Despite spending in excess of €300million on transfers within the space of two years, the hierachy at Manchester United doesn’t seem like they are going to relent in their spending next summer.
Following the Red Devils recent exit from the FA cup, the board still hold Ole Gunnar Solskjær in high regard and will be willing to support him once again in transfers.
Manchester United will be looking to land their main target and the hottest youngster in the world currently Erling Haaland despite heavy competition from fellow European giants.
According to recent reports, there are three other English clubs – Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool – amongst other top European clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and PSG who are also very interested in signing Haaland.
It is rumoured that Borussia Dortmund will be looking for a fee in excess of €150million if they are to part ways with the Norwegian striker.
Manchester United are aware of Dortmund’s demands and are looking to sell five fringe players to raise funds for Erling Haaland.
Jesse Lingard, Andreas Perreira, Chris Smalling, Diego Dalot and Donny Van De Beek are the five players Manchester United will sell this summer to fund a move for Haaland.
Luckily four of the five players are loanees and not first team players, so the dynamics of the squad won’t be affected if those players are sold.
Donny Van De Beek is the only first team player on the list. The Netherland International joined the English giants last summer for a fee of around €40million and has been lacking regular game time.
Seeing Manchester United are looking to raise funds for Haaland, a possible transfer for Donny seems very likely if they receive a fair bid for the midfielder.
Meanwhile as Jesse Lingard continues to impress on loan at Westham, the Hammers might be looking to make his loan move permanent.
