Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to make all of his summer transfers before the players jet off on their pre-season tour, according to reports.
United had a resurgence after sacking Mourinho and appointing Solskjaer, who won 14 of his 19 games while in caretaker charge of the club, but it is now eight defeats in his last 12 matches, highlighting the scale of the rebuilding job ahead in the summer.
As part of that rebuilding job, the Norwegian is looking for young, hungry players that can make the step up with a number of surprising names linked to United in recent weeks.
The Sun claims that Solskjaer’s plan is ‘to have his squad in place when he returns to training at the start of July’.
The report adds that there are four players in particular that Solskjaer is looking at including Daniel James, whose £15million transfer should be wrapped up next month.
Sean Longstaff is another named by The Sun, with The Telegraph saying on Wednesday that an offer for the midfielder is expected before the weekend.
The other two names are Stoke City’s Nathan Collins and Norwich City’s Ben Godfrey, who both play centre-back for their respective clubs.
