Manchester United target four new signings in the summer

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United will try and sign four new players in the summer as they continue their big spending in an attempt to get back to the top.

Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal spent more than £150 million on six new players last time round, and broke their transfer record to land Angel di Maria from Real Madrid.

Big spending

Now the Telegraph say that they'll open the cheque book once more with the goal of filling four positions in their squad. Van Gaal is said to targeting a ball-carrying midfielder, another central midfielder, a right back and if Radamel Falcao leaves - which seems likely - another striker.

According to the Telegraph, Paul Pogba is the main target and the Red Devils are willing to spend in the region of £60 million to bring him back to Old Trafford.


A new right-back could mean that the future of Rafael is up in the air; so far this season Van Gaal has preferred Antonio Valencia this term and he could be moved on.

The Telegraph say that a number of players could be moved on in what is shaping up to be another summer of upheaval, while the paper adds that the spending isn't dependent of qualifying for the Champions League this season.

Manchester United currently sit in the fourth place in the Premier League ahead of their game against Liverpool today.


Not every signing made by Manchester United last summer was a hit, and although the fans will be excited about the prospect of more signings they need to be cautious not to destroy the heart and soul of the club.

Interestingly, there doesn't seem to room in Van Gaal's plans for a new centre-back which will cause concern for some - they've struggled defensively and need numbers back there.

Who do you think the players Manchester United will sign are?
