Man United’s poor start to the season doesn’t appear to deter their intent at excelling. If anything, it seems certain that the club is eager to amend their flaws and not repeat the errors they made in the past transfer windows.

In that regard, 2020 is all set to be the best transfer year for the club and will bring forth the much-needed squad overhaul.

According to the MEN, Man United have assessed their options and are looking to make four crucial signings over the course of the winter and summer windows.

The theme is in continuation with that of this summer, with promising British talent being given the priority. A full-back, a midfielder, a forward, and a dedicated striker are reportedly the regions where reinforcements will be sought.

In that regard, the players that are targeted are Declan Rice, James Maddison, Jadon Sancho, and Ben Chilwell.

All players are British and within their 20s and will function as probable replacements to departing talent. The club is expected to bid farewell to ageing players like Ashley Young and Nemanja Matic while the stints to Phil Jones and Chris Smalling also on the line to be terminated, with Smalling already serving out a loan spell.

Further, the loan spell of Alexis Sanchez is also believed to be in line for a permanent sale. In that regard, the report claims that the higher-ups at Old Trafford are most confident of retaining the services of Paul Pogba despite the strong suggestions that he will renew his push for an exit.

Moreover, the club is aware that these pieces of business won’t be easy and may draw up a long list of alternate targets too.

Judging by this claim. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be enjoying the long-term trust of the board. Will it remain strong though?
