Solskjaer ready to promote Man Utd academy stars alongside £135m double transfer for youthful duo

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly ready to keep on promoting the club’s academy youngsters next season alongside his transfer plans for the summer.

The likes of Tahith Chong, James Garner, Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood have moved that bit closer to the first-team under Solskjaer, and it seems that that policy could continue next season.

In general, it seems Solskjaer is eager to put together an exciting young side as Jadon Sancho and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are among his top transfer targets, according to the Telegraph.

Sancho has been linked with Man Utd a lot recently, with the most recent report from the Independent stating the £100million-rated 19-year-old is seen as an ideal Alexis Sanchez replacement by the club.
