Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly told club chief Ed Woodward to sign four players before the 1st. of July.

The Norwegian is expected to oversee a major overhaul of the squad in the summer with the likes of Alexis Sanchez likely to be shown the door.

Ander Hererra has already confirmed his departure and fellow Spaniard Juan Mata is expected to follow him.

Solskjaer has previously mentioned that he’d be looking to sign young hungry players instead of marquee names on his teamsheet and it looks very likely to be the case.

The Red Devils have reportedly agreed on terms with Swansea winger Daniel James with the move delayed due to the untimely demise of the Welshman’s father.

Sean Longstaff of Newcastle United has also been linked heavily with a move to Old Trafford even when the club maintain that they are not interested in signing the 21-year-old.

Apart from these two, Solskjaer is looking into Norwich City star Ben Godfrey and Stoke City defender Nathan Collins who have both impressed for their respective sides in the Championship this season.

The United boss is keen on completing these signings quickly preferably before July 1st so that the youngsters have the chance to get acquainted with the scheme of things around the club.

Shedding some light into the club’s transfer window approach, Solskjaer told the club’s official website: ‘In my view, the best players have always been the best people, so you have to have that value system, a certain kind of attitude about you to make a Man United player.

‘But you’ve got to have the quality too. Our fans want to see exciting players, they want to get off their seats, they want to see defenders defend… You have to have a work ethic. So we’re scouting the market trying to find the right ones.’
