Jose Mourinho has revealed he will wait to see if key Manchester United players can shake off injuries before making transfer plans.

The January window opened on Monday and United have been linked with a host of players across the Premier League and beyond.

Mourinho is currently without crucial Red Devils such as Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and admitted he could be forced to dip into the transfer market.

But, after beating Everton 2-0, Mourinho insisted he was awaiting injury news before deciding whether to splash the cash.

‘I don’t know about transfers,’ he said after the 2-0 win against Everton.

‘In this moment we are in trouble, in 2-3 weeks time maybe we recover and we breathe in a different way.

‘It wasn’t a performance of tired boys, with the worst possible calendar that you gave us.
