Manchester United ‘want three more signings’ before the transfer window shuts… with Jadon Sancho their priority while Dynamo Kiev left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko and Bournemouth’s David Brooks are also of interest
- Manchester United have only signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax this summer
- The Red Devils are still keen on snapping up Jadon Sancho from Dortmund
- David Brooks of Bournemouth is seen as a possible alternative to Sancho
- It is reported that United hope to bring in three more signings by next month
Manchester United reportedly want to bring in up to three more signings before the transfer window shuts.
The Red Devils have long been chasing Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho who remains their priority signing.
Manchester Evening News (MEN) have reported that the club want three more signings before October 5, but are open to potentially signing a left-back, a centre-back and a centre-forward.
England star Jadon Sancho is still a key target for Manchester United to secure this summer
Bournemouth youngster David Brooks is seen as a possible alternative signing to Sancho
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are still keen on signing Sancho despite missing a deadline to secure the English winger, who the Germans value at £108m.
It has previously been reported that discussions between the two parties are ongoing, albeit slowly, and United will not negotiate a fee with until a deal has been reached with the 20-year-old’s representatives.
They are said to be looking at a number of alternatives though if they can’t get their man.
The MEN state that David Brooks of Bournemouth has been ‘under consideration by United’ for more than a year, but deemed him too expensive last season with the Championship side then valuing him at £50m.
United could also pursue Douglas Costa from Juventus on a one-year loan deal as a stop-gap until next summer.
A left back is not a priority signing for them but the MEN say that United have been impressed by Vitaliy Mykolenko of Dynamo Kiev.
The 21-year-old is regular for the Ukrainian side and also broken into the national team.
United are also monitoring Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguillon who impressed on-loan at Sevilla against the Red Devils in the Europa League last season.
Donny van de Beek remains Manchester United’s only signing so far this transfer window
Up front Manchester United will have to look for a striker, especially with Odion Ighalo set to return to China in January.
And at centre-back United will look to get rid of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcus Rojo and try and get a replacement.
United have been linked with Dayot Upamecano, though the 21-year-old Frenchman just signed a new deal this summer.
Manchester United have made just the one signing so far this summer, with Donny van de Beek arriving from Ajax for £40m.
Solskjaer will hope for a few more signings to help his side close the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table.
