They look incredibly light in midfield and did not replace Romelu Lukaku who departed for Inter Milan in the summer.

Check out the list of players as well as the likelihood of the transfer happening below.

  1. Mario Mandzukic (Juventus) - 5/5
  2. James Maddison (Leicester City) - 4/5
  3. Erling Haland (RB Salzburg) - 4/5
  4. Moussa Dembele (Lyon) - 3/5
  5. Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich) - 3/5
  6. Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen) 2/5
  7. Timo Werner (RB Leipzig) - 2/5
  8. Bruno Fernandes (Sporting Lisbon) - 2/5

Solskjaer has said that United may strengthen in the January window but that it is hard to get deals over the line.

Ahead of Thursday's Europa League game versus Partizan Belgrade, the Norwegian said per The Evening Standard:

"The priority now is to get players fit and get through to the next round.

"Transfers - we always look at the league table, look at players. There might be none, there might be one, might be two in January, but the summer window is the big one and you can't do many good deals in January."

There's a variety of talent on that list but only one man stands out as a reported nailed on transfer.

Mandzukic has been linked with United since the summer and he is surplus to requirements at the Serie A champions.

The 33-year-old is yet to feature under Maurizio Sarri and was left out of Juve's Champions League squad at the start of the season.

He'd also bring an experienced head to the young United attack.

Below him is Leicester City star James Maddison.

Maddison has had an excellent start to the season as Leicester sit in third place.

The 22-year-old is a key man at the King Power so it would take a hefty transfer fee to lure him to Old Trafford in the winter.

RB Salzburg sensation Erling Haland is also rated as a likely transfer.

The Norweigan has lit up the Champions League this season and has already scored an astonishing seven goals in four games.

The teenager has worked with Solskjaer before at Molde so there is a glimmer of hope for United fans.

Other names on the list such as Kai Havertz and Jadon Sancho seem very unlikely given their current standing in the game.

The Bundesliga duo are tipped to be two of the world's best in a few years so moving to a troubled United seems a step backwards.

Do you think United will make signings in January?
