It is being reported that Mourinho is keen to make Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema one of his first signings and the Frenchman is as short as 1-2 to join his former Real Madrid boss at Old Trafford.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains the talk of the town and bookmakers appear convinced the Swedish superstar is about to take the Premier League by storm. The 34-year-old, who is out of contract after four years at Paris St-Germain, worked under Mourinho at Inter Milan and is apparently very sweet on the idea of coming to the Premier League. He’s not a backable price though, at 1-10.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting that Mourinho faces a battle to secure the signing of Everton’s central defender John Stones with Barcelona and Manchester City also keen on securing the services of the 21-year-old. Stones is 4-5 to join the ‘Pep revolution’ at City and 11-10 to choose the red side of Manchester.
Staying in the north west, Frank de Boer is reportedly keen on taking over the hot seat at Goodison Park. However, the former Ajax boss is only rated a 4-1 chance by bookmakers who think Manuel Pelligrini (best odds 7-4) is the most likely replacement for Roberto Martinez.
The race to sign Romelu Lukaku is well and truly on but Chelsea have reportedly told Everton to forget their £65m asking price. The 23-year-old has looked disenchanted with life at Goodison Park for a while now and, despite the club's having very different ideas about valuation, the Belgian striker is odds-on (best odds 8-11) to be plying his trade at Stamford Bridge after the summer transfer window.
