Fresh off their impressive 2-0 victory over Premier League leaders Chelsea at the weekend, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly set his sights on two world class strikers to bolster his squad for next season's campaign.

19-year old forward Marcus Rashford was one of the stars of the show at Old Trafford on Sunday as Mourinho's Manchester United earned a huge win over the Portuguese coaches former side.

However, Rashford has struggled to replicate the form which earned him high praise during his breakthrough season last year and with the future of the ageing Zlatan Ibrahimovic unclear after the 2016/2017 campaign is over, Mourinho is eager to add some more firepower to his arsenal up front.

Mourinho looks to improve Manchester United attack

As expected Manchester United have been linked with an array of strikers over the last few months but according to the Daily Mail, Mourinho has now identified two big money targets he wishes to bring to Old Trafford as the Summer transfer window draws closer.

Mourinho publicly criticized Manchester United's lacklustre attack recently, blaming the side falling to yet another draw in a game in which they dominated on the lack of "killers" at his disposal.

With the Manchester United board proving over the last few seasons that they're not afraid to spend big, it seems as though the Special One is looking to bring in the Premier League's current top goalscorer Romelu Lukaku from Everton and Atletico Madrid and France star Antoine Griezmann, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils for a long time now.

Manchester United will have to spend big to get the men Mourinho wants

Griezmann has stated in the past that he is happy with Atletico in Spain, however, many suspect that the Frenchman won't be able to refuse the type of money that the big-spending Manchester United will offer him.

Whilst the acquisition of Lukaku should prove to be a little easier for the League Cup winners. Lukaku made it clear a few months ago that he is looking for a move away from Goodison Park at the end of the season in the hope of taking the next step up in his career

Despite Mourinho targeting the pair, bringing both players into the club could prove to be difficult even for the deep-pocketed Manchester United board.

Lukaku previously stated that one of his main reasons for wanting to leave Everton was to play in the Champions League, something which Mourinho can't promise either him or Griezmann as the Red Devils currently sit fifth in the Premier League (one spot outside of a Champions League qualifying place) although they could still gain entry to the competition should they win the Europa League this season.

Despite being 35-years old, Ibrahimovic has been a stand-out performer for Manchester United this season. However, the Swede is yet to commit his future to the club past the Summer with rumored interest coming from Major League Soccer.
