Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan and has now sent scouts to watch him play against Atletico Madrid.
Mourinho is a huge fan of the Belgian midfielder as he can see the Roma star as the perfect replacement for Michael Carrick next summer.
The United manager are also watching several players such as Atletico’s Antoine Griezmann and £85 million-rated Saul Niguez.
According to reports, Mourinhoise sending scouts to games to look at a number players but mostly for Nainggolan.
“He is a big fan of his (Nainggolan).
“Griezmann was also looked at, but we know everything we need to about him already.
“They are going to go back in for him next summer, that’s for sure. The main thing is to replace Michael Carrick, though.
“Jose had wanted to sign Nainggolan as far back as his days at Chelsea, he is that big a fan.”
