Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his assistant, Mike Phelan, have submitted potential transfer targets ahead of the winter transfer market in the New Year.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which revealed that Solskjaer and Phelan have submitted six potential targets ahead of the resumption of the transfer market.

It was also revealed that Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward is skeptical about spending money during the January transfer window due to the last transfer experienced.

The last signing made by Manchester United during the winter transfer market in January was the move involving Chilean international star Alexis Sanchez.

Manchester United signed Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Alexis Sanchez left Arsenal to join Manchester United during the January transfer window in 2018 with the aforementioned Mkhitaryan going in the other direction.

It was revealed that Manchester United paid 30 million pounds plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan to sign Alexis Sanchez.

In addition, Manchester United handed Alexis Sanchez a lucrative weekly salary of almost 500,000 pounds.

Despite the money spent on the Chilean attacker, Alexis Sanchez didn’t reciprocate it with his attacking output on the pitch.

He scored just five goals in 45 appearances before being loaned out to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan this summer.
