According to Manchester Evening News (MEN), Manchester United have four main priorities ahead of the winter transfer market which reopens in six weeks’ time.
Manchester United have not lived up to the expectations of their fans this season and that has seen the Red Devils fall behind their rivals on the Premier League table.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be backed with new players to improve his squad.
The aforementioned publication outlined four priorities for Manchester United during the January transfer window.
The first is to sign a forward after the Red Devils failed to replace Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku last summer after his transfer to Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.

The second priority is to strengthen the midfield during the January transfer window since the club failed to replace Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini who left earlier this year.
The third is to sell Nemanja Matic who has fallen further down the midfield pecking order at Old Trafford behind the likes of Scott McTominay, Fred and Andreas Pereira.
The fourth and final priority is to resolve the futures of Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong at the club, the two young players have less than one year left on their respective contracts.
