Manchester United squad overhaul will be active in January window
Manchester United have won the most points among the Premier League clubs since their shameful defeat to Tottenham Hotspurs at home this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also have a perfect away record this season in the league and have won 10 consecutive away Premier League games. Boss Solskjaer is aiming to win the title over the next two years and according to reports by Manchester Evening News, Manchester United will be bringing in reinforcements and complete a squad overhaul over the next two transfer windows. Fabrizio Romano has stated that United will be active during the January transfer window.
The Red Devils have completed the signing for Amad Diallo from Atalanta for a fee of 25 million pounds with an add on of 15 million pounds. Solskjaer has plans to keep at least two players for a single position to increase the competition at the side. The English side are currently looking for a new center-back, a right-back, a defensive midfielder, and a natural winger. Reports also suggest that the club are targetting Raphael Varane, Kieran Trippier, Dayot Upamecano and Declan Rice.
Varane was in bad form at the start of this year and the player is struggling to find his form at Real Madrid this season too. Boss Zinedine Zidane has stated that the France international is not for sale but United are hopeful to find a solution. RB Leipzig’s defender Dayot Upamecano has a release clause of 38 million pounds and is likely to leave next summer with FC Bayern Munich and Manchester United as the possible destinations.
United will be battling their Premier League rival Chelsea for the signature of West Ham midfielder, Declan Rice. Ole has rated the England international very highly in the recent podcast in MUTV. The arrival of Kieran Trippier will provide competition to Aaron Wan Bissaka for the right-back spot. The 23-year-old has not been in great form this season and will be looking to find his feet again at the back.
