Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 'gives Ed Woodward transfer wishlist'

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly tells executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward which three areas of the field he wants to strengthen most this summer.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly given executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward his transfer wishlist ahead of the summer window.

The Red Devils have been linked with a host of high-profile names in recent months, despite Woodward already warning that spending will be affected by the coronavirus lockdown.

The Telegraph reports that Solskjaer has now outlined which areas of his side he feels most need improvement ahead of a possible return to the Champions League next season.

Top of the list is thought to be a new right winger, with Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho still the priority target amid reports that United have put money aside for the England international.

Solskjaer is also keen to bolster his ranks with a new centre-back to act as a partner for Harry Maguire, and a new centre-forward with loanee Odion Ighalo set to leave the club in January.

United had previously been tipped to move for a midfielder - with Jack Grealish, Saul Niguez and James Maddison among the names linked - but the return of Paul Pogba and form of Bruno Fernandes are thought to have lessened their need to strengthen in that area of the field.

United currently sit fifth in the Premier League table - a finish which would be good enough for Champions League qualification as things stand.
