Jose Mourinho Predicts A Player Who Could Be Man United's Saviour Next Season

According to Jose Mourinho, this player will be Manchester United's savior next season. 

Manchester United has been a shadow of its former self ever since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down as manager nearly a decade ago. 

David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are the four top-tier managers who have tried and failed to turn around the club's fortunes. This, however, has never been more than wishful thinking. 

After finishing in sixth place in the Premier League last year, the Reds made Erik ten Hag their new manager. With only six weeks until the start of the new season, ten Hag is already hard at work preparing his team for a successful debut. 

The engine room and the center of his defense have been singled out by the Dutch commander for reinforcements in advance of the next campaign. 

Ten Hag put Ajax defender Jurrie Timber on his defensive wish list after Timber's stellar performance at the Johan Cruyff Arena last season. 

But he isn't putting all his eggs in one basket; if his chase of the middle block doesn't play out, as the reports suggest, the new manager sees an option in Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt. 

Before the 2019 transfer to Juventus, Ten Hag coached de Ligt at Ajax, where the young phenom was a player. 

Never let it be forgotten that a goal scored by de Ligt in 2019 was a major factor in Ajax's run to the Champions League semifinals, where they ultimately lost to Tottenham Hotspur. 

Former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho praised the 22-year-old after seeing him play against his former team. 

Mourinho has talked highly of Matthijs de Ligt, and he is fantastic and has showed tremendous maturity, which might save United if they are unable to get Jurrie Timber. 

When queried about De Ligt's age, Mourinho responded, "In a funny sense, I only think he is 19 years old when I look at his face," according to a story from beIN SPORTS from just over three years ago. Having met him, I can say that I am very impressed by his level of maturity. 

I think it's safe to infer that his IQ is through the roof. Personally, I think the kid is fantastic.
