Indeed, the Portuguese tactician recognises the fact that his midfield has looked disjointed at times throughout the current campaign, and he is determined to put this right come the opening of the transfer window.
Blaise Matuidi is considered unsellable by Juventus directors Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici, which has forced Mourinho and his colleagues to search for alternative options. Real Madrid superstar Toni Kroos has now emerged as a potential target, with his long-term future in the Spanish capital said to be in doubt.
Similarly to Mourinho, Los Blancos president Florentino Pérez has set his sights on conducting a revolution of Zinedine Zidane’s playing staff which inevitably means that some high-profile names will be heading for the Santiago Bernabéu exit door.
