Manchester United have made only a single recruitment in the summer, with the capture of Daniel James from Swansea believed to be just one of many moves expected in the current transfer window.
The red devils have been linked with securing several other targets, with the likes of Gareth Bale, Mauro Icardi, Paulo Dybala and Mattijhs De Ligt having all been mentioned.
However, according to recent reports, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will target a new striker next, especially with the increasing possibility of losing Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, – who have recently made inquiries on the player’s availability in the current transfer window, following Antonio Conte’s arrival.
However, three players have been linked to Old Trafford and it is suggested that one of them would certainly be wearing the famous Manchester Red shirt from next season.
The names believed to have been discussed by the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the board include;
- Lille’s Nicolas Pepe
- Lyon’s Moussa Dembele
- Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser
It is suggested that the race for Mauro Icardi, Paulo Dybala and Antoine Griezmann have been deemed some sort too ambitious, and too difficult to pull off, especially with the lack of Champions league football for next season.
Besides, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League and on the European stages for years to come, and he believes securing and grooming the younger players would better suit that course, than signing the rather expensive world-class players.
