Following the appointment of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, it is expected that he would seek to sign the players he would want to work with.
It appears the new boss has hit the ground running, as it is now reported that he has spotted his transfer target. According to reports, West Ham youngster Reece Oxford has emerged as one of the Portuguese boss target.
The Express claims that Mourinho has given the club the go-ahead to place a £15m offer for the 17-year-old. Perhaps, the manager has spotted the centre-back spot as the position that needs strengthening ahead of next season.
Oxford meteoric rise coincides with that of his club, where he made 12 appearances in all competition, helping them to a sixth-placed finish in the English Premier league.
Although United were inarguably one of the clubs with the best defensive record last season, it takes nothing out of the fact that some of the defence needs some revamping. Daley Blind played alongside Chris Smalling for most part of the season, and this goes to show that more legs is needed in order to return to our glory days.
Although, he is predominantly a CB, he can also play as a DM, which makes him an asset to the club, considering that the likes of Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini could set for the exit this summer.
