Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, might spend up to £150 million on net transfers this summer, says ESPN. Read more Man Utd Transfer News here.
The Norwegian is picking up the pieces after a season that ended in disappointment for United. The emphasis moves to the impending summer transfer window now that the campaign is concluded.
It’s no secret that the Red Devils require additional personnel. Solskjaer, on the other hand, will be limited in his ability to strengthen as he sees appropriate with the cash available to him.
United wants to bolster five areas of the team, according to the report. Within the budget limits, it may be impossible to afford all of our first-choice goals.
A new striker, winger, defensive midfielder, center-back, and right-back will be the main targets. The goal, according to Solskjaer, is to recruit three first-team players before the start of the new season.
On the right wing, Jadon Sancho is the obvious pick and will cost roughly £75 million. Even though it is less than we would have had to pay last summer, it still accounts for half of our budget. In other areas, it appears that concessions will be necessary.
Even though investment is required, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and football director John Murtough are apprehensive of allowing a large number of players to change hands in a single window.
United could, of course, raise more money by selling players. Jesse Lingard and Diogo Dalot, for example, have returned to the club following successful loan stints abroad. This summer, there’s a good possibility we’ll be able to get reasonable rates for them.
If we want to cash in, the same may be said of players like David de Gea and Paul Pogba.
Solskjaer acknowledged earlier this month that he does not expect many players to depart the club during the summer transfer window. It’s unclear if this was a generic remark or one that solely applied to the major names.
