Manchester United will be targeting four players in the upcoming summer transfer window.
According to TalkSPORT, the Red Devils have prepared a 4-man shortlist for the summer, as they ready themselves for an impressive spending spree.
The first player on the list is a relatively new transfer target, in the form of Crystal Palace’s 21-year-old full-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
With both Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young nearing the twilights of their respective careers, and Diogo Dalot still too inexperienced to become an established starter, United could target the Eagles’ full-back, who is currently valued around £40 million.
The next two names on the Mancunians’ wish-list are both central defenders from the Serie A, viz. Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Inter star Milan Skriniar.
Manchester United are yet to find a reliable centre-back partner for Victor Lindelof, which could convince them to break the world transfer record for a defender for Koulibaly, as well as shell out up to £76m for Skriniar, and effectively bring in two world-class defenders.
The final name on this list is that of Barcelona‘s midfield maestro, Ivan Rakitic. The Catalans are reportedly ready to part ways with the Croatian international, so as to lighten their huge wage bill.
The Reds could therefore take advantage of the situation, and recruit the experienced 30-year-old to add to their already strong midfield department.
An impressive transfer plan overall, but it will be interesting to see which of these deals actually materialise before the start of next season.
