Solskjaer Names Three More Signings He’s Chasing After Donny Van De Beek Transfer

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has mentioned to the Old Trafford club he wants at least three more signings in addition to the imminent arrival of Donny van de Beek this summer.

United look set to complete a £40m deal for the Dutch attacking midfielder from Ajax in the coming days, with Van De Beek to become their first player through the door since January.

The Red Devils have been linked with a whole host of other big name signings, most notably Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, but nothing has materialized up till now.

But according to The Times, Solskjaer is still desperate to add a centre-back, right-winger and striker to his squad before the transfer window slams shut next month.

Thus, they need to sell before they can buy, and the likes of Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard are most likely to move on.

Solskjaer’s side have not given up hope of luring Sancho to United, despite Dortmund previously insisting they would not budge on their £108m valuation of the player.

With regards to a centre-back, the United boss is said to be keen on a pacey partner in the person of RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano for Harry Maguire.
