Jose Mourinho is desperate to add attackers on Manchester United as he is now prepared to swoop Brazilian star Malcom in January.
United are set to receive a £80 million budget for the January transfer window and they want to make every player count.
The 20-year-old Malcom appears to be Mourinho’s top target because of his attacking versatility.
Mourinho has been using Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford on the left although both player prefer to play centrally.
Malcom’s ability to play out wide is a major selling-point for Mourinho.
“Even when I was at Corinthians these rumours were already happening,” Malcom said
“I have a calm mind about that, I have a focused thought on the pitch and I leave it to my agent and my family to take care of.
“Then, who knows, if a bid comes up I’ll think of leaving, but now I’ll just playing football.”
