RUMOURS: Manchester United to make January move for Jose Fonte
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will make Southampton central defender Jose Fonte his first January signing, according to a report in the Sunday People.
Reports have been circulating for some time about Fonte being a target for United but as we approach the January transfer window, rumours of a switch to Old Trafford are only likely to intensify.
32-year-old Fonte has 18 months left to run on his current contract at St Mary's and turned down a pay rise offered to him after returning from a triumphant Euro 2016 campaign with Portugal.
Fonte says he was offered a wage increase but not a new contract extenstion and that stumbling block could see him looking for a move away in January.
