Man United to prioritise ‘team-focused’ signings over big names this summer- MEN

Man United resigned to Europa League

Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw with 20th-placed Huddersfield this past weekend.

The result means that United have won just one of their last five Premier League outings.

As such, the poor form of the Red Devils means that they will be playing Europa League football next campaign.

At one point in the season, it did look as though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could guide them to a top-four finish, but their form has declined rapidly since OGS became permanent boss.

With no Champions League football on the horizon, you would think it would make United’s life harder on the transfer market.

However, in a recent interview, Solskjaer claimed that lots of agents have been touting their players to United:

“You’d be surprised how many agents have been touting their players.  Not touting, that’s not the best word, is it? Telling us their players, their clients would love to be a part of Man United in the future.

“And that’s just the lure of Man United, they know, the potential and size of the club, they know in the end that we will get back to the good days.” As quoted by Manchester Evening News.

United’s transfer strategy

Man United have been linked with a number of big-name signings in recent months.

Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale being perhaps the biggest name.

The Red Devils have also been linked with a big-money move for Napoli centre-back, Kalidou Koulibaly.

However, the Manchester Evening News has, on Wednesday, reported that United will be taking a different approach to transfers this summer.

According to the report, both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan want more ‘team-focused’ signings, rather than continuing with United’s recent policy of signings superstar players.

MEN also suggest that United academy stars such as Angel Gomes, James Garner, Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood could find themselves in the club’s first-team next season.
