Solskjaer

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, wants three more players this summer, after completing a £40.3million deal for Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek, the UK Times reports.

Van de Beek completed his medicals on Monday in Amsterdam, after he was given permission to leave the Dutch national team camp.

Although Jadon Sancho was United’s priority for months, the Red Devils moved quickly to seal a deal for the 23-year-old.

Sancho remains of the three players Solskjaer is eager to add to his squad ahead of next season.

Solskjaer wants Sancho to fill a void on the right wing, where Mason Greenwood had temporarily filled towards the end of the season.

Although Greenwood shone last term, Solskjaer feels his long-term future is through the middle.

The United boss also wants to sign a fast centre-back to play alongside Harry Maguire. Victor Lindelof partnered Maguire throughout last season, but neither of them possess the pace to play a high line.

RB Leipzig defender, Dayot Upamecano, is a target for the club but there are doubts over if the Frenchman is ready for Premier League football.

Solskjaer is keen on signing another striker. Odion Ighalo extended his loan at the club until January, but his playing time has reduced since the restart. The manager is now looking at the market for a better alternative to Anthony Martial.
