Manchester United have reportedly drawn up a shortlist of eight long-term transfer targets.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to be given funds to strengthen in January as he bids to take United back into the top four of the Premier League.

A move for Mario Mandzukic continues to be mooted with the Juventus striker free to leave when the transfer window reopens.

But ahead of January, Solskjaer has reportedly identified another eight players he wants to bring to Old Trafford.

Mirror Sport reported last week that United are keen on striking a £200m double swoop for Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.

While £100m Sancho would go straight into the side, United are considering loaning Haaland back to Red Bull Salzburg as he continues his remarkable campaign.

ESPN reports there are a host of other players on Solskjaer’s radar, all of whom are under 27, in a clear shift of transfer strategy.

Leicester and England star James Maddison also on United’s wishlist, as is his international teammate Declan Rice.

Moussa Dembele finds the net

With a striker remaining a priority, United have reportedly identified Lyon’s Moussa Dembele while Callum Wilson could bring some Premier League experience.

United have also made checks on Aston Villa pair John McGinn and Jack Grealish.

These targets are likely to be long-term options for United but they could make a move in January, if they do become available.
