Transfer News: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and John Murtough targetting four new arrivals at Manchester United
According to a report by the Express, there is good news on the transfer front for Manchester United fans. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and John Murtough have earmarked four players they want to bring to the club this summer.
It is a pivotal summer for the Red Devils who saw their 2020/21 campaign end in tragic circumstances against Villarreal. We do not have time for self-pity and must build upon last season’s promise by strengthening in the off-season.
Despite the progress, we fell some way short of challenging Manchester City for the title. It would appear United are keen to address that shortcoming and go big in the summer.
Solskjaer is pursuing a number of signings ahead of next season. The loss to Villarreal has solidified his belief that reinforcements are essential.
He is eyeing the additions of a central defender and a winger. United’s search for a striker is not a priority, thanks to Edinson Cavani’s decision to open a new one-year contract. Solskjaer has however not ruled out bringing in a new frontman.
According to a report from Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer and Murtough met on Thursday to discuss their summer recruitment strategy. The pair eventually agreeing on four priority targets in order to take the club forward.
Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, Pau Torres and Declan Rice are the quartet of players in question. However, with a £150m to work with, it remains to be seen whether United will have the finances for all four players.
