Manchester United have reportedly made Napoli’s star Kalidou Koulibaly and Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar their top targets for the summer transfer market.
The Red Devils have had a quiet January market, failing to bring in a single player with lack of certainly still surrounding their managerial position.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s record of eight victories and one draw from his nine games at the helm have catapulted him into contention to get the job on a permanent basis, but Manchester United have been reluctant to spend huge money midway through the season.
However, they are still interested in bolstering their defensive options when the market reopens in the summer, and The Independent reports that they have placed Skriniar and Koulibaly at the top of their wanted list.
Both players were too expensive to target this January, but the board are ready to invest in the long-term future of the club once they have appointed new permanent manager and a director of football.
Manchester United will instead now focus on securing the futures of important players, having tied Anthony Martial down to a fresh long-term deal on deadline day.
