Cape Town - Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is thankful to the club for signing three of his transfer targets, but admits he would still like a fourth.

The Red Devils have brought in striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton, midfielder Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, and defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica this transfer window.

Mourinho is still in the hunt for Inter Milan's Ivan Perisic but United have thus far failed to prise him away from the Serie A side.

Mourinho said, as quoted by the Independent: “The squad is good and, as I told a few months ago, I was hoping for four players to improve the squad. 

“The club did a fantastic job, absolutely fantastic, by getting three of them, which is difficult in the crazy market where we are now.

“To get three out of four, I thank the club for that. I would be happier if they gave me four of four but they did a great effort for me.”
