Jose Mourinho watched former side Chelsea lift the title yesterday after winning their 30th PL game of the season. On the other hand, his Man United team finished 6th. After spending heavy cash on top quality players last summer, the Red Devils have finished no fewer than 24 points behind the champions and that is just not good enough.
Jose needs to step up big time next season and is ready to splash more cash to further reinforce his squad this summer. If reports in the media are anything to go by then the former Blues boss is once again interested in Nemanja Matic.

But the Swede sent some United fans in to a frenzy on Instagram after posting a video of himself walking in a swimming pool with the caption: "Ready for the final."
