Mourinho wants double deal with Bayern

According to Don Balon, who are renowned for making outlandish transfer claims, the Manchester United manager called the Bundesliga champions to discuss potential deals for attacking James Rodriguez and left-back David Alaba.

Mourinho is reportedly eager to add creativity and physicality to his squad after failing to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Rodriguez – on a two-year loan at Bayern Munich from Real Madrid – is likely to be the more difficult deal for Mourinho to land.

Bayern have an option to convert his loan into a permanent move for £36.7m (€42m).

A new left-back is high on Mourinho’s transfer agenda after muddling through the campaign with Ashley Young filling the position.

Alaba, 25, has established himself as one of the world’s leading left-backs but could seek a fresh challenge after winning seven Bundesliga titles.

Speaking in March, he said: “I am aware that this decision will come to me and I still feel very comfortable here, but I can also imagine taking a different path, taking the next step or looking for a new challenge.

“I am at an age where I have had a lot of experience and where I would like to take the next step in my career.”
