Manchester United have reportedly made enquiries for Chelsea French midfielder, Ngolo Kante for a possible summer transfer.
This is coming in the wake of the hammering meted out to the Old Trafford faithful by city rivals Manchester City a week before the international break.
A midfield without Paul Pogba was easily bossed by the likes of Fernandinho, David silver and Bernardo Silver. A situation Mourinho is eager to avoid in the future.
The Manchester United manager is therefore in search of a combative midfielder following the consistent lackluster performances by Fred and the lack of speed by Nemanja Matic.
Knocking on the door of Chelsea to enquire about Kante seem like a very good thing to do but securing his services is another thing altogether.
The 27-year-old world Cup winner has been a regular for the Blues since joining from Leicester City three seasons ago. His form this season has helped Chelsea to an undefeated start to the campaign in all competitions.
It is unclear if Kante will depart Chelsea for another Premier League club like Manchester United. PSG and Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the player.
In football anything is obtainable. Kante might decide that the Theatre of Dreams is the place to achieve greater things in his career.
