Matteo Darmian wants to leave amid Juventus & Inter links, admits Jose Mourinho

Posted July 26, 2018

Mourinho is keen to splash the cash in the coming weeks, with the Special One revealing he is keen to make two more signings. "Another thing is what is going to happen".

Mourinho signed Brazil global Fred in a £52m deal from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakhtar Donetsk this summer to improve their options in the middle of the park.

The departures of Martial and Valencia is a further blow to Mourinho who has cut a frustrated figure in the United States.

I don't know if he fancies to be back for that and put himself to be available for the team or stay on holiday.

Even if the extension materialises, Jose Mourinho will still have an unhappy player who wants to leave and who doesn't want to go overseas.

"No", he said when asked if he was content with the group he has in California. I want to follow on from the number of games I played last season, keep kicking on and helping the team and hopefully win some trophies. It makes no sense for him to come to the U.S.

Marcos Rojo sustained an injury at the World Cup that has left Mourinho uncertain as to when the Argentina man will join his team-mates in training. He's with the medical department, in contact since the World Cup, where he ended the World Cup with some physical problems.
