Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer helped the club to secure Champions League football and is now seeking four new recruits as he looks to bolster his squad.
The Red Devils beat Leicester to claim third place on the Premier League’s final day and attention now turns to making sure they are prepared to improve again next term.
United have shown in glimpses that they are capable of bothering the elite with several wins over Manchester City and a draw against Liverpool.
But Solskjaer knows their squad still needs reinforcements if they are to return to the success of yesteryear.
And the Norwegian has identified four players in key positions who he wants to add.
Dortmund want £100m for Sancho but United are only prepared to pay £80m meaning a compromise still needs to be reached.
The Senegalese international is renowned as one of the game’s finest defenders and is at his peak at 29 years of age. The Serie A club want around £70m for Koulibaly who has spent six years in Naples.
The boyhood Aston Villa fan is yet to receive international recognition but is highly rated and scored an excellent goal at Old Trafford earlier this season. Villa want around £60m for their star man – a fee the Red Devils are willing to pay.
The Hammers’ prized asset is capable of playing in midfield as well as defence further increasing his appeal. West Ham want around £50m for the Englishman who United may see as an alternative to Jude Bellingham.
