Manchester United prioritise three key positions for the summer

According to The Sun, Manchester United want to make additions in three specific positions over next summer. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to have talks with the club hierarchy to identify possible transfer targets.

The three positions they are looking to strengthen are centre-back, right-wing and centre-forward.

In defence, the need for another quality centre-back has been evident, someone who can partner Harry Maguire. The club are said to have a five-man shortlist which includes Jules Kounde, Sergio Ramos, Tyrone Mings, David Carmo and David Alaba.

However, Solskjaer is keen on a left-footed option which saw him pass up on Dayot Upamecano before Bayern Munich signed him. For the right-wing, Bundesliga duo Kingsley Coman and Jadon Sancho are said to be the names that interest them.

It is being said that United are already ready to offer a deal to Coman but Bayern want to tie him down to a new contract. Meanwhile, interest in Sancho hasn’t eroded much with the Red Devils ready to revisit a possible move for him.

Sancho’s teammate at Dortmund, Erling Haaland is also a target for United and has been for a while now. Nonetheless, the German side are keener to keep Haaland than Sancho. That could see United shift their attentions to another Bundesliga striker, Andre Silva. The Portuguese has impressed with his goal tally this season and could be a viable alternative for Haaland.
