MANCHESTER UNITED are primed to spend big in order to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a good start



Manchester United have been stuck in a rut under Solskjaer ever since the 46-year-old steered them past PSG and into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Their struggles on the pitch have highlighted the need to recruit shrewdly this summer, with the Red Devils a shadow of their former selves.

Plenty of incomings - as well as outgoings - are expected at Manchester United with the club eager to reel in Manchester City and Liverpool at the summit of the English game.

Jan Oblak could be among them, with the Atletico Madrid star earmarked as the club’s top choice to replace David De Gea.

De Gea is stalling on a new United contract and, with no breakthrough in sight, a parting of the ways could be on the cards.

Oblak would likely start next season as the Red Devils’ No 1 goalkeeper, despite having Sergio Romero in reserve.

At right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is in their sights.

The youngster has had a great season at Crystal Palace and, with Antonio Valencia leaving, United want a transfer.

He is their top choice to replace Valencia and reports have claimed a deal may be struck for £40million.

Victor Lindelof would likely start at centre-back but he may have a new partner.

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could sign six stars this summer .

Solskjaer wants United to sign a defender - just like Jose Mourinho did a year ago - and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld can be snared for just £25million.

The Belgian would provide some much-needed experience to Solskjaer’s backline and would be a bargain buy, allowing money to be spent elsewhere.

Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are expected to be regulars next season. McTominay’s fine form means Solskjaer may even promote him next term.

And the youngster could be playing alongside Toni Kroos, rather than Paul Pogba.

Solskjaer would supposedly like to land the Real Madrid star if Pogba manages to push through a move to the Bernabeu.

And Real may be willing to sell given how much Zinedine Zidane wants the United star.

Man Utd want to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund

Bruno Fernandes is leading the charge to replace Ander Herrera, with reports suggesting the Red Devils were accelerating their pursuit.

On the right wing, Jadon Sancho is Solskjaer’s No 1 target.

Borussia Dortmund have insisted the England international will not be going anywhere but United’s financial muscle could see that change.

Dortmund have proven to be a selling club in the past and, if United come in with a £100million bid, that may be enough to entice them to sell.

Sancho would then play on the right with Marcus Rashford in the middle and Anthony Martial on the left.

Man Utd predicted team in full (4-3-3): Oblak, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Alderweireld, Shaw, McTominay, Fernandes, Kroos, Sancho, Martial, Rashford.
