Jose Mourinho says he and his scouting team have identified the players Manchester United will target in the summer.
Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin and a host of youth team players left United in a rather quiet January transfer window at the club.
Speaking on Tuesday to reporters ahead of his side's clash with Hull City, Mourinho said he was looking to make signing in the summer as he is contended with his players.
“We are more focused on the summer period,” said Mourinho.

“There is no point in me speaking about the next transfer window when we have so many matches to play, so much to fight for, so many good players to work with.
“If you ask me 'do I know what I want for the next transfer window?' yes I know. Is it possible to get? I'll try, always, to be realistic.
“I remember years ago when I was asking for a second goalkeeper, my technical director gave me a list of possible second goalkeepers and the first name was Gianluigi Buffon!
“But I'm always realistic, always try to give options that are gettable, but we'll have time to speak about that in the summer.”
United have been persistently linked to Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Tottenham forward Harry Kane.
