According to The Express, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the club’s summer transfer plans are already in place.
The Red Devils are the closest challengers to Manchester City in the Premier League. However, there is still a gap to be bridged if we are serious about usurping Pep Guardiola’s side.
The summer window represents one such opportuunity and could prove to be a pivotal one. It would appear some decisions are already in place.
The Red Devils, at the very least, need a striker and a central defender. The likes of Erling Haaland and Raphael Varane are both on the club’s radar but will not come cheap.
Outgoings are also an issue, with the futures of both Paul Pogba and David de Gea a matter of concern. While there is still an opportunity that the former will stay put, there is increasing speculation regarding the latter’s future.
The Spaniard was left out in favour of Dean Henderson against Brighton and may be having his last dance at Old Trafford.
It promises to be an interesting summer at Old Trafford. With the Euros also set to be held, it is imperative that we get our business done as quickly as possible.
While the club has landed some good players in recent windows, the likes of Jadon Sancho have shown that the club has often lacked the killer instinct.
With a restructure having taken place in the backroom, it will hopefully usher in a new era of no nonsense transfer acumen.
