Manchester United’s defence hasn’t looked great of late. Mourinho’s men conceded two against Sevilla to crash out of the Champions League, another two against Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace and have also shipped goals to the likes of Burnley and Bristol City this campaign.

But who does he want, and who could be available?
