Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer wants at least three more signings before the window ends. He wants a centre-back, a right-winger, and a striker for his project to rebuild the empire of Manchester United again.
United is also interested to sign €30m midfielder of Bayern Munich, Thiago. The Spanish midfielder is on the target list of Liverpool as well.
Manchester United has faced some economic problems to sign a player this summer. They need to offload some of their players to sign the desired players.
Jesse Lingard or Andreas Pereira is most likely to leave the club. They have not been performing enough in the last couple of seasons.
Jesse Lingard has scored just 4 goals and assisted another 2 even after been given plenty of opportunities in the first half of last season.
Andreas Pereira was given more time than Lingard but he has also failed to deliver. He has scored just 2 goals and registered 4 assists only.
It was quite natural that they are out of the plans of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the upcoming season.
Plenty of reports claim that AC Milan, Valencia, Newcastle United can be the next destination for them. It will be clear in the upcoming days.
