Manchester United would be looking to add a new goalkeeper, young midfielder and striker in the summer transfer window
According to Manchester Evening News editor Samuel Luckhurst (h/t centredevils) via Twitter, Manchester United would look to add a new goalkeeper, a young midfielder and a striker as primary arrivals in the summer transfer window.
Everyone could see that the team under Erik ten Hag is taking shape and there are huge signs of progression. From the disastrous end of last season to halfway through the current season, things look miles apart.
Adding to the fact that Ten Hag has had only one window to bring his targets, which is certainly not enough to bring a huge chunk of high-quality players.
Still, the players that have been brought in are doing extremely well. While the club is undergoing the process of change of ownership, there was not much budget to work on for the manager in the January transfer window.
It was said that only loan deals are a possibility to bring improvements to the current squad and the recruitment team has done well to get in three players in Jack Butland, Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer.
Nothing more than that could have been achieved with the restrictions at hand in the January transfer window, with many believing it to be the last transfer window under the Glazers family.
The Glazers are actively looking to sell the club and there are speculations of a full sale in the first financial quarter of 2023.
Hence, new ownership would bring in additional funds needed to improve the squad and it is imperative that a desired list of targets is made beforehand to make the job easier once the summer transfer window arrives.

David de Gea has failed to fully convince he is capable of protecting the line under Ten Hag while loan moves for Weghorst and Sabitzer signify the need for new reinforcements in the striker and midfield departments.
It was dreadful to watch our rivals spend big to strengthen their teams in the January transfer window but with a new sense of optimism about the club, the coming summer transfer window does bring along certain excitement with it.
