Man United boss Mourinho makes signing Arsenal star his top priority - report

The Red Devils should still have enough quality to edge the game, and they're wise not to risk Pogba given his importance to the side, but until he is able to return it will be more difficult for them to pick up the results they need to stay in the title race.

Mourinho made no secret of his desire to sign four players over the summer, though only managed to bring in three - notably missing out on Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic.

He has registered four assists and netted once in his 11 La Liga appearances this season, starting every match as Valencia have climbed to second in the table, and can provide a much-needed creative spark.

Carlos Soler's buy-out clause is 80 million euros; he renewed terms with the coastal club in May.

According to reports in the Independent, his versatility along with his age could be exactly suited to the type of player Mourinho is looking for, but his price-tag may be an issue. It's worth noting that various newspapers have linked United pair Matteo Darmian and Marouane Fellaini to Valencia in recent weeks.

It was also reported that a number of Championship clubs are interested in signing Mitrovic in January after a potential move to England's second division fell through in the summer.

Newcastle are expected to have money to spend this January, as a takeover of the club by Amanda Staveley and her firm PCP Capital Partners is thought to be happening before the New Year.

Even though he is just 20, the Spanish under-21 international has shown many qualities United lack as well as a maturity, and would likely cost around £40m.
