Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has strengthened his relationship with agent Vadim Shablii, with The Sun claiming that the Portuguese trainer is eyeing up one of the Ukrainian’s clients – Dinamo Kiev star Andriy Yarmolenko.

The Red Devils were active in the summer market, adding Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to their squad ahead of this season.

However, this new quartet is expected to be followed by more stars in the next couple of transfer windows, as Mourinho looks to get the famous Premier League club back into contention for major silverware.

Yarmolenko is a player that has repeated been linked with a move to English football, but for one reason or another a deal has not been ironed out.

The 26-year-old has starred for club and country over recent seasons and would add penetration and skill on either flank for a Premier League suitor.

With Mourinho being pictured on social media with Shablii, talk in the British press is growing that Yarmolenko could well be the next international star to join the Old Trafford revolution under the Portuguese trainer.
