There has already been plenty of speculation about what Manchester United will do in the upcoming January transfer window.
The absence of the French star due to a hamstring problem has suddenly seen United forced to play a much less expansive game without his passing, having left Mourinho with few alternative options in midfield.
United, in second place, trail neighbours City by eight points after 11 games and were beaten 1-0 by champions Chelsea in their last outing before the worldwide break.
Even if things go spectacularly well for Manchester United, they will be neck and neck with Pep Guardiola's side.
After spending big in the summer, Jose Mourinho isn't expected to splash the cash too much in January, but there is talk that he has set his sights on one player in particular.
This explains recent reports regarding Luke Shaw, who is apparently available for 20 million pounds.
After enduring a hard return to Old Trafford last season as the-then world's most expensive player, the 24-year-old as began this campaign in explosive fashion scoring twice and assisting three times in the opening four games. Undefeated Los Che are in second-place, four points behind Barcelona, and have been playing a very exciting brand of football.
UNITED will reportedly focus all their efforts on landing Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler.
According to Delaney, Mourinho has "become increasingly concerned on how injury to Paul Pogba has had a greater effect on his whole team". However, The Independent claim that United plan to offer Andreas Pereira (who is now on loan with Valencia) in part exchange for the Spanish Under-21 worldwide.
Valencia find themselves in a fair amount of debt and a Champions League spot this season would be huge.
