Manchester United’s day has been a brilliant one with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed as permanent boss.
That news would perfectly explain the latest transfer exclusive from The Sun. They say that the Red Devils’ summer transfer plans are already well underway, with the club targeting moves for a series of top English talents when the window opens.
Apparently, Solskjaer wants to strengthen United’s spine with a trio of homegrown talents. Amongst those named are Borussia Dortmund hot-shot Jadon Sancho and the emerging defensive-midfielder, Declan Rice.
The aforementioned duo are believed to be atop of United’s wishlist, while a move for an English defender will also come to fruition should one leave.
In that regard, the article names Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a target, while Harry Maguire is also another option the club are exploring.
These guys will all come at a hefty price due to the premium placed upon English homegrown players, but it’s clear what Solskjaer wants. He’s after youngsters rather than going for the older, more expensive players.
It certainly seems like the correct move. Developing talent is in United’s DNA and Solskjaer is clearly keen to stick to the Red Devils’ rich history and traditions. Now, it’s down to The Glazer family and Edward Woodward to fully back their man.
