Mourinho Rules Out Sanchez Replacement In January

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is not guaranteed a new signing in January by the club’s board following Alexis Sanchez injury.

Sanchez has been ruled out for around six weeks with a torn hamstring on Friday.

“Honestly, I don’t think we are going to sign (anyone),’ said the United manager, who has made a new centre-back his priority,” Mourinho was quoted on The Daily Mail.

 

“If we do, I would say one player. I don’t see us going more than that.”

 

On Sanchez injury, the former Chelsea manager said: “From my experience, I would say he (Sanchez) is not playing this year.

 

“Just the painful scream and the way the injury happened, I know it’s going to be for a long time.”

 

United will face Southampton at St Mary’s in Saturday’s late kick-off looking to step up their challenge for a top-four place following last weekend’s disappointing draw with Crystal Palace.
