According to The Sun, Manchester United have made moves for four young stars.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his signings done before the team head off on pre-season tour in July, which is usually a request from the manager, but Ed Woodward’s track record doesn’t give much hope.
Solskjaer recently said, as quoted by The Sun: “We’re going to sit down and go through all the plans.
“And we’ll be ready when 1 July comes. There will be no excuses.
“You never get a break from football. You always think about it.
“Even back home in Norway, I’m watching games analysing what went wrong, what went well.”
The report claims United have already made moves for Daniel James (Swansea City), Sean Longstaff (Newcastle), Nathan Collins (Stoke City) and Ben Godfrey (Norwich City).
Swansea winger James, 21, looks certain to sign for the Reds but has been left devastated by his father’s passing this week. His move should be completed over the next month.
All four of the players listed here are hardly household names just yet, but it shows that United have a plan in place rather than try outspend Europe’s biggest clubs on marque signings.
The Reds must lay the right foundations for those world-class players to come in and take advantage of… Right now, United have a bad mix in the dressing room and Solskjaer must find a way to improve things quickly.
