Jose Mourinho confirms plans for two major signings
Carrick is set to retire from professional football and join Uniteds coaching staff, while Fellaini is expected to leave on a free transfer.
The Belgium international is entering the final two months of his contract after rejecting a contract offer from the club and United chiefs are resigned to seeing him leave.
And Mourinho has now confirmed that he will spend the bulk of Uniteds budget on the middle of the park, while he expects several more players to leave the club.
We are going to invest the basic to improve our squad, Mourinho said. We need to find a replacement for Michael Carrick, if Marouane Fellaini leaves, we need to find a replacement for Marouane Fellaini
There is always in the group of players, in the squad, there is always a player or a couple of players, they are not playing a lot, and they will try obviously to leave.
So we are going again to touch our squad and to believe that more than spend, spend, spend, is probably the evolution of our players.
We have some young players that need to get with both hands opportunities with their evolution, so lets see.
But in this moment, I dont even think about next season or the final, I think about Arsenal because we need one point to finish top four but we need seven points to finish second and we deserve to finish second and we have to finish second.
