Jose Mourinho says United will prepare to spend big in the summer, rather than January. AFP

Jose Mourinho admitted that he is expecting a quiet January transfer window, but says that United plan on saving in order to "attack in the summer", with Antoine Griezmann a possible target.

The Manchester United manager is not convinced that the January transfer window is the right time for Manchester United to buy players and suggested that his side will look to sell, rather than add to the squad.

In an interview with Portuguese television channel 'Sport TV', the Manchester United boss said: "I am convinced that in this winter market we will be sellers and not buyers.

"We want to raise pounds to attack in the summer, as we did this year with the contract of four players".

United are expected to sell midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin to Everton, after agreeing a fee of £22m with the Toffees. Meanwhile, Bastian Schweinsteiger is free to leave the club and Memphis Depay may also leave Old Trafford in the current transfer window.

Judging by what the Portuguese manager has said, United are planning another summer of spending and Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann is thought to be the number one target.

The Red Devils are also thought to be interested in a central defender and will possibly sign a holding midfielder to replace the ageing Michael Carrick.
