Man United’s summer window
Manchester United endured something of a mixed summer transfer window.
Donny van de Beek was the first name through the door at Old Trafford, and will likely go on to prove a useful asset.
Alex Telles is almost certainly an upgrade on United’s current left-backs, whilst Edinson Cavani is no doubt a better back-up centre-forward than Odion Ighalo, who is set to leave the club in January.
Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo are also extremely talented young prospects, who could develop into major contributors for the Red Devils down the line.
However, despite, in the end, having done some decent business, Man United’s transfer window could easily still be looked upon as a failure.
This comes with the club having not managed to secure a deal for Jadon Sancho, who was known to represent a key target of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United also failed to strengthen at centre-back, an area in which they have been lacking quality for some time.
Man United eyeing four players
Now, though, a recent report stemming from the English media suggests that Man United are intent on addressing several problem areas over the coming year.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Reds hope to complete their squad overhaul across the next two transfer windows, to ensure the availability of two quality players in each position on the pitch come the start of next season.
When it comes to the specific areas being targeted, the MEN claim that United are eyeing a ready-made winger (presumably a right-sided winger), a centre-back, a right-back and a defensive midfielder.
However, significantly, it is added that none of the reinforcements in question are expected to arrive in January.
