Gary Neville has identified three positions that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should prioritize strengthening this summer as Manchester United want to build on their progress this season.
It looks like United will finish in the top four again and still have a good chance of landing the silver medal after winning their first game in the Europa League quarter-final draw with Granada on Thursday.
But it is obvious that the club must invest in its lineup if it wants to reduce the gap with rivals Man City and enter the challenge to cover for the title.
Numerous players are already associated with the move to Old Trafford, but Neville feels Solskjaer need to specifically target certain areas.
Asked during a Twitter question who Man Utd should sign as priorities, Neville said he wanted to see center-back, right-hander and striker all brought to the club.
The central defender has long been a problem for United in recent years as Solskjaer continue to look for a solid partner for captain Harry Maguire.
Sevilla Jules Kounde, RB Leipzig Ibrahim Konate and Brighton Ben White are all connected, while Dan-Axel Zagadou from Borussia Dortmund is also an option.
As for the right-wingers, United seem to have become cold when they signed Jadon Sancho after their failed approach last summer, although it could reactivate their interest when the transfer market reopens.
The need for a striker seems to have become an increasingly important concern as Edinson Cavani approaches the exit door.
The Uruguayan signed a one-year contract with the option to extend for another year in October, although he is said to be dissatisfied with the lack of time to play, and Boca Juniors are now circling around his signing.
Ideally, United would beat competition from almost all major European clubs for Erling Haland, but should probably single out at least a double clause of £ 68m in his contract, which is only due next year.
Neville’s former teammate Paul Scholes identified another possible alternative, but acknowledged that Haaland is a prized gem.
Scholes told BT Sport: “Holland is obvious, isn’t he? Harry Kane?
“These types of players, will they come to Manchester United at the moment? Can United pay money for them?
“I think they probably can, I think it’s up to them which club to choose. I think the two of them would probably have the choice of any club in Europe. ”
Asked if United would spend a lot of money this summer to disembark the striker, Scholes added: “I think I would probably. If that meant getting Halland, then why not?
“It’s a player United will be desperately looking for, a Chelsea player they will despair of.
“Those are probably two clubs that could pay that fee.”
