United boss Jose Mourinho have been offered the chance by super-agent Mino Raiola to sign a new holding midfielder to partner Pogba. Mourinho has been struggling to get the best out midfielder Paul Pogba with the Portuguese boss tinkering with a 4-3-3 formation in recent weeks after Pogba complained of not having enough freedom when he is playing in a midfield two.

Jose Mourinho ruled out the possibility of signing any more attackers in the summer but is compelled to reconsider his decision especially with Michael Carrick hanging up his boots to join the United coaching staff.

According to reports from Rai Sport, Mino Raiola, who also represents Paul Pogba, has offered his client Blaise Matuidi to Mourinho as the solution to his problems.

The Juventus midfielder has played alongside Pogba with the French national team and will make a perfect partnership with the 24-year-old United midfielder.

The 30-year-old moved to Turin from PSG last summer and has given a number of stellar displays in a Juve shirt this season, earning the trust of his bossn Allegri. Raiola has been in constant contact with United about the prospect of bringing another of his clients to Old Trafford.
