Here are the top rumours:

Jose Fonte enjoyed a memorable summer helping Portugal win Euro 2016, and he has returned to find himself linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Mourinho has signed his four top targets, but speculation suggests he wants to add one more defender to strengthen competition for places.

Fonte, who captains Southampton, formed an impressive partnership with Virgil van Dijk last season and Saints boss Claude Puel is keen to keep him.

Monaco’s Brazilian full-back Fabinho was linked with Manchester United earlier this summer and the rumour still has traction.

Mourinho has been starting Antonio Valencia at right-back, but the former winger is not a natural defender.

Consequently press speculation continues to mention Fabinho as a potential option, with the Monaco man a reported £29m target.
