Ahead of the new Premier League campaign, Manchester United is aiming to get a barrage of signatures. Having finally shaken off their disappointment at not getting Jadon Sancho, it seems the wheel was set in motion to catch other targets.
The Red Devils are close to landing their first summer signing in the form of the £40 million-rated Van de Beek Ajax Midwayer, who is set to sign a five-year contract with an option for an additional year in the coming days if the rumors are to be believed.
The Red Devils have now turned their attention to signing a defender, prioritizing the Dayot Upamecano deal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned his attention to signing the RB Leipzig Center-back and expects a deal to be reached shortly, according to reports from ESPN.
Solskjaer now makes introducing a new partner to Harry Maguire a priority and has listed the 21-year-old human rights defender as a possible choice.
Upamecano has been closely linked to moving to Arsenal, but United seems to win the race for his signature. He signed a new deal with the Bundesliga side, expiring his previous contract in June 2021.
