Premier League side Manchester United are reportedly plotting to sign four new players ahead of the 2020/21 season according to the newest report in the media in the United Kingdom (UK).

The Daily Mirror revealed that Manchester United are ready to back manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with new players this summer with the Red Devils eyeing a Premier League title challenge for the new season.

The first name on the Manchester United player shortlist is Napoli centre back Kalidou Koulibaly who is likely to leave his Italian Serie A side in the summer. The Senegalese international defender is a long-term transfer target of the Red Devils.

In recent weeks, Koulibaly has missed games because of injury including the last 16 first leg clash between his team and Spanish La Liga leaders Barcelona in the Champions League. The two teams played 1-1 ahead of the second leg clash at the Nou Camp later this year.

The second player on the shortlist at Manchester United is James Maddison who has been one of the best players at Leicester City this season. He has scored nine goals for the former Premier League title winners this term.

James Maddison is a one-cap England national team player and the 23-year-old has three years to go on his Foxes contract meaning that Manchester United will have to pay a lot of cash to prise him away from his club.

The Borussia Dortmund duo of English winger EPL:  and Norwegian international striker Erling Haaland are the third and fourth players on the Red Devils summer shortlist.

Manchester United will have to face other Premier League teams like Liverpool and Chelsea in a three-way fight for Jadon Sancho who wants to return to the Premier League after some years in Germany.

Manchester United missed out on Erling Haaland to Borussia Dortmund in January but they could go back for him as a result of the £67m release clause in his contract with the Germans which takes effect from winter 2021.
