news-details

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly informed the Manchester United board he wants to strengthen the club in four key areas in the summer transfer window.

The Norwegian could be confirmed as the Red Devils' next permanent manager during the upcoming international break after his brilliant stint in charge.

The temporary boss has guided Manchester United back into Champions League contention and the quarter finals of this year's competition.

He is now looking to add his own stamp on Jose Mourinho's Red Devils team and reportedly has four areas in mind that are in need of strengthening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some transfer targets in mind

According to The Metro, Solskjaer held a meeting with the Manchester United board in London last month where he discussed his plans for the future.

He is alleged to have informed the board that he wants to sign a right winger, an attacking midfielder, a left-back and a right-back.

Antonio Valencia is set to leave Manchester United at the end of the season, while Ashley Young is now 33 years old.

Luke Shaw is Man United's only serious left-back option

A right-back is therefore a priority for the Red Devils, who only have Diogo Dalot as a serious long-term option in this area.

The situation at left-back is much the same, with only Luke Shaw an option for the position as Matteo Darmian will likely leave at the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho wanted to strengthen the Red Devils' right wing

Right wing is a position that even Mourinho wanted to strengthen during his stint in charge of the Old Trafford club.

While another attacking midfielder will likely provide more competition for places as well as cover for Paul Pogba in the centre of the park.
