Manchester United transfer news: Who should Man Utd sign this summer? Vote now

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not yet sure how the coronavirus pandemic will impact the club’s summer transfer plans. United have spent over £200million in the last 12 months adding Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James and Bruno Fernandes.

Solskjaer would have been keen to continue his squad overhaul this summer but the same level of funding may not be as readily available.

“I think the pandemic has hit everyone really hard,” Solskjaer said before Saturday’s win over Norwich.

“I still think we need to wait and see how things are panning out to know the real effects of the pandemic, to know what kind of financial state we are in.

“You see some teams invest, some teams don’t. We’ll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we’ve been hit. I know the club has announced a few numbers before.

“It’s not for me to say here now we are going to have X amount because I don’t really know. I don’t really know how hard we have been hit. We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else.

“Let’s see how quickly we can get our fans back into the stadium and of course the league position is going to be important for us this season. If we can get a trophy, the FA Cup or the Europa League.

“The Europa League will also qualify us for the Champions League, there’s still a lot of uncertainty and these three or four months, every businessman in the world, every footballer in the world, I think everyone is still unsure what the effect will be.”

  • Man Utd have the perfect way round Borussia Dortmund’s Sancho price

While United prepare their summer transfer plans, former star Phil Neville says the club are just one signing away from challenging for the Premier League title.

The Red Devils haven’t won the league since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in 2013 and were left watching on as bitter rivals Liverpool ended their 30-year wait for the title this term.

Speaking to Premier League Daily, Neville said: “I think one more signing. You think about Liverpool signing [Virgil] Van Dijk and Alisson in goal.

“One or two more signings or [Paul] Pogba and one more signing playing to their absolute best. I think United can get closer.”
