Man Utd decide on four signings they want next summer as 'significant' moves planned

Man Utd decide on four signings they want next summer as 'significant' moves planned

Man Utd reportedly have a shortlist.

Manchester United have decided on four signings that they want to make next summer, according to a new report.

Erik ten Hag's side got most of their business done early this summer, with Andre Onana, Mason Mount and Rasmus Hojlund all arriving before a ball was kicked in the Premier League.

But that combined spend of over £150 million meant United had to be careful when it came to remaining business. Goalkeeper Altay Bayindir joined the club for around £5 million on deadline day, while they loaned Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina for an initial loan fee of around £8 million.

United had concerns relating to Financial Fair Play (FFP) for much of the window, although did complete some player sales in the closing days and will hope to be in a better position to spend come next summer.

Now, according to a new report, they have decided on four areas to target already.

Man Utd 'decide on four summer targets'

According to Manchester Evening News writer Samuel Luckhurst, United are planning to make four 'significant' signings next summer.

It is claimed that Ten Hag wants a new full-back and centre-back in an overhaul of the defensive department.

He is also said to want to solve the central midfield issue, and is keen on bringing in a new attacker as well. United want to offset their spend by selling players, with outgoings said to be 'expected in most departments'.

Luckhurst adds that United are targeting Evan Ferguson to fill the striking role, although Sky Sports journalist Melissa Reddy has previously claimed that current club Brighton believe he could break the £110 million British transfer record set by Moises Caicedo this summer.

Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen pair Jeremie Frimpong and Edmond Tapsoba have also been eyed to fill defensive slots, with both players of keen interest to the club in the summer.

However, Frimpong has played in a much more attacking wing-back role under Xabi Alonso.

And Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial have been slated as possible outgoings in order to fund any major spend that United sanction next summer.
