United finished a disappointing sixth in the Premier League last season but secured Champions League football next term by winning the Europa League.
Mourinho, bolstered by the funds that playing at the very top level affords, is expected to be busy as he bids to assemble a squad capable of competing both at home and abroad next season.
After seeing the Paul Pogba transfer saga drag on all summer last year the Portuguese is keen to get his business done early this time around and is closing in on a new No.9 as he attempts to fill Zlatan Ibrahimovic's boots after last season's top scorer was released.
Wayne Rooney is also likely to follow Ibrahimovic out of the Old Trafford exit door with a number of other first team players such as Ashley Young, Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling possibly joining them elsewhere next season.
Take a look in the gallery above at who 10 players Mourinho could choose to replace them with.
