Manchester United want to sign a central midfielder and a right winger during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly keen on signing a central midfielder and a right winger this summer.

The Red Devils are expected to be active in the market ahead of the 2020-21 campaign as they look to close the gap on bitter rivals Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

According to The Times, United are keen on a permanent deal for on-loan striker Odion Ighalo, but the Red Devils have also identified two positions that are in need of strengthening.

The report claims that head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a central midfielder and a right-sided attacker to boost his squad during this summer's transfer window.

Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford, while Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Birmingham City's Jude Bellingham are also thought to be on the club's shortlist.

Bruno Fernandes arrived in January to boost Solskjaer's options in the middle of the park, but Paul Pogba could be on his way out of the club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
