Jose Mourinho is weighing up a £30 million offer to land Portuguese full back Nelson Semedo from Benfica, according to reports in Portugal.

Portuguese paper O Jogo suggest that Mourinho is determined to shake up his defensive options this summer, having already added to his back line with the arrival of Victor Lindelof, also from Benfica.

Semedo, 23, has made 64 appearances for Benfica since 2015 and is being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

The Benfica full back has also attracted interest from many top European clubs including Barcelona, however, talks have broken down between the two clubs, which could allow United to sneak in.

Reports suggest Mourinho will be looking to offload defenders before making anymore defensive signings with Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian both rumoured to be allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer, with Everton and West Brom keen on taking Smalling away from Manchester.

Sociedad reportedly agree deal to sign Januzaj .
Real Sociedad’s interest in Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has been well documented in the last few weeks, and it appears as though a deal is edging closer. According to a report from France Football, a fee of €11m has been agreed between the clubs over the impending transfer of Januzaj and it looks as though the Belgian is set to finally land his move away from the club. The winger, who was once tipped for big things at Old Trafford, has endured relatively unsuccessful loan spells at both Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland in recent seasons. His exit has been on the cards for some time now and it seems as though he’s set to make the switch to Spain as he looks to revitalise his career. Januzaj has undoubted talent and still remains a promising player, but he simply couldn’t cut it at United and will hope to make the most of his opportunity if the deal with Real Sociedad goes through.
