Manchester United active in transfer market after recent meeting

Manchester United are continuing to work on reinforcing their squad after the latest recruitment meeting last week, according to reports.

The Manchester Evening News claims manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attended the meeting.

United’s technical chief scout Mick Court was responsible for writing up a shortlist of transfer targets in January, which gave director of football negotiations Matt Judge time to open dialogue with various players’ representatives. In turn United can find out what is realistic as the transfer window opens.

The MEN go on to report United are interested in Raphael Varane, Declan Rice and Jadon Sancho.

Only time will tell if Real Madrid sell Varane this summer, but the word on the street is Rice will be priced out of a move from West Ham. Sancho is a target from last year and it wouldn’t surprise us if he ended up at Old Trafford before Euro 2020.

The Frenchman appears to be the man Solskjaer wants to partner skipper Harry Maguire at the back, and he’d certainly help us compete at the highest level in the Champions League. Not to mention the different I think Sancho could bring on the right flank.

Assistant manager Mike Phelan is also said to have been in attendance for the meeting, as well as football director John Murtough.

    So Solskjaer wants to keep Martial? Another untouchable like Rashford. I am not surprised he wants to keep Martial. His failure to recognise another failure is epic. This manager will not win anything because he is not assertive. The club must send Solskjaer packing and ask him to take Martial with him. Martial will cost Solskjaer his job.

      I must say you need to understand football very well before you go online to make comment about players. If you think Martial should leave man utd then i must say you know nothing about football, and you are number one of man utd enemy of progress. Bcos Martial is one of man utd best forward player. Not that stupid Rashford, James or whoever you think you have at man utd forward. This guy martial is the only player in man utd that can dribble in and out of the box to cause foul, either penalty or free kick. Every strong team needs a good forward player that can dribble at least 2-3 players. and man utd dont have such player but only Martial.

      • Robert, this is a bit ridiculous and I don’t want to get too involved in this exchange. But if you’re going to warn people about ‘understanding football’ before they go online to make comments about them, you should probably take that advice before blabbing on about Martial and slagging off players like Rashford and James. Totally defeats the argument you began with.

        Martial was poor this season. So poor that his future at the club should come under question – because it’s not acceptable. He’s not a youngster anymore. Rashford still scored over 20 goals despite not playing great…

    i dont think our transfer strategy has really improve because we do wasted more time to wrap up deals.

    also untill i see the list of outgoing players in the team before i could trust Ole gunner as our manager


    Obviously few players must go… improve the vacant position with quality players – sacho, varane, rice & reus + oblak.
