season, with a ‘pre-contract agreement’ thought to be in place between the man sacked by Chelsea are the Red Devils.

One big issue that may face ‘The Special One’ early on is the future of De Gea, who has been linked with big name European clubs such as Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in recent times.

However, reports claim that Mourinho is already plotting for the Spaniard’s potential exit, with Inter’s Handanovic his top target.

The Slovenia international has emerged as one of the top stoppers in Serie A over the course of the past few years, and his exit could in turn lead to the Italians moving for PSG’s Salvatore Sirigu.
