According to a recent exclusive from The Daily Star, Manchester United are set to confirm Jose Mourinho as their next manager within the next few weeks – bringing the announcement forward from the end of the season because The Special One’s contract has been leaked in his native Portugal.

And the British tabloid further claim that the Red Devils plan to kick off the Mourinho era at Old Trafford by issuing him a £300million transfer budget for the coming window. United may be without the incentive of Champions League football this summer, but that’s more than enough moolah to make potential transfer targets forget about Europe’s top competition for a season or two.

With that in mind, Football Fancast have drawn up a list of SIX superstars Mourinho could lure to Old Trafford for precisely that sum. Well, just short actually; according to valuations recently mooted in the tabloids, this shopping list would set United back exactly £296million. That leaves £4million in short change to buy a few unknowns, splash out on a new yacht or bribe Sepp Blatter with.
