Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United board to make four signings when the summer transfer window opens.
The Norwegian is now a certainty to be named permanent manager following a sensational three months as caretaker and the club could even make the announcement before the end of the season.
The Metro claims Solskjaer held an informal meeting with the club’s board in their London office in February to discuss the areas of the squad he’d like to invest in and he informed club executives that the club need to strengthen at right-back, left-back, right wing and attacking midfield.
The areas Solskjaer pointed out where Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian replacement as the duo are expected to leave the club this summer, while Ashley Young will be close to 35 years old by the time his one-year extension expires in 2020.
An attacking midfielder is viewed as the least pressing area for investment given United have the likes of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard to play there but Solskjaer did raise the need for one during talks.
It is understood United are prepared to hand Solskjaer a £200m transfer kitty and will reallocate any funds raised from player sales to bolster his squad.
