Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is expecting to do the bulk of his transfer business in the summer and feels the Red Devils will look to sell more than buy players this month.
As with most transfer windows, Manchester United have been linked with players from clubs across Europe in January, but so far they not made any concrete moves to sign players.
Morgan Schneiderlin is set to leave Manchester United for Everton after the two clubs reached an agreement and the Red Devils are also looking to ship out Dutch flop Memphis Depay this month.
And Mourinho feels the pattern for January has been set and Manchester United will look to be more of a selling club than one who look to buy players in the winter window.
He feels it is all about the accumulating funds for Manchester United for the real assault for top players in the summer transfer window.
The Manchester United boss told Portuguese broadcaster Sport TV: “I think in the winter market we will only sell and not buy, that’s my feeling.
“Let’s build the pounds to attack the market in the summer as we did [last year].
“We hired four players from the top level, whom we knew could help us.”
