Jose Mourinho And Man United Not Dropping Plans For Late Fonte Swoop


FONTEManchester United remain in the hunt for Southampton captain Jose Fonte.

The Daily Record says Fonte, the subject of a £9million offer from Everton earlier in the summer transfer window, has asked Southampton to honour a gentleman’s agreement that he be allowed to leave the South Coast club should the 32-year-old be offered significantly superior financial terms elsewhere.

Earlier this month the Portugal international stated that he felt “flattered to be associated with a club like Manchester United“.

In an effort to make room for the new central defender, United have been working on a deal to sell Marcos Rojo to Valencia as one replacement for Arsenal-bound Shkodran Mustafi.

Rojo rejected a lucrative offer to join Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG earlier in the window in favour of remaining in European football.
