5 players that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United should look to sign in the summer transfer window in their quest to win Premier League and Champions League next season. It looks to be a busy window for Manchester United, with new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær looking to build a team in his image after his permanent appointment in March.

It is clear that Manchester United need to strengthen at the back, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Kalidou Koulibaly are the names that seem to be most heavily linked to Man Utd. These signings definitely make a lot sense: whilst the Senegalese centre half is probably the single best player that Solskjær could realistically bring in, the Englishman is putting up record-shattering defensive numbers this season and profiles as one of the best full-backs in Europe right now!

Manchester United are short at full back, with Antonio Valencia leaving the club in the summer and for all of Ashley Young’s passion, he’ll be 34 next season. As much as I love Diogo Dalot he’s only 20 and United lack quality cover at full back. Aaron Wan-Bissaka would be a fantastic addition. The Crystal Palace right back has won a ridiculous 4 tackles per game in the Premier League this season with a completion rate of around 94%.
But, he needs a partner if United have aspirations to win the Premier League. Now, who should that be? Umtiti, Varane, De Ligt or Koulibaly. First up, De Ligt and Varane. Real Madrid have publicly stated that Varane won’t be sold for less than his €500 million euro release clause and Matthijs de Ligt seems keen on following Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona. And if de Ligt does make the move to Barcelona, it’ll spell the end for the next centre back on our list, Samuel Umtiti. The Frenchman is one of the best centre backs in the World and he would be an excellent signing if a knee problem hadn’t surfaced last May. Since then, he has missed 31 games in 12 months for Barcelona. It’s a knee cartilage problem which is unusual in players as young as him. There are parts of loose cartilage, something that forced Carles Puyol to retire and United already have too many injury prone defenders, so a move for Umtiti would make no sense, unless he can miraculously grow new knees which leaves Kalidou Koulibaly. A top quality player. This season, in the Champions League, he has played against Mbappe, Salah and Ronaldo and not looked out of place.
Elsewhere, Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes would add some much-needed creativity to Man Utd’s midfield, especially with rumours swelling of Ander Herrera potentially moving to PSG & Real Madrid clearly eyeing up Paul Pogba with Zinedine Zidane’s return to the helm. This is also where Joao Felix and Ruben Neves would come into play, with the latter also able to dictate games in a way that no current Utd midfielder really can.
Man United are lacking attacking numbers in midfield. United have struggled to break down teams who’ve sat in a deep block this season and if Paul Pogba isn’t at his best or is marked out the game like PSG did with Marquinhos, they have little creativity coming from central midfield. Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes could alleviate this problem. The Sporting Lisbon midfielder is such a technically gifted player, he’s got a powerful strike from range but has the finesse to thread a final ball. He’s created on averaged 3.1 chances per game and he also takes 3.4 shots per game this season. In terms of shots, only Soares in the Liga NOS this season has taken more per game. Bruno Fernandes has developed a “knack” of getting into the box at exactly the right time to finish off moves. He is a “pass and move” style player perfect for Ole’s Manchester United.
Jadon Sancho has more assists with 13 than any other player across Europe’s top five leagues, which will clearly make him hot property this summer. The Englishman has exceeded all expectations this season, and there’s an argument to be made that Utd could bring in a natural right winger in order to gain some balance in attack. If you’re going to do so, who better to bring in than a teenager with more assists than Lionel Messi?’
Here are a couple of transfers that we would like to see:
Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Man Utd
Bruno Fernandes to Man Utd
Kalidou Koulibaly to Man Utd
Jadon Sancho to Man Utd
Joao Felix or Ruben Neves to Man Utd
