Manchester United finally announced the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka early on Saturday, with the talented right-back signing a five-year contract with the Old Trafford outfit, with an option of a sixth year.

The English defender becomes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second signing at the club, as he follows the footsteps of Daniel James, who was signed from Swansea City in a £15m deal earlier this month.

From these signings, it is quite evident that the Red Devils have now shifted their focus onto recruiting emerging young players instead of readymade superstars.

And as per the latest updates emerging from the English media, this trend looks set to continue for the rest of the summer transfer window.

According to the Telegraph, the Mancunian giants plan on targeting five more players after sealing the deal for Wan-Bissaka.

Maintaining their British focus, United shall immediately turn their attention towards strengthening the central areas of their midfield and defence, and accordingly target Newcastle’s Sean Longstaff and Leicester City star Harry Maguire respectively.

Further, in order to bolster the creativity up front, Solskjaer will also aim to bring in Portuguese sensation Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon.

Lastly, the report adds that Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho and West Ham midfielder Declan Rice have also caught Manchester United‘s interest.

However, it remains to be seen whether the Reds make an official approach for this English duo, with just a little over a month left for the English summer window to close shut.
