Solskjaer wants four more Man United signings after Sancho, including fellow England international

Posted by

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen to land as many as five new signings in this summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils weren’t too far off challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title last season, finishing in second place, while they were also beaten by Villarreal in the Europa League final.

It seems clear that a few signings could make all the difference for Man Utd, and the Telegraph report that Solskjaer wants to strengthen with potentially five new players.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is United’s priority, according to the Telegraph, while Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier is also on their agenda.

The report adds that Solskjaer would ideally also like a new centre-back, a striker, and a defensive midfielder in this major squad overhaul.

It will be interesting to see if United can get these players in, with the club often showing plenty of ambition in the transfer market down the years.

MUFC often seem to land some big names, but that approach hasn’t always worked out well for them as the likes of Angel Di Maria, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku have ended up flopping at the club.

Sancho and Trippier seem like fine potential additions if United can bring in the England duo, and fans will surely agree that a striker and a defender should also be on the agenda.

  1. There is absolutely no point bringing in a CB or a striker before bringing in a proper CDM, someone in the mould of NDidi or Kante. This would release the need for McTominay and Fred and allow Pogba or Van De Beek to play box to box. This would then increase supply to and create more options up front. Yes we need a reliable partner for Maguire but we also need to fill this hole in middle of our midfield.

  2. CDM is more of a priority than any other position I would say. We had points dropped last season since we played 2 defensive mids who arent proper CDMs. If Rice is too costly, find someone else who can be a wall in front of our defense. I feel that our defense will be elevated if we have a proper CDM who can cover them by dropping back and defending.
