Jose Mourinho, the Manchester United manager was present in Brussels to watch the match played between Belgium and Iceland. People were curious to know who he was actually scouting. Not even a single player of Manchester United contributed in the game when the home side was running out with a 2-0 win at King Baudouin Stadium.
Belgium’s best goal scorer Romelu Lukaku was not in the game after scoring 45 goals due to an injury that he suffered on Sunday during a match against Manchester City. Marouane Fellaini did play all throughout during the difficult time for close to 90 minutes but was out of the squad of Roberto Martinez in light during his recent break due to injury. As a result, it made Mourinho keep an eye on the next signings with Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham as his replacement in the backline of Belgian.
The manager of United was a bit frustrated when the owner of the club objected movement of the defender of Tottenham who was the top transfer choice of Mourinho during bid time in summer. Michy Batshuayi, the striker made the best use of his opportunity as he grabbed 2 deals which made the host achieve victory.
Mourinho’s top target for January transfer is Diego Godin, the center-half of Atletico Madrid. The defender from Uruguay has been offered with £20 m if he moved to Old Trafford. Manchester United has made attempts to bring Godin previously but did not succeed ever to obtain a deal.
